Focused on Rehabilitation, Not Punishment
The juvenile justice system is predominantly focused on rehabilitating minors so that they are deterred from committing further crimes in the future. When it is in a client’s interests, we work hard to secure alternatives to confinement, such as treatment programs, counseling, house arrest or other options.
