Juvenile delinquency proceedings are different than adult criminal cases in critical respects. The goal of the proceeding is rehabilitation of the child, not just protection of the public. A broad range of dispositional options are available in order to help the minor thrive physically, mentally and emotionally. Kids are judged as kids. After all, children do not have the same mental capacity, impulse control, and maturity as adults.
Alanna Coopersmith represents kids accused of criminal activity in juvenile delinquency proceedings. She has experience working with youth and their families in order to achieve the best possible outcome for juvenile clients and their families.
In addition to juvenile delinquency cases, she also fights on behalf of kids charged with particularly serious offenses like murder and robbery in adult court.
