Keeping Your Juvenile Case Where It Belongs – Kalamazoo’s Juvenile Court System

One of the key considerations in any juvenile crime case is what court will actually make the decision. In most cases involving defendants under the age of 17, proceedings will go through the juvenile court, which is a division of the family court system. In juvenile courts, adult jail time won’t be on the line, and sentences are often more rehabilitative, and usually lighter, than sentences handed out in adult courts.

In cases involving charges that correspond to felonies, the juvenile court can waive the case up to adult court at a waiver hearing. Our lawyers know how important it is to ensure this doesn’t happen in your case, and are prepared to defend your right to be heard in juvenile court, no matter what it takes.

This doesn’t mean that we aren’t completely prepared to win your case in adult court, however. Our experienced team has been providing criminal defense statewide for over 15 years, and we have helped clients in tough felony cases in various courts statewide. We know what it takes to get exceptional outcomes, even in the most serious cases such as those involving criminal sexual conduct, assault, and even murder.
