A Former Prosecuter Aggressively Fighting for You

Scott C. Thomas protects your rights against DUI or DWI charges.

A juvenile is anyone under the age of 18 who is accused of committing a crime. When a juvenile is charged with any type of criminal offense, their case will be heard in juvenile court, rather than adult criminal court.

Such cases are often complex and emotionally charged, which is why it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable Orange County juvenile defense attorney on your side. At the Law Office of Scott C Thomas, our Orange County juvenile defense lawyers are committed to providing aggressive, detail-oriented representation.

We understand the importance of protecting a young person’s rights, and we are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to get the optimal result in each case. Let our team of attorneys use their experience and resources to protect your child’s rights in court.
