What Is the Role of a Juvenile Lawyer?

Parents have a natural desire for their children to submit to the authority of the court or the police and confess their mistakes to the juvenile attorney in West Palm Beach. Often, a school will suspend or expel a student based on a juvenile offense that has nothing to do with a child's behavior at school.

If a school tries to expel your child, the outcome of the case in juvenile court will have a significant impact on your child's scholastic future. Although a responsible parent's reaction is understandable, a juvenile situation can have long-term consequences.

A Juvenile Lawyer’s Role

What Do They Do?

Depending on the situation, a juvenile attorney has a variety of responsibilities. This type of attorney may represent youngsters in criminal cases and should be well-versed in the law as it pertains to minors.  

Another responsibility they have is to represent a child's best interests in a civil or criminal case. To operate properly in this capacity, a knowledge of both family law and juvenile criminal law is generally required in both situations.

Choosing the Right Juvenile Attorney

Always ask the following questions when choosing an attorney to defend your child in juvenile court.

  1. How many cases have you brought before the juvenile court for trial?
  1. How much of your practice is spent in juvenile court?
  1. In your professional career, how many juvenile court cases have you handled?
  1. Are you aware of the legal distinctions between juvenile and adult criminal proceedings?

Selecting the ideal juvenile attorney for your child's case entails finding someone with experience in the juvenile court and someone who will fight for your child's best interests.

Better call Saul? More like, BETTER CALL OLSON!

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
