Juvenile Justice Division

The Juvenile Justice Division represents youths accused of crimes ranging from first-degree murder to graffiti. By law, these clients are 17 years old or younger when the incident that triggers their cases begin. Our lawyers also represent children in situations in which the State is seeking to have the case transferred to adult court. In addition to the work done at the Juvenile Court facility at Ogden and Hamilton, attorneys travel to three suburban locations where juvenile cases are heard once a week. Those suburbs are Skokie, Rolling Meadows, and Bridgeview.
