Safeguarding The Future Of Juveniles Facing Criminal Charges

At the Law Office of Eric T. Hamilton, in Visalia, California, I have more than 20 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, and have worked extensively with minors charged with juvenile offenses. A sole practitioner, I will work directly with you throughout the process, providing caring and informative counsel. I take a serious approach to all criminal matters, providing vigorous advocacy dedicated to protecting your rights. An experienced trial attorney, I receive many of my new cases as referrals from clients or from other lawyers.

The Defender Minors Need To Protect Their Rights

I handle all types of juvenile offenses, from so-called “status crimes,” such as truancy, to charges related to drugs, alcohol, vandalism or sexual offenses.

I provide comprehensive counsel to individuals under the age of 18, working with minors and their parents to find solutions that meet your needs. Because of my considerable experience in the local legal community, I have a strong working relationship with the courts, the judges and the prosecutors, and can often negotiate results that minimize the impact on your future. This customarily involves rehabilitation rather than incarceration, and often includes participation in diversionary programs.

I understand the stress and anxiety you can feel if you or your child has been charged with a juvenile offense. I work hard to be available when you need answers to your questions, and carefully explain the law and the process, so that you always know what to expect.

I have worked extensively with the juvenile courts, including the juvenile probation department, and am familiar with the different programs available to minors, including counseling.
