The defense attorneys at Eisner & Gorin, LLP, specialize in the defense of juveniles in San Fernando Court, Sylmar Juvenile Court, Pasadena Juvenile Court, and throughout the County of Los Angeles Juvenile Court System. Our juvenile defense attorneys are fierce advocates for minors charged with crimes. We understand the anxiety that arises when our children experience trouble with the law. We are also aware of the consequences a juvenile record, or possible incarceration, could have on your child’s future, jeopardizing future career and educational opportunities.

Our firm partners are former Los Angeles Juvenile Prosecutors with over 50 years combined experience of litigating cases in the juvenile court system and know how to protect your rights and the rights of your children. We understand how the government builds its case against juveniles, and know where to find problems of proof in its case.

Firm Partner Dmitry Gorin previously worked as a juvenile deputy district attorney assigned to the Juvenile Branches in Sylmar and Pasadena Courts. He is an experienced juvenile attorney who has successfully represented children accused of juvenile crimes including Violent Crime, Sex Crime, Domestic Violence, Theft-Fraud, BurglaryDUI, Vandalism, Weapons Charges, Bench Warrants and Drug Offenses.

Our Pre-Eminent juvenile defense firm uses a systematic and aggressive approach to the defense of juveniles. We work to prevent the child from being prosecuted as an adult. California law has expanded, under Welfare and Institutions Code Section 707(b), who can be prosecuted in adult court. Our focus is to discourage the state from directly filing on minors in adult court and to prevail on any Fitness Motion the district attorney’s office files in juvenile courts in Sylmar, Pasadena, and Los Angeles County.

Unlike some lawyers who only practice in adult court, our defense lawyers have extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles Juvenile Court System and the Welfare and Institutions Code. We have obtained hundreds of dispositions in juvenile delinquency and criminal courts where the child received an informal disposition pursuant to Welfare and Institution Codes 654, 725, and 790. In this way, we have kept our minor without a record of conviction and sustained juvenile petitions for juvenile crime allegations of assault, extortion, DUI, possession of a weapon, sexual misconduct, drug use and sales, and vandalism.

We protect our clients’ futures by fighting aggressively for their rights today! California juvenile law provides numerous legal options under the Welfare and Institutions Code to avoid a conviction in juvenile court. In the event a child has a prior sustained petition or conviction, we work to seal their juvenile records as soon as possible.

Further, just as with adult criminal matters, we aggressively seek to file Motions to Suppress Illegal Evidence. When we demonstrate to the juvenile court that government violated your child’s constitutional rights, the entire juvenile petition and criminal case may dropped or dismissed.

Top-Rated Juvenile Defense Attorneys: Provide Immediate Response 24/7

When a minor is arrested, there are many factors that must immediately be managed, including the fact that the arrest may have taken place in the middle of the night, or the wee hours of the morning, or on a holiday or weekend. The juvenile court does not provide for Bail and thus an immediate Pre-Filing intervention with the probation department is required.

The criminal justice system operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the year, and so does the criminal defense firm of Eisner & Gorin, LLP. Any client, whether an adult or juvenile, new to the Firm or with an existing case, can reach the Firm in the event of an emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including Sundays and holidays. No client should ever be left alone to deal with the authorities without expert criminal defense work – this is especially the case for juveniles.
