Because of the process and how it’s designed, we really encourage our clients in a juvenile case to retain a lawyer as soon as possible. Because often times, we might be able to find something that would allow the child to return back home, that may otherwise be overlooked. It’s really time critical that the attorney gets involved early on those cases.
Are Cases Heard by Juvenile Court 5 or 7 Days a Week?
Interviewer: Is there any court on the weekend or just weekdays?
Amir Ladan: There’s court seven days a week. There are always arrests being made. So, 365 days a year there are initial appearances being held by a judge someplace in the county to cover those hearings. There’s someone that’s doing them on a rotating basis on weekends and holidays. Like I said, it’s 365 days a year.
Interviewer: At least holidays or the day before holidays don’t impact whether or not their case will be heard.
Amir Ladan: That’s right. They’re always going to have an opportunity to be seen. It’s generally going to be within 24 hours of their arrest.
Interviewer: Well, at least that’s good to know.
