Retain An Attorney If Your Child Is Detained

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.

Interviewer: For parents with juveniles that are convinced they should seek the services of an attorney like you, how should they contact you? What should they do next?

Amir Ladan: We answer our phones 7 days a week. The best thing to do would be to pick up the phone and call us at the main number of (407) 487-2522 or visit We’ve got a whole section on juvenile law on our website and answers to some frequently asked questions that can help parents when they are facing a juvenile case with their child.

We don’t use an answering service. Clients are going to speak with an criminal defense attorney on the other end of the line. Right away, we can begin talking about what we need to do to put things into place.
