In addition to probation staff, we have two court-appointed attorneys who represent children beginning at the point of intake. Court appointed attorneys represent the child in juvenile matters. Parents have the option to retain an attorney for their child; a retained attorney would need to file a notice of appearance with the Juvenile Clerk prior to gaining information concerning the case.
We also work closely with the District Attorney's office as well. There is an assistant district attorney (ADA) assigned to juvenile court. This ADA has an understanding of the purpose of juvenile court's rehabilitative approach in working with juveniles and works to assist in your child's success while holding him/her accountable for their actions and protecting the victims and the community. If you are a victim of a crime or have questions of the District Attorney's Office you may reach an ADA at 205-669-3750.
