Practice Areas

Juvenile Law

Karp & Weiss attorneys are experienced in every facet of laws that impact juveniles. Our criminal defense attorneys have experience in defending juveniles charged with crimes in the Juvenile Court. Juvenile Court in Pima County operates under a different set of rules than Pima County Superior Court, Pima County Justice Court, or Tucson City Court. The Juvenile Court also has different monitoring procedures for juveniles who are convicted of crimes. It is important that juveniles have an experienced advocate to defend them in the juvenile law process. Karp & Weiss attorneys also are experienced in representing juveniles charged as adults in Superior Court.

In the event a juvenile is accused of misconduct at school, but not charged with a crime by law enforcement, the juvenile still may face disciplinary proceedings pursuant to a school district's rules. Karp & Weiss attorneys have represented juveniles at disciplinary proceedings in every school district in the Tucson metropolitan area.

Karp & Weiss attorneys also have represented students charged with misconduct at The University of Arizona, which follows its own rules and procedures in imposing discipline on students. Failure to have an experienced attorney assist a student in the disciplinary process could have serious repercussions for the student's academic career.

Karp & Weiss' family law attorneys also all have significant experience in dealing with issues related to child custody and dependancy.
