Juvenile law applies to young children and teenagers—usually defined as less than eighteen years old, depending on the state. Minors accused of breaking the law are processed under a juvenile justice system.

A lawyer who specializes in juvenile law will help minors understand the juvenile justice system and present their defense in juvenile court.
