The juvenile justice system varies greatly from the adult system. The focus in the juvenile system is rehabilitation whereas the focus in the adult criminal justice system is punishment. But, that does not mean that you can take a juvenile charge lightly. Even if you are charged as a juvenile, in certain circumstances, the State can move to have the juvenile tried as an adult. This is called certification to adult court. A criminal defense attorney must challenge certification. If child is certified to adult court, they will face the same punishment as an adult.
Another aspect of juvenile criminal court is Extended Juvenile jurisdiction, or E.J.J. In certain circumstances, a prosecutor can extend an adult sentence over a juvenile even though the juvenile is under 18.

Lauren is fantastic. She is dedicated, takes the time to get to know her clients and their case. She guided me through the entire situation start to finish, and was boots on the ground there for me every step of the way. In addition to representing me Lauren inspired me to make the most out of life no matter the circumstances, and that finding yourself on the wrong end of a mistake doesn’t define you. I interviewed four attorneys before signing with Lauren and can confirm she is above the rest in every way.
Lauren Campoli was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was she able to defend me but her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. She demonstrated open communication and clearly explained the unfamiliar process with me. My family and I are eternally grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Ms. Campoli without reservation.
Lauren took my case knowing that it would have a long time frame. She was consistently responsive and helpful during the 1+ year it took to get wrap up the criminal charges. I was clear from the beginning that I wanted to take it to trial, as I was innocent of the charges. Lauren never pushed for me to accept a plea or settle my case based on principle. She was completely ready to defend me all the way to the end. I am so grateful to have had a strong yet caring advocate throughout this difficult process. My case was very delicate due to a traumatizing related sexual assault and I am confident that hiring Lauren was the best decision I could have made.
I’d like to recommend Lauren Campoli because she is very professional and will go above and beyond in your case. I had 2 previous attorneys before her and they were only doing enough and I remember when coming to her I told her “ I am not looking for just a great attorney , I am looking for the best and after doing some research and working with her she clearly is the best and that has been shown in all of my court hearings how she has defended me. I thank you for all your hard work Lauren and wish you the best in the future

Do not have a second thought when looking for an incredible criminal defense attorney!! I cannot thank her enough for her dedication and hard work. I truly felt cared about with Lauren Campoli as my attorney and I have no doubt she will put in all the hard work for every case she handles.
I have nothing but great things to say about Lauren. She responds to emails and calls in a heartbeat! (Whenever she isn’t in the courtroom) Lauren did the impossible and got me amazing results that I couldn’t even imagine. I have full confidence in her ability, and would recommend her to anybody who is looking for an amazing lawyer. She’s very easy to talk to and always has her clients best interest at heart. She’s down to earth and always seems to find a way to get the results that she needs, she is not scared to speak up in court to defend her clients!
Overall I was EXTREMELY satisfied with Lauren’s service as my criminal defense attorney.
We called Lauren in an absolute panic about our son’s imminent court date. He was being charged with a felony at only 14. Lauren reassured us that she could help reduce the charge and she completely came through for us! We are so thankful for her advise and help the entire way through the process. She was amazing, I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal assistance with a criminal matter.
