Juvenile Justice in Milwaukee

If trouble with the law involves a juvenile, an attorney from Rypel Law Office, LLC can help you work through the issues. At Rypel Law Office, LLC, our juvenile defense lawyers have experience in juvenile court and are dedicated to making sure that every juvenile case is properly handled.

Juveniles have no right to a jury trial. Every case will be tried by the judge. You need to have an experienced attorney help you in exercising your right to substitution. This is your only opportunity to have any say in who the juvenile law judge will be.

Our attorneys can direct you and provide you with the information you need to contest a juvenile charge. Juvenile defense is more complicated because juveniles are not afforded the same protections as adult criminals. You need to make sure that your rights are protected by an experienced juvenile defense attorney.

By contacting an attorney right away you can increase your chances of keeping the case out of adult court. Our attorneys can help you protect your particular interests as juvenile.

We can assist you with any charge brought against a juvenile and, later, assist the juvenile with possible expungement of those charges.

If you are a juvenile or your child is facing criminal charges, it is important to get the assistance of an experienced juvenile defense attorney as soon as possible. Steps taken early on in the proceedings can affect the outcome very significantly. At Rypel Law Office, LLC, we are experienced in getting our clients into first offender programs and protecting them from more severe outcomes.

A juvenile felony conviction ("adjudication") can carry serious lifelong consequences and follow them though their life. If you are a juvenile facing sex offenses charges, you may have to report yourself as a sex offender for the rest of your life. We can help you reduce or defeat charges and if possible get your record expunged or sealed.


If you have been charged with a misdemeanor and have turned 21 since then, an experienced criminal defense attorney can negotiate to get your record expunged.

Our attorneys can also assist you in getting your life back on track and can direct you to appropriate drug counselors, psychologists, and a wealth of other people who are committed to assisting juveniles in moving forward.
