Juvenile Delinquency Lawyer

Santa Barbara Juvenile Deliquency Attorney

Nothing is more worrisome to a parent than having their child get in legal trouble. Parents want the best for their children and to help them when something goes wrong. Being accused of a crime when you are under 18 can have a devastating effect on your child’s reputation, livelihood, and overall well-being.

It is crucial that a Juvenile case is handled with extreme care and caution by an experienced Juvenile defense lawyer. Whether your child is guilty of a crime or was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, you will need a committed and experienced Santa Barbara juvenile crime attorney to guide you through the legal process and aggressively defend your child’s case.

Can You Defend A Juvenile Accused Of A Crime?

There are many ways to handle juvenile cases and it is important to be represented by a juvenile crimes lawyer who has a proven track record for getting the best results.

If this is the first offense, the courts in Santa Barbara County have programs designed for certain first-time offenders which will ultimately result in dismissal of your child’s juvenile charges. Your child may also be eligible to seal or expunge their Juvenile case. You do not want your child starting adulthood with a criminal record.

Mr. McMurray was my lawyer when I was arrested by the SB County Sheriff’s department. I won’t go into details, but I was in serious trouble… Mr. McMurray was truthful and helpful through the entire process. I ended up avoiding jail time all together and I haven’t looked back since.  I can happily say he got me a second chance.


I couldn’t recommend Elvia highly enough. When the legal system left me hurt and confused, she fought fiercely and got me results.

Elvia believes in what she does and her passion shines through in her work. She couldn’t have done a better job for me and I know she’ll fight just as successfully for you.


Mr. McMurray did an amazing job helping my son through a series of negotiations. He researched the case, attended meetings, and supported my son one hundred percent. He had a great rapport with my son and helped him feel less anxious about the proceedings. I recommend Mr. McMurray wholeheartedly.

Past Client

In a field that many people don’t know much about until circumstances force them to seek legal help, Elvia looks out for her client’s interests above her own. She responded quickly to my concerns and explained everything to me in a manner which I understood. Elvia is trustworthy and honest. I highly recommend Elvia!
