Janssen Malloy LLP Supports Humboldt County Teen Court

Janssen Malloy LLP is proud to support Humboldt County Teen Court via financial donations and by mentoring teen court volunteers. Teen Court, a program run through he Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods, is a diversion program for first time juvenile offenders. Teen Court is run entirely by teens who are trained and volunteer to serve as jurors, attorneys, and the judge. Hearings are held biweekly on Thursdays throughout the year in the Humboldt County Superior Court. Sentences for offenders focus on restorative justice, and in addition to including mandatory service as a juror for future Teen Court sessions, often include mandatory participation in community building activities and counseling or tutoring services. Janssen Malloy LLP attorneys Megan Yarnall, David Nims, and Jeff Slack regularly volunteer as mentor attorneys – mentoring and assisting teen attorney volunteers and attending teen court sessions to support their mentees.
