PROTECTING YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE
When your child is charged with a juvenile offense, you need to understand what happens in the event that he or she is convicted. Depending upon the seriousness of the crime alleged, your child may have difficulty getting accepted to college, receiving financial aid or finding a job. The conviction can make many different aspects of his or her life much more difficult over time.
If your child is facing criminal charges, it is important to avoid a conviction to help prevent problems from arising down the line. At Daniel, Moore, Evans, Biggs, Decker, and Smid, we have significant experience handling juvenile offense cases and have a record of successful results for our clients. Protecting your child’s future and freedom is our highest priority.
Is Your Child In Criminal Trouble?
As experienced juvenile defense lawyers, we will work hard to pursue dismissal of the charges your child is facing. If we are unable to do that, we can seek probation, diversion programs, drug and alcohol counseling and other alternatives to detention in Texas that help to give your child a fair chance at achieving his or her dreams. We help juveniles who are facing criminal charges. Children (17 and under) can be charged with any crime as an adult, including:
- Drug charges
- DWI offenses
- Fighting (assault and battery)
- Stealing money
Children are also vulnerable to criminal charges such as minor in possession of alcohol (underage drinking) and truancy, which adults are not.
Also, it is especially important for a juvenile to maintain a clean criminal record to protect his or her educational and employment prospects. Our attorneys have extensive experience sealing juvenile records to give good kids a chance at a fresh start.
