JUVENILE DEFENSE

Under Texas law, there are different rules in juvenile criminal cases. A minor cannot be interviewed alone. The prison system for juveniles is managed by the Texas Youth Commission. Minors with extended sentences (such as those for murder) will be held by the Texas Youth Commission until age 21, when they are transferred to the adult prison system.

Whatever the charges - from marijuana possession to murder - the minor child needs a lawyer who understands the juvenile justice code, knows the law, and protects the rights of the juvenile. Our juvenile defense lawyer knows that the choices and actions taken now will affect a child's future for years to come and will listen to our client's version of what happened.

We will examine the evidence, interview witnesses, and explore the options for alternative sentencing. We work for dismissal of charges. When that is not feasible, we work for alternative sentencing such as community service. Our juvenile defense attorney handles a full range of charges, including but not limited to:

-Assault, Battery
-Drug Possession
-Drug Sales, Trafficking
-Malicious Mischief
-Murder, Manslaughter
-Robbery, Theft, Burglary
-Sex Crimes, Rape
-Truancy
-Underage Drinking

While juvenile crime often affects the entire family, our client is the minor child accused of a crime. We will protect that client's rights at every step of the juvenile justice process. Those rights include attorney confidentiality and full protection of the minor's rights.
