AREAS OF PRACTICE

JUVENILE DEPENDENCY

When families are involved with the Department of Family and Children Services (DFACS) due to allegations of abuse or neglect , the parents and the child will need legal presentation to guide them and represent their best interests.

We help you fight for your rights.

JUVENILE DELINQUENCY

Children under the age of 17 that are ccharged with crimes, as juveniles are part of a system that is very different from adult court.  You need an experienced attorney that is familiar with juvenile law and can assist your child with the best possible outcome.
