Protect Your Child In Juvenile Court Proceedings

Although the juvenile court system focuses more on rehabilitation and less on punishment compared to the adult system, juvenile charges are still extremely serious. In many cases, a child makes one major mistake and if the juvenile proceedings are not handled carefully, the ramifications could hinder the child's potential opportunities for a lifetime.

Status Offenses And Criminal Charges

Some violations are age-specific. Underage drinking and underage driving are prime examples of this type of violation. These are called status offenses.

Of course, minors can also face charges that are crimes regardless of age, including drug crimes, violent crimes, drunk driving charges, sex crime charges, vandalism and other charges. Depending on the severity of the crime, the criminal history of the child and other factors, the court can choose to hear the case in adult criminal court. MBK can provide SSi legal help, representation for drug crimes and other unlawful occurences.

Our Clarksville juvenile court law firm will fight aggressively to minimize the penalties and avoid adult court if possible. We will help you get the best results possible through our effective juvenile court, domestic and SSI legal help.
