Defending Juveniles Accused Of Crimes

If your child or teen was arrested and charged with a juvenile offense in Tennessee, you probably have numerous concerns about the effect it will have on the rest of his or her life — and rightly so.

Addressing Everything From Shoplifting To Underage Drinking

I provide knowledgeable legal counsel and dedicated representation in cases that involve the following offenses, among others:

  • Shoplifting and other theft crimes
  • Assault
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Drug possession
  • Underage drinking or drunk driving
  • Bullying
  • Sending sexually explicit text messages ("sexting")

Don't Let Your Child Be Tried As An Adult

If your child was charged with a serious felony, the prosecution can request that he or she be tried as an adult. This means that he or she could face adult penalties. Don't let this happen without a fight. As your lawyer, I can request a transfer hearing and work to prove that your child's case should stay in juvenile court.
