Doing Everything in our Power for Your Child
Many parents do not realize that the juvenile justice system in the state of Texas is separate and quite different from the adult criminal system. The Texas Juvenile Court System is designed to give minors a chance to rehabilitate and become a contributing member to society before incarceration. This means there is no criminal court for minors in the state of Texas. Instead, when you are called before a juvenile court staff or probation officer, you may not know what to do or if you even need an attorney present. The truth is, however, that your child’s best chance requires they have qualified and experienced legal representation to be prepared for any possible occurrence or outcome. With an experienced and knowledgeable juvenile defense team like the Huston Firm, you can rest assured knowing every opportunity to protect your child’s future that emerges will be acted upon during the hearing.
