Don't Let Your Child Become A Juvenile Crime Statistic

They're among the highest-stakes criminal cases imaginable.

Even when the underlying offenses are relatively minor, anytime a youth is accused of criminal activity, he or she is at risk of a domino effect of consequences that could haunt him or her well into adulthood.

The Law Office of Thomas J. Lochry, P.C., believes everyone deserves a chance to move beyond allegations of criminal conduct, and nowhere is this truer than in the case of juveniles. With success handling juvenile cases in Texas, the firm can help your child and your family face a scary and intimidating legal system with hope.

A Firm That Handles Juvenile Crimes At Every Stage Of A Case

The firm can help your child who faces criminal charges related to:

  • Alcohol-related offenses, including minor in possession (MIP), minor in consumption (MIC), public intoxication (PI), driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI)
  • Theft-related charges
  • Destruction of property
  • Assault and battery
  • Possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia

At the juvenile level, many diversion programs exist to help youth offenders avoid the worst consequences that can accompany a criminal conviction. The goal of the firm's experienced attorneys is to identify the programs most beneficial to clients and quickly get them the help they need. Of course, when more serious charges are involved and prosecutors are determined to get a conviction, clients have experienced trial lawyers ready to fight criminal charges in court for an acquittal or favorable plea bargain.

Even cases that end in a conviction aren't without hope. People convicted of crimes as minors may be eligible for an expunction to get a criminal record cleared, giving them a fresh start in the eyes of the law.
