Dallas Juvenile Crime Attorney

About Juvenile Crimes in Texas

After the arrest of a child, you will need as much information and legal guidance as you can obtain to help you navigate the legal system successfully. At Holland & Martin, PC, we understand that you will likely have a multitude of questions that need to be answered by competent attorneys.

Our Dallas criminal defense lawyers can answer the following questions, among others:

  • What step should I take next?
  • Will my child go to juvenile hall?
  • Will he or she be taken away from me?

We have 25 years of combined experience pursuing defense options on behalf of our clients. Take advantage of the skillful assistance we offer to resolve your child's case and to pursue the least harsh sentence possible or to potentially have charges dismissed or reduced.

Cases involving defendants who are between the ages of 10 and 16 will be handled by the juvenile court. Juvenile cases involve civil and criminal issues. The Texas juvenile courts treat offenders as individuals who are in need of rehabilitation, rather than imposing criminal punishment. If found guilty, a child's record will reflect that he or she was considered to have engaged in delinquent conduct, not that he or she was convicted of a crime.

How can I protect my child's future?

As a parent, you are likely aware that a juvenile crime can greatly impact your child's future as a result of the punishments that are imposed by the state of Texas. The state adopted the Progressive Sanctions Model, which is set to assign punishment for levels one to seven based on the severity of the offense committed. You will want to take immediate action to obtain legal guidance from our firm to challenge the prosecutor's case against your child. We offer compassionate, professional, and attentive representation. Our firm can keep you up to date as you navigate the legal process involved.
