Protecting Your Child From A Conviction
It is every parent’s worst-case scenario.
You get home from work. You were expecting your child to be home, but they are not there. Instead, you get a call from the police; they tell you that you need to come to the station and pick up your child. Your child has been arrested.
Kids make mistakes. They should not have to suffer for those mistakes longer than necessary. No one wants their kids to interact with the law, and being in juvenile detention raises your child’s chances for:
- Future criminal convictions
- Dropping out of high school
- Drug and alcohol abuse
As a parent, you want to protect your child. The best way to protect them is to hire a lawyer.
