He is joined by defense lawyer Tom O'Connell, who served as the criminal district attorney in Collin County for 29 years. Our criminal defense team's firsthand understanding of how the other side works helps them defend juveniles accused of:
- Drug crimes
- Underage drinking and DUIs
- Shoplifting, theft
- Sex offenses - such as sexting and statutory rape
We work to keep juvenile charges out of adult court. When possible, we fight for a reduction in charges or dropping of the charges. Our law firm includes experienced trial attorneys who aggressively challenge evidence obtained against juveniles. If charges cannot be dropped, we negotiate with prosecutors to place the juvenile in a diversion program.Pursuing Rehabilitative Solutions
In Texas, juvenile court encourages rehabilitation over punishment as much as possible. Our law firm's juvenile criminal defense attorneys consult social service agencies and the court to identity positive rehabilitative solutions. For example, if the child struggled with underage drinking, we look into a substance abuse program. We have also made suggestions for juveniles to meet with counselors or participate in volunteer opportunities.Schedule a Free Initial Consultation
