Protect Your Child’s Future From Juvenile Charges
In the past, it was extremely rare for the police to get involved in a school fight or even drug or alcohol possession. Now, police intervention is an everyday occurrence in most schools, including middle schools and elementary schools.
At Law Offices of Charles T. Ganz, I have handled juvenile cases in the justice system and have also helped parents in dealing with Texas school districts through these matters. My firm has also taken cases in multiple schools and counties in the Greater Houston area. No two counties or school districts have the same process or procedures surrounding these incidents, so I tailor my representation to suit the laws of your location. I also have extensive experience with school removal proceedings.
What To Know About Juvenile Justice
As soon as your child’s school calls law enforcement, you should call a lawyer with experience in juvenile defense. A child’s future is dependent upon keeping his or her name clear. Juvenile records and school disciplinary records, even a seemingly minor offense involving alcohol or controlled substances, can impact what high school or college students are allowed or eligible to attend, along with much more in their future.
Criminal charges involving minors are different from those involving adults. Rather than punish children, the consequences are meant to rehabilitate them. But many times, the penalties can be harsher than we imagine. It is critical to take a proactive and aggressive stance to ensure your child has a bright future.
Act Quickly To Safeguard Your Child’s Rights
Often, schools and police officers will take extreme measures to try to punish the child, but this is not the purpose of the juvenile justice system.
