Aggressive Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney
When a minor between the ages of 10 and 17 is arrested, their case will typically be handled by a juvenile court. If your child has been charged or detained for a juvenile offense, it is important to speak with a Houston Criminal Defense Attorney about your child’s charges and how they could potentially impact your child’s future. The juvenile criminal justice system is geared toward rehabilitation, but you should make sure that you hire a Houston juvenile defense attorney that is knowledgeable about the juvenile criminal justice system and will fight to protect child’s rights. David Overhuls is a former juvenile prosecutor and will use that experience to obtain the best possible outcome for your child, including punishments that may allow your child’s record to be sealed.
