Representing Those Charged With Juvenile Crimes

Every child makes mistakes. Sometimes that means being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people. They may have simply just made a bad decision when they didn’t think through the potential consequences of their actions. Regardless of the facts of the case, it is important to look toward the future, so that this one simple choice doesn’t ruin your child’s life forever.

At Peter & Lanzillo, PLLC, in Plano, we’re here to fight for your child when he or she has been charged with a juvenile crime. We are committed to providing you sound advice at each step in the process. Our attorneys work as a team, and you will be able to contact us for any questions you may have along the way. We’re committed to doing what’s best for your child.

Focused On The Big Picture

Texas takes a pretty firm stance on juvenile crimes in the state. Kids facing charges could see some fairly significant penalties depending upon the offense in question. Some of the various juvenile crimes we handle include, but are not limited to:

  • Minor in possession of alcohol or drugs
  • Underage DUI/DWI
  • Theft
  • Shoplifting

In addition to these matters, we also handle cases involving more serious charges, such as sex crimes or charges where your child may be tried as an adult.

The most important thing that you and your child can do in this situation is to take these charges seriously. If you simply enter a plea without any consideration of the consequences, your child may have to live with a lifetime of missed opportunities due to a past conviction. Before you do anything – which includes talking with police – make sure to consult one of our attorneys to begin building a comprehensive defense.
