Addison Criminal Defense Attorney
Let Us Defend Your Child’s Future
If you are a parent whose child has been charged with a juvenile crime, you may not know what that entails. The state of Texas considers all people under the age of 17 to be a juvenile, and the Texas Family Code governs the Juvenile Justice Code that regulates handling such crimes. The laws regarding juvenile offenders tend to be less severe than those pertaining to adults, but it doesn’t mean you should allow a conviction to occur.
Talk to one of our skilled Addison criminal defense lawyers about your case as soon as possible. Scott H. Palmer, P.C. has the knowledge and resources to explain what your child might be facing in terms of punishments, including whether he or she might be tried as an adult.
Our firm can handle some of the following juvenile criminal charges:
- Criminal mischief
- Drug possession
- Evading arrest

- Sexual offenses
- Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
