Our children are our future and therefore our most precious assets. Therefore it is important that we do everything we can to provide them the best opportunities to grow, thrive, and be successful. However, there are times when children find themselves in situations while in school, or facing charges in Juvenile Court. Our Memphis Juvenile Attorneys appear in Shelby County Juvenile Court as well as other courts in West Tennessee representing juveniles in Court as well as in administrative proceedings including school disciplinary matters. Juveniles can face serious consequences when charged with delinquency matters meaning it is critical for you to hire an experienced Juvenile Attorney to protect your child. In some instances, children face felony level charges sometimes subjecting the child to a "transfer" hearing, meaning that they can face being tried as an adult. We know that this case be a very stressful reality, and accordingly, this requires an all encompassing collaborative approach with the parents or guardian in working to protect our children.
Other juvenile matters may involve custody, adoption, dependency and neglect or support matters, which we have experience to handle as well. These types of cases often center around fact specific determinations and a juvenile, circuit or chancery court determining what is in the "best interest" of the child. Our approach is to provide comprehensive advice to our clients prior to engaging in custody or related litigation as it is important that our clients fully understand the nature of the process. If you or someone you know requires the services of a Juvenile or Custody Attorney, please contact our office for a consultation.
