Attorney Providing Skilled Drug Offense and Sexual Assault Defense

My deep understanding of the juvenile justice system as a whole allows me to effectively serve the needs of my juvenile clients. I will guide my juvenile clients through the entire process. If your child has been arrested, neither you nor your child should speak with the police before hiring a qualified juvenile defense attorney to represent your child during questioning. In detention hearings, through the promotion of diversion programs or alternative placement options, and at every stage of the case, Terri Daniel, Attorney at Law, PLLC, will advocate vigorously on behalf of my juvenile client.

The earlier you hire a qualified attorney in a juvenile case, the more options you have. Diversion programs allow juveniles to do an informal probation in exchange for a dismissal of criminal charges. The juvenile justice system is geared toward rehabilitation. A psychological evaluation may determine that a juvenile is in need of counseling, in-patient treatment, or out-patient treatment. In these cases, I may be able to prevent a case from being filed or negotiate for lesser charges or a deferred sentence.

At certain ages, there is a possibility for a juvenile to be certified as an adult. Performing a thorough investigation and speaking with the district attorney early on may prevent this.

In Texas, each county handles juvenile crime very differently. If your child has been accused of a juvenile offense, you need an attorney who practices locally and understands the local detention facility, the local judges, and the way laws are usually applied to juveniles in that county. I am proficient in the unique rules and regulations that apply to juvenile cases in Collin County and Denton County.
