Juvenile law cases typically fall into two areas. One area involves issues with the children such as delinquency, while the other deals with parental problems when the Department of Children services petitions the court for removal of the children from their home. Regardless of the juvenile matter with which you and your family are facing, The Law Office of Georgina K. Hughes can provide legal advice and guidance to help you maneuver though unfamiliar proceedings.
