Juvenile Law

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.

A juvenile record can damage your child’s future. If your child is charged with a crime in juvenile court, he or she could be adjudicated delinquent if the court finds your child committed the alleged offense.  As a parent, you want to vigorously defend your child’s rights when he or she is accused of a juvenile crime. The Law Office of Georgina K. Hughes represents young people in juvenile delinquency hearings charged with such offenses as:

  • Criminal mischief
  • Traffic violations
  • Assault
  • Truancy
  • Vandalism
  • Drug and alcohol offenses including underage drinking
  • Theft of property, burglary and robbery
  • Weapons violations
  • Probation violations
Regardless of the offense your child is facing, The Law Office of Georgina K. Hughes will make sure his or her rights are protected and he or she is treated fairly.
