In Texas, children charged with juvenile crimes risk being committed to the Texas Youth Commission (TYC), a juvenile jail. There is no such thing as a minor criminal charge when a child is charged. Depending on the circumstances, your child may be detained for an extended period of time in the juvenile detention center or in a worst case scenario taken from the home and become a ward of the state at the time of commitment to TYC.

Handling a juvenile law case today is about more than just immediate results. The right juvenile defense will protect the future of your child. You want a lawyer who understands Texas juvenile law and can protect your child from whatever charges he or she faces:

  • Murder
  • Burglary
