Helping to protect your greatest assets with
For many parents, the arrest of a child is a worst-case scenario. If your child has recently been arrested, you probably have many questions: will your child face jail time? How does the juvenile justice system differ from the adult justice system? How will this arrest or conviction change your child’s life or future? An experienced and knowledgeable juvenile defense attorney can answer these questions for you.
Many young people assume that they will not need legal representation when charged with a juvenile offense. In fact, juvenile offenses can carry some serious penalties, which will affect the child’s life now and into the future. Contacting an attorney is one of the best things a parent can do to ensure that their child’s rights and future are protected. A competent attorney can do much more than represent your child in front of the judge. Your attorney can walk your family through the system, explain your options, and listen to you.
If your child has been arrested for any juvenile offense in The Woodlands in Montgomery County, or Houston in Harris County then contact juvenile defense attorney Chris Warren to discuss all the fact and circumstances of your child's case. Never allow your child to speak to any law enforcement officer until after you have spoken to an attorney. Your child can invoke his or her right to remain silent by simply saying "I do not wish to make any statement until after I have spoken to an attorney."
