Practice Areas

The areas in which we are preeminent include:
Juvenile Law

 

Juvenile delinquency law deals with crimes and offenses committed by children who are referred to as minors. If your minor child has been charged with a crime in juvenile court, the law requires that he or she be represented by an attorney. Many juvenile cases also involve minor children who are alleged to have been neglected and/or abused. These cases almost always involve Children Services as well as local law enforcement. Standing accused in a juvenile courtroom is a frightening and stressful event. Our firm will assist you in navigating the juvenile justice system, and provide a zealous defense in order to minimize the impact on your child's life.

 

 

Child Support

Child support is a monetary payment that a noncustodial parent pays toward the living expenses of their children. The amount of child support is based primarily on the noncustodial parent’s net income, although factors such as medical insurance costs, school expenses and living arrangements can be considered.
