Minors and juveniles, teens and children, are not adults. Unless an exception applies, the alleged criminal conduct of this group is not handled in the adult criminal courts. Instead, there is a civil lawsuit filed by the State of Texas which must be answered by the juvenile and his/her parent(s) or guardian(s). There are several deadlines and timelines that immediately come into play when these lawsuits are filed, including hearings necessary in detaining the youth, keeping them out of their homes, and placing them in alternative school environments. The impact upon these children and their families is obvious, and it is important that you receive the advice of competent counsel at Lloyd Law Firm when maneuvering through these cases. We are mindful of the family law and criminal law implications in these cases, and we have been recognized by the courts as able attorneys, often receiving appointments in cases where clients are indigent or unable to afford counsel of their own. There is a nature of “numbering” individuals by the State of Texas, but Lloyd Law Firm recognizes the needs of our individual clients and seeks to alleviate the burdens and stresses that accompany this litigation. You need a trusted attorney with you when handling juvenile law, and Lloyd Law Firm can help.
