Category: Uncategorized

Posted by

It’s hard to let your children go out on their own. You worry for their safety and want them to stay out of trouble but just never know what will happen. Whether you have a good kid that was in the wrong place at the wrong time or they really screwed up, you still want to ensure they can move past it. Preventing jail time and thousands of dollars in fines is a tough job — having an experienced criminal defense lawyer matters.

Protecting Your Children From Legal Repercussions

DUI, Traffic Accidents & More

Make sure to talk to your teenage and young adult children about what to do if they get into a legal situation. They need to stay calm, silent, and call you, the parents, first. Then, you will call the lawyers who will get to your child before they start to talk. If found guilty, the consequences for the charges below can range from a small fine to thousands of dollars and a lengthy stay in prison.

  • Drinking and driving
  • Traffic accidents
  • Hit-and-run
