Juvenile Crime Lawyers in Houston, TX

Protecting Minors’ Rights & Futures

Growing up and facing adulthood is difficult for any child and teenagers often get into trouble for making reckless, immature choices. When these choices lead to criminal charges, such as shoplifting, traffic violations, possession of marijuana or other controlled substances, arson, gang violence, and even murder, your child's entire future could be ruined because of one moment of ill decision.

For more information on juvenile offenses, definitions, and penalties, see Texas Family Code, Title 3. Juvenile Justice Code.

Advocating for Rehabilitation Instead of Incarcaration

Recently, juvenile prosecution is experiencing tremendous growth, and the State of Texas is now more willing to try juveniles as adults. The ultimate hope of the juvenile courts and justice system is that young people can be rehabilitated. Prosecuting a juvenile as an adult takes away that chance for rehabilitation by forcing them into situations with more serious consequences.

At Thiessen Law Firm, we never forget that a child is just that: a child. A criminal record – even a juvenile one – often harms a child far more than it benefits the state. When you work with a Houston juvenile crime lawyer at our firm, we will use all of the weapons in our arsenal to fight for a fair outcome in your or your child’s case. After all, the future is at stake and you should not have to settle for anything other than top-notch defense representation.
