Cries for help are often muted in juvenile justice

Some people hear the term "juvenile justice" and think that it relates to having to deal with young, misguided people who don't have a chance. They might think that all of these juveniles are "lost causes," but this is a tragic misconception. Many juveniles who are involved in the juvenile justice system don't have to be a "lost cause," but they do need to be given tools to make the changes necessary to move into adulthood as productive citizens.

No juvenile criminal justice matter is considered a small deal

Juvenile criminal matters are often thought of as minor offenses, but this can't be the thought that parents have when their child is facing these issues. Parents need to realize that when a child is involved in the justice system, he or she needs help getting back on the right path. This is the goal of the juvenile justice system.

Expunctions and non-disclosure orders in Texas

A criminal conviction in Texas can have far-reaching consequences. Not only may you have to do jail time, pay huge fines and legal fees, but it could cause problems in other aspects of your life. For example, you could lose your job, have problems finding other employment or even run into issues trying to rent an apartment. Unfortunately, a conviction is not the only thing that will appear of your records. An arrest without a subsequent conviction might also cause you some issues in the future.
