Juvenile Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

The impact that a criminal record can have on a child as he or she gets older is considerable. Implications can arise for future employment, housing, education and other opportunities. In addition to the penalties that a juvenile may face for a drug allegation, the impact on the future can be the most daunting part of a juvenile offense.

It is important to do whatever is possible to maintain your child's ability to get certain jobs, rent an apartment or get student loans for college. At the Shapiro Law Firm, in Plano, our lawyers have nearly 40 years of experience representing people charged with felony and misdemeanor drug crimes in Texas, including juvenile crimes. Talk with us as soon as possible about how we can defend you or your child against serious juvenile offenses.

A juvenile may be charged with virtually any criminal offense an adult may be charged with, including:

  • Drug possession, even possession of a small amount of drugs
  • Distribution of controlled substances without a prescription
  • Delivery of drugs
  • Possession of drugs in a drug-free zone
  • Assault
  • Statutory sexual assault
  • Indecent exposure
  • Sexting
  • Other sex crimes

Our firm thoroughly investigates every arrest and the events that led up to it, including the gathering of evidence, to determine whether your rights or the rights of your child were violated during the process. If so, we will fight to get the evidence dismissed.

We will also focus on getting the record sealed as soon as possible so that the record does not stay with him or her for a lifetime.
