Juvenile Weapons Offense Lawyers
If your son or daughter brought a gun to school, even if your child did not intend to use the firearm, it is possible that he or she may be charged with a weapons offense. Weapons offenses can carry significant penalties, and a juvenile record can cause lasting problems for the future, including a negative impact on educational and career opportunities. Juvenile weapons offenses can be based not only on guns and firearms, but also on knives, explosives and other items that could be used as weapons.
At the Shapiro Law Firm, in Plano, we evaluate our client’s case in order to determine the most effective means for helping them avoid the worst possible outcome. With nearly 40 years of criminal defense experience in Dallas-Fort Worth and Collin County, including cases involving juvenile offenses, we will vigorously work to reduce your child’s exposure to potential penalties and to protect his or her future.
