JUVENILE LAW

Section Title

At Walker Law, we provide compassionate and effective legal representation for juveniles and their families in Ohio. We understand that facing legal issues as a juvenile can be a challenging experience that can affect the future of both the juvenile and their family, but we are here to guide you through the process with care and understanding.

Juvenile Law Services We Offer

We provide a range of legal services in the area of juvenile law to help you navigate the legal system, including:

Juvenile Delinquency

If your child has been accused of committing a delinquent act, including offenses such as theft, drug offenses, sexual assault, and more, we are experienced in working with the juvenile justice system and can help minimize the consequences of the charges. We understand the importance of defending the rights and interests of juveniles in these cases, and we will work tirelessly to protect their future.

Juvenile Expungement

We can also help juveniles and their families with sealing, expunging, or modifying their juvenile records. This can be crucial for future employment, education, and other opportunities. We understand that mistakes made in the past should not hinder a juvenile's future, and we are committed to helping juveniles move forward from their past mistakes.

Abuse, Neglect, Dependency

We represent parents and guardians in cases involving allegations of abuse, neglect, and dependency by Child Protective Services (CPS). These cases can be emotionally challenging, and we understand the complexities involved in such cases. Our goal is to provide our clients with the legal support and guidance they need to protect their children's best interests and to bring children back home as quickly as possible.

Contributing to Unruliness or Delinquency

We also represent parents and guardians who have been accused of contributing to the acts committed by juveniles in their custody. Under Ohio Law, contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a juvenile is a criminal offense, and individuals found guilty of this offense may face legal consequences. The specific laws and penalties related to contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile can vary depending on the circumstances of the case and the age of the minor involved. We can help guide you through this process and maintain your freedom.

We will work to build a strong defense strategy, explore diversionary programs, negotiate with prosecutors, and present compelling arguments in court to achieve the most favorable outcome for your child.

 

3. Can my child's juvenile record be expunged?

 

In certain circumstances, it may be possible to expunge a juvenile record in Ohio. Expungement allows for the sealing or removal of a juvenile's court records from public view. The eligibility criteria and process for expungement vary depending on the nature of the offense and the individual's subsequent behavior.

4. What rights does my child have in the juvenile justice system?

 

Juveniles have rights protected by the Constitution and Ohio law, including the right to legal representation, the right to remain silent, the right to confront witnesses, the right to due process, and the right to a fair trial. We are well-versed in juvenile rights and will ensure that your child's rights are protected throughout the legal process.

 

5. Can my child be tried as an adult in Ohio?

 

In certain circumstances, a juvenile may be subject to transfer or certification to adult court. The decision to transfer a case to adult court is based on various factors, such as the seriousness of the offense, the age of the juvenile, and the juvenile's prior record. We can evaluate your child's case, explain the potential consequences, and advocate for the most appropriate legal approach to protect your child's rights.
