Our Opelika Attorneys Work to Give Juveniles a Second Chance
Alabama lawyers help minors avoid the adult criminal justice system
Hand Law Firm helps juveniles and their families understand their legal options. When you work with us, you can be confident that knowledgeable and professional juvenile law attorneys — who understand the Alabama juvenile system and the state’s courts — are on your side. We have represented juveniles in state and federal courts in a wide array of juvenile criminal and non-criminal cases, which have included:
- Underage drinking
- Theft crimes
- Drug offenses
- Criminal trespass
- Assault and battery
- Parental neglect of a minor
- CHIPS (Children in Need of Protection or Services)
- At-Risk Youth (ARY)
Our experience enables us to anticipate how judges, Child Protective Services (CPS) case workers and other attorneys may approach your case.
Protecting future educational and employment prospects
If your child is being accused of, charged with or investigated in connection with a criminal offense, time is of the essence. Delay can cause valuable legal advantages to be lost while you are waiting to secure legal representation. We understand the severity of the situation and work diligently to ensure that your child’s mistakes don’t follow him or her into adulthood. Our wealth of trial experience gives us a thorough understanding of the defense tactics to which juvenile courts and judges respond favorably. We also pursue sentencing options to prevent a youth from acquiring a criminal record that can limit future prospects.
Your personal guide and advocate
Our lawyers are aware of the sensitive nature of juvenile cases. Because we truly care about our clients, we work to ensure your case is handled confidentially and discreetly. Whether you are accused of child abuse, neglect, or family violence or are looking for legal help regarding the guardianship of a minor, our experienced attorneys are able advocates and guides.
