Juvenile law is a specialty that deals with the well-being and/or actions of individuals who are not yet adults. In Georgia, any person under the age of 17 is considered a minor or juvenile. Juvenile law encompasses three different categories related to minors including juveniles who have been accused of committing a crime, those who have been abused or neglected by their parents, and those who have been accused of a status offense. A status offense is when a child violates a law specific to their age group such as skipping school or purchasing tobacco.

We know how devastating it can be for a child who has made mistakes to face charges for their actions in court and we want to be here to help you the process each step of the way. Our attorneys will also fight tenaciously for the rights of children who have suffered neglect or abuse from their parents, and look for a situation that will enable them to have a brighter future.
