When juveniles end up in the justice system, they are at risk of starting down the wrong road. Juveniles who begin a pattern of criminal behavior while young are more likely to end up facing incarceration as adults. Fortunately, Missouri’s juvenile justice system is designed to prevent that from happening.

If your child is facing juvenile delinquency charges, this is a critical juncture in his or her life. It can be a positive turning point if handled correctly.

Experienced and knowledgeable legal guidance is never more important than when your child’s future is at stake.
