Juvenile Criminal Defense
If your child or a young loved one has been accused of a crime, it is absolutely imperative that you seek legal help. Baseluos Law Firm (BLF) aggressively defends juveniles in the San Antonio and greater Bexar County areas. The Bexar County juvenile justice system is a refreshing attempt to try to treat and rehabilitate an offending child without the overarching emphasis on punishing the child as is so common under the adult San Antonio criminal defense system.
BLF provides juvenile criminal defense at the highest levels, because we understand the implications of a juvenile criminal record. The implications of a juvenile criminal record can be far reaching , affecting your child’s ability to obtain a job or receive federal loans for school. If the firm cannot get the charges dismissed, then we work to get the juvenile records sealed, which does not automatically happen.
Juvenile charges do not necessarily have to result in adjudication. The firm will work with the Bexar County probation officers to put your child in the best position for a favorable disposition, such as a deferred adjudication where the charges are dismissed. The firm works with pastors and rehabilitation centers to try to achieve a plan that fosters the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual development of your child. Is that not what your child needs during these critical moments in their young adult life? The key is rehabilitation of the juvenile offender – something that the adult San Antonio criminal justice system neglects.
Baseluos Law Firm will safeguard the constitutional rights of your child during adjudication hearings, and we will take the extra steps to work with prosecutors and probation officers to achieve an outcome that is truly in the best interests of your child. There has been a flood of prosecutions of juveniles in the Municipal and Justice Courts of Bexar County mainly for violations of the schools’ code of conduct. It is absolutely critical to prevent juveniles from being convicted in the municipal and justice courts, because those records are open to the public and are not automatically sealed.
If your child has been charged with a criminal offense, please do not delay. Contact a juvenile criminal defense lawyer in San Antonio Texas and greater Bexar County today.
