Protecting Minors Facing Criminal Charges

For any crime that an adult can commit, the same could be done by a child. However, the justice system for minors is more focused on rehabilitation than punishment. In fact, cases involving minors are tried in a separate court system entirely. Because of this, you can't trust just any attorney to defend your child — you need one who is well-versed in juvenile criminal defense.

Hensley Law Office has decades of experience practicing law in western Missouri, and understands that this is a challenging time for your child and your family. We can defend your child in virtually any criminal case, including:

  • Underage drinking
  • Drug charges
  • Drug paraphernalia possession
  • Traffic violations
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft and burglary
  • Assault
  • Weapon charges
  • Sex crimes

Our lawyers put your child's future first, vigorously defending minors before juvenile courts throughout Missouri.

We Understand What's At Stake

One small charge can leave a permanent mark on your child's future. Minors may not understand the full consequences of their actions, and the legal system allows flexibility to account for this. With experienced representation, you can minimize the effects that any potentially reckless actions may have on the rest of their lives.

To discuss the full scope of your child's charges, schedule a free consultation with our attorneys at Hensley Law Office.
