Reliable counsel for juvenile matters

Even though juvenile records are sealed from public view, an adjudication of delinquency can seriously damage a minor’s future prospects. The consequences of juvenile offenses, such as school expulsions and juvenile hall detention, can interrupt a child’s education and disrupt his or her upbringing. The Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates represents minors in cases arising in school settings, including:

  • Assault
  • Bullying
  • Sexual harassment

We also have experience with other common juvenile offenses:

  • Burglary of a premises or automobile
  • Credit card misappropriation
  • Evading police, resisting arrest or interfering with police in the performance of their duty
  • Theft
  • Sexting
  • Shoplifting

Juvenile defense lawyers defending status offenses in middle Tennessee

There are certain acts, such as the purchase of tobacco and alcohol products, which are illegal for minors simply because they are minors. These status offenses are every bit as serious in the adjudication of delinquency and can lead to serious consequences. For instance, the legal limit for blood alcohol content when driving is 0.08 percent for adults, but a minor with any discernible blood alcohol is legally under the influence. If a petition has been filed against your child for “baby DUI,” he or she faces a lengthy license suspension and other penalties. A knowledgeable DUI attorney from The Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates can provide the dependable legal counsel your child needs.
