In Juvenile Justice, The Stakes Are High

If you are the parent or guardian of a juvenile who faces criminal charges, you probably feel terrified. You worry about the future of the child you love.

As an experienced defense attorney, I will serve as an advocate and guide for you in the juvenile justice system. I am Phil Morin. At my law firm, Phil Morin Law Firm, I have spent 16 years defending the rights of minors in criminal cases.

I defend juveniles charged with a wide range of offenses, including:

  • Underaged drinking
  • Drunk driving charges
  • Drug offenses
  • Shoplifting and other forms of theft
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Vandalism
  • Assault and battery
  • Sex offenses

When you work with me, I will strive tirelessly to help the juvenile avoid a conviction, get them into diversionary treatment and minimize the impact of the justice system on them.

What To Know About The Juvenile System In Texas

The Texas juvenile court system is supposed to focus on rehabilitation instead of incarceration. However, it still requires an experienced defense to protect a child from juvenile detention. In some cases, the court may even try to prosecute a minor as an adult. Fortunately, many prosecutors and judges are willing to offer diversionary sentences to give a young person second chance.

As a former prosecutor for Brazoria County, I understand both sides of the justice system. I know how to work with your county’s Juvenile Justice Department to negotiate a plea deal, attain the lightest sentence available or even get your child’s charges dismissed completely.
