Criminal Defense Attorney Chattanooga

Chattanooga Juvenile Crimes Attorney

Childhood is a time of learning rules and correct behavior. Juveniles don't always stop to think before they act. Generally childhood mistakes and wrong doing don't have serious repercussions. As they grow older, rebellion or peer pressure can cause them to run afoul of the law. At times like this a parent may be uncertain about what to do. A Chattanooga criminal defense attorney can help you to understand your child's rights and legal situation. Attorney John McDougal takes the time to explain everything, including all possible options which will help you to make an informed decision.

Depending on your child’s case and the severity of the crime, he or she could face being charged as an adult. Parents long to protect their children, and I know that you are no different. You want the best possible representation for your child because, and I cannot be any plainer than this, you do not want an inexperienced attorney handling your child’s future.
