When a child is charged with a crime, it affects the entire family. This is especially true in cases where a minor has been charged with a serious criminal offense, such as a sex crime, assault, or even murder. Whether your child has committed a crime, been wrongfully accused of a criminal act, or simply made a mistake, the guidance of a juvenile defense lawyer can help you get through this difficult time. Juvenile crimes law varies from state to state, but a lawyer can help you understand your child’s legal options.

I have used Joseph Russell for both criminal and civil cases over the years and I have been pleased by the outcomes of every case. On the criminal cases the charges were dismissed or he got me the absolute minimum sentence allowed, and on the civil case I was being sued by the state of texas and Mr Russell got the amount down to the lowest possible and made sure I was given credit for payments I had made already but never showed up as being done so. I would highly recommend Mr. Russell for any legal issues in Kaufman county.
