Juvenile Offenses Attorney Serving Hamilton County, TN

If your child or teen was arrested and charged with a juvenile offense in Tennessee, you probably have numerous concerns about the effect it will have on the rest of his or her life — and rightly so. Delinquency on your child’s record can haunt his or her future, affecting college scholarships and student loans, job opportunities and much more.

However, there is good news. Retaining a juvenile defense lawyer to fight the charges can often make a valuable difference. At the Law Office of Sam Byrd in Chattanooga, I will explain everything you need to know about keeping your child’s reputation untarnished and his or her future bright. My mission as a criminal defense attorney is to protect your child in every possible way. Call me at 423-304-6827 for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation.

Addressing Everything From Shoplifting To Underage Drinking

I provide knowledgeable legal counsel and dedicated representation in cases that involve the following offenses, among others:

  • Shoplifting and other theft crimes
  • Assault
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Drug possession
  • Underage drinking or drunk driving
  • Bullying
  • Sending sexually explicit text messages (“sexting”)

Don’t Let Your Child Be Tried As An Adult

If your child was charged with a serious felony, the prosecution can request that he or she be tried as an adult. This means that he or she could face adult penalties. Don’t let this happen without a fight. As your lawyer, I can request a transfer hearing and work to prove that your child’s case should stay in juvenile court.
