Schools are bound by federal law to meet the needs of all of their students, regardless if the student has a learning disability, behavioral problems, or other condition requiring accommodation. Knowing whether your child qualifies for an Individualized Education Plan or a 504 plan is merely step one. Ensuring that your child's plan is effective and being implemented requires advocating for your child to the school and knowing how the process works from the inside.
A delinquency charge is something that would be called a crime if it had been committed by a person who was at least 18 years old. A misdemeanor conviction will follow a juvenile until he is 29 years old. A felony conviction may have life-long consequences. An effective attorney knows the juvenile justice system offers unique opportunities to allow alleged offenders to avoid having a conviction on their records and will fight for the best outcome.
A guardian ad litem is a court appointed attorney who advocates for your child's best interests. Guardians speak for those who cannot speak for themselves by investigating a child's life, home, school, and family. Often times children are caught between parents and are too afraid to express what they really want for fear of hurting their parents or of being hurt by their parents. Our attorneys pride themselves on the work they do as guardians because of the lasting implications it has.
