Juvenile Law:

Juvenile Law Page: can we update the blurb to read:


Raising a child is difficult. No matter how hard you try, sometimes there is trouble. Juvenile Law is a branch of criminal law that applies to children who are not old enough to be held fully responsible for criminal actions. Juvenile law also involves cases of an unruly child or runaway children.


Most commonly in Tennessee, the age for criminal culpability is 18 years old. However, in some cases, juveniles can be transferred to adult criminal court.


If your child encounters trouble with law enforcement or is experiencing legal trouble, call us first to discuss your options. Your child may need legal representation.
