Angleton Juvenile Law Attorney

Detention Hearings | Criminal Proceedings

In the state of Texas, children under the age of 17 who are involved in illegal activity fall within the jurisdiction of the juvenile courts, with limited exceptions. The juvenile law system differs dramatically from the adult criminal justice system. The penalties are not the same and the children have less constitutional rights than an adult. If your minor child faces juvenile law charges, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests as soon as possible. It is imperative that an aggressive lawyer work to protect your child’s rights.

At the Law Office of Mark B. Jones, we bring more than 18 years of practice experience to individuals in south Texas, including minors being prosecuted in the juvenile courts. We understand that every legal situation is different and take the time to learn the details of your case, as well as your goals, so that we can tailor our representation to get the outcome you want. Attorney Jones has substantial trial experience and can aggressively protect your rights in juvenile court. We also know when it will be in your best interests to seek a plea agreement, and will use our negotiation skills to help you get the best possible outcome.

To set up an appointment, contact us online or call our office at 979-849-8076. Your first consultation is without cost or obligation.
