Let’s Sit Down Together
At the Law Firm of Kevin Stuart Cavanaugh, I work with families who face legal difficulty when a minor child has been charged with a crime. Misdemeanors and felonies can have serious implications for your child’s future, in terms of both education and career choices. Remember, juvenile charges in Kansas can now involve a jury in a more formal criminal atmosphere. This situation can usually be overcome with a more aggressive posture on behalf of the child.
If your child has gotten into trouble with the law, I encourage you to bring your family to my firm. Together we can discuss the issue and plan a course of action. In my 25 years of legal service, I have successfully assisted a number of minors charged with crimes such as:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Underage drinking
- Drug possession
Minimizing the Legal Impact
I understand that as parents you are going through a difficult time. You want to support your child without condoning any misbehavior. Yet, you don’t want to see one misstep lead to a lifetime of regret. It often feels as though the system is relentlessly attacking your child. One of the ways I can help minimize the legal impact on your child is to bring in a guardian ad litem to help advocate on behalf of your child.
My main objective in representing your child is to help them avoid harsh punitive measures and to get the juvenile court system and law enforcement out of their lives. In many cases, I have been instrumental in keeping charges off a minor’s record. Also, you as the custodial parent do not want to be viewed by the Court as having abused or neglected your child causing of the child's criminal conduct.
Your child is important to you. Protect them from the impact of a felony record.
I look forward to speaking with you about your child’s juvenile court matter and helping them get on the right track. Contact the Law Firm of Kevin Stuart Cavanaugh today and schedule a free initial consultation. Call (913) 387-3193.
