Years ago, what happened in Juvenile Court, stayed in Juvenile Court and did not follow a child for the rest of his/her life.  Now, that could not be farther from the truth.

Many people do not realize that a juvenile criminal conviction before the age of adulthood will plague a child throughout his/her life. If your child is suspected in, has been accused of or charged with a crime, you must take legal action as soon as possible.  Do not let a case of bad judgment ruin your child’s life and future opportunities.  With the help of a Tuscaloosa County Juvenile Defense Lawyer from Blume & Blume, you can effectively challenge the allegations and seek to minimize or avoid the consequences for your child.

Defining the Law

Alabama’s Juvenile criminal laws apply to children under the age of 18. The Juvenile Justice System is completely separate from the court system that governs adults, and has its own set of laws, rules, regulations, procedures and personal. It is important that your child be represented by a lawyer from Blume & Blume who has successfully navigated, defended and obtained desirable results in Juvenile Court. The attorneys at Blume & Blume are known throughout the State of Alabama, the South and the United States as leaders in the defense of children charged with Juvenile Court crimes.
