For many people, the phrase "juvenile court" conjures only images of juvenile delinquency. In Tennessee, juvenile court, however, involves far more areas of law than just juvenile delinquency. Clients find themselves in juvenile court when they are dealing with


The Need for Focused Legal Guidance

Unfortunately, even when their rights regarding their children are at stake, many clients do not understand the complicated legal processes at work in juvenile court. Clients may mistakenly believe that all they have to do is show up in court with their child and tell their side of the story. Few things could be further from the truth.

First, even if it is just the client's ex-spouse on the other side, juvenile court can be a highly charged emotional atmosphere. Clients and their children, therefore, benefit from having a lawyer who can retain the focus necessary to successfully protect their rights. Other times, clients may arrive in juvenile court and find that the other side, often an ex-spouse, has retained his or her own private attorney. On still other occasions, the court itself may have appointed a guardian ad litem to oppose the client.

In all of these situations, clients must have their own lawyer to help them understand how to navigate the legal waters.
