Juvenile Law Attorney

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Chad Shelton is an experienced juvenile law attorney representing juveniles being tried in municipal, circuit or family court for criminal offenses. We believe that everyone is entitled to a fair trial and is innocent until proven guilty.

As a juvenile defense lawyer, we often see good kids who get mixed up in a bad situation and/or succumb to peer pressure.  Parents often come to us panicked and worried.  We help ease anxiety by explaining all of the possible outcomes and carefully walking clients through the legal process.  Most importantly, we are their designated lawyer for juvenile court, representing clients in front of family, municipal and circuit court judges.

Juveniles who fall through the cracks of the system can become repeat offenders and face the potential of revolving in and out of jail.  We feel the role of a juvenile defense lawyer is to ensure the juvenile not only receives a fair trial, but also obtains any applicable assistance necessary to help them get back on track. Unfortunately, not every juvenile law attorney operates with the same philosophy. We work closely with our juvenile clients and their families to get to the root of any issues and help them find the resources they need to get back on the right track.

There is nothing more rewarding than helping a juvenile offender transform his/her life.  We are passionate about helping them become productive, law abiding adults.
