A Passionate Defense of Juveniles

All forms of juvenile crimes are serious and real close to the hearts of our legal team. Depending on how these cases are handled, and the counseling given to the young person, a lifetime of change can occur.

In some cases in which favorable verdicts are handed down from Harris County jurors, The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates may see grounds to petition the court to have the criminal records involved with the case removed from the background of the accused young person. We encourage parents to work with us on this end so that the criminal record may not appear in background checks in the future and adversely effect future growth opportunities.
