If your child has been picked up by police for a crime and taken into custody, it is essential to hire the best juvenile lawyer, one who will have the interest of your child at heart.

You need a tough and caring advocate with you and your child in juvenile court.
If your child has been taken into custody by the police, the police have a duty under Ohio law to notify you. The best time to hire a top juvenile lawyer for your child is as soon as you are notified by law enforcement of your child's crime. It is important to advise your child not to speak to anyone in law enforcement without an attorney present, no matter what promises they make. As a parent or guardian, you have a right to be present during questioning of your child and you should take an expert juvenile lawyer with you to preserve the rights of your child.

During questioning, your child has the right to remain silent and will be asked for identification and for details of the crime. They may also be photographed and fingerprinted. As your juvenile expert attorney, I will suggest what should and what should not be answered by the juvenile during this questioning phase. Anything that is said at this stage may be very incriminating in trial later on, so it is essential to have a tough and caring juvenile lawyer who is trustworthy at your child's side.
Any juvenile that has been taken into custody for a crime may be detained in a juvenile detention center for up to 24 hours without a court order. The child has a right to a detention hearing where a judge will decide if the juvenile may be released to his parents or other adult. At this hearing the judge or magistrate will consider the petition, a list of the charges filed against the juvenile. It is important to hire an expert juvenile lawyer to preserve your child's rights at this hearing and all future juvenile proceedings. The outcome of this hearing is known as disposition and will determine if and under what conditions the juvenile may return home.
In most cases, your child's records are confidential but are always available to law enforcement. This means that your child's current juvenile record may affect him in the future. For your child, it is very important to hire the best juvenile lawyer to protect your child's rights now and in the future.
