Putnam County Juvenile Defense Lawyer

Protecting the Rights of Criminally Accused Minors

Entering the justice system can be intimidating, but it can feel a lot worse when your child is criminally accused. Juveniles charged with a crime in Putnam County and the surrounding area can face serious allegations and penalties; they need a compassionate defense counsel to guide them and their families through the process.

Turn to The Law Office of Douglas K. Dennis for experienced representation. Call (931) 528-3684 for a free consultation.

Navigating Your Child through the Legal System

Across Tennessee, common juvenile criminal charges are often related to drugs and alcohol, traffic violations, truancy, property theftvandalism, and assault. These are serious accusations with serious consequences and the state of Tennessee can charge your child with misdemeanors and even felonies.

When this happens, your child may face a hearing to transfer him or her to adult court, where they can be tried and sentenced as adults even if they’re younger than the age of 18 (T.C.A. § 37-1-134).

Experienced legal counsel makes winning these hearings possible, but it’s also possible to avoid such hearings and heartache altogether. We can walk you and your child through every step of the legal process to help with important decisions that can benefit your child’s future.
