Defending Your Child's Future When They Face Criminal Charges

Has your child been accused of a crime? As a parent, you understand the potential impact a juvenile record could have on your child's future, including his or her education and future employment opportunities. Protect your child's future and contact our experienced Columbus juvenile defense attorney.

At the Kelly Law Office in Columbus, we provide strong, caring representation in Ohio juvenile courts. Since 1992, we have been standing up for the rights of minors charged with juvenile offenses of all types, including misdemeanors and felonies, such as:

  • Shoplifting and theft
  • Drug possession
  • Assault
  • Sex crimes
  • Speeding and traffic violations
  • Underage drinking
  • Trespassing and burglary

We know that you and your child are scared. We understand your fear and believe that providing you with knowledge and information about the law and the legal process is the best way to eliminate that fear and empower you. We will give you a realistic assessment of your child's legal situation, along with knowledge and information, so that you are able to choose the options or direction that best suits your needs. Whichever direction you choose, we provide strong, caring counsel so that you can feel confident in achieving your goals. You can be assured that at the Kelly Law Office, you will be treated with respect and dignity.

We Believe Children Should Not Be Tried As Adults

In cases involving serious juvenile offenses, one of the first challenges that we will need to overcome is keeping the case in juvenile court. Prosecutors will try to force the juvenile courts to relinquish jurisdiction so the child can be tried as an adult, and face the much more serious penalties that an adult would have to face. We believe that children should not be treated as adults, and we will do everything within our power to keep your child's case in juvenile court where it belongs.

Protect Your Child's Future And Your Finances With Our Reasonable Fees

Our fees are reasonable. In fact, many of our family law, criminal and other services are offered at flat rates, so you will know up front how much your case will cost. If your case is billed on an hourly basis you will be kept apprised of your expenditures with itemized statements on a monthly basis or any other periodic basis at your request.
