Juvenile Proceedings in Chattanooga, Tennessee
Strong Representation from the Defense Attorneys at Davis & Hoss, PC
In Tennessee, juveniles are not convicted like adults, but rather face
delinquency proceedings to determine whether the court should declare
them delinquent or not. Typically — for first-time offenders —
this type of finding can be avoided, but you need a
Chattanooga criminal defense attorney who practices in juvenile court, is familiar with their rules and procedures,
and has the experience and training necessary to try your case before
the juvenile court judge.
In the most serious offenses, children are often transferred to adult court
to face charges that carry significantly heavier penalties. According
to T.C.A. § 37-1-134, every child is entitled to a transfer hearing.
These hearings can be won — but you need an attorney who has experience
in fighting these hearings. At Davis & Hoss, PC, our lawyers haverepresented hundreds of children in juvenile court. Whether the charges involve underage drinking, minor drug possession,
online bullying, or even serious felony offenses, our Chattanooga juvenile
defense lawyers have the experience to represent you or your child in court.
