Protect Your Child’s Future From A Criminal Conviction
A conviction in the juvenile courts can prevent your child from obtaining scholarships and from getting into college.
At Sally Goodman Law, I provide legal counsel for parents and their children in county juvenile court systems throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. I offer families more than three decades of experienced representation, during which I have earned board certification as a criminal law specialist as well as the respect of juvenile court officials throughout the region.
My staff and I will work closely with your family to build a strong defense, always focused on protecting your child’s promising future.
A Lawyer Who Will Do Everything Possible To Protect Your Child’s Future
I understand that your child is not a criminal and that the allegations may only be an instance of poor judgment or circumstances. I will carefully review the circumstances, evidence and testimony behind your child’s charges and work hard to pursue a strategy that will avoid the harsh consequences and severe penalties for convicted juvenile offenders.
I represent parents whose children are charged with offenses in the juvenile court system, including:
- Juvenile delinquency
- Drug charges, including trafficking and manufacturing
- Unauthorized use of a vehicle, carjackings
- Vehicular homicide, hit-and-runs, reckless driving
- Underage drinking and DWIs
- Criminal mischief
- Resisting, evading arrest or detention
- Burglary, breaking and entering, criminal trespass
- Robbery, aggravated robbery with a weapon
- Assault and battery
- Domestic violence
- Gang violence
- Child pornography
- Sexting and other internet-based offenses
- Sexual assault, rape, sexual assault of a minor
Adult Reclassification And Juvenile Charges
If your child has serious charges, such as a sex crime, gang violence or assault, the prosecutor may seek to impose adult criminal penalties. An underage person who is charged as an adult can face more severe sentencing, including up to life imprisonment. I will work tirelessly to keep your child’s criminal matter in the juvenile courts. I will also make every effort to keep your child from spending any time at the Texas Youth Commission’s detention facilities.

If you are an undocumented immigrant in the U.S. and your child has been arrested on criminal charges, you may face problems with ICE, including possible deportation proceedings for your family. My staff and I speak fluent Spanish. Call us to discuss your concerns about criminal charges against your child.
