The adolescent years can be a trying time in your son or daughter’s life. Sometimes simple emotional responses can lead to poor choices or misunderstandings between your child and school staff.

If a situation draws the attention of law enforcement and your child is charged with assault against a school employee or causing criminal damage to school property, it could carry significant consequences. Not only could this result in suspension, or expulsion, criminal charges could be brought against them by the school district, local, or state authorities.

In a case like this, you need the kind of experienced legal defense offered by Dennis Pawelek and the associates at Pawelek Law.

One of the things we specialize in is defending assault charges, as well as many of the aspects associated with juvenile law. After a consultation and assessment of the information, Dennis Pawelek will develop a defense plan to help minimize the impact on your child in the present, and in their prospects for the future.

This might include a plea bargain, developing a community service based restitution, or helping to later expunge their record to help minimize the long term impact of the event in question.
