Crown Point Juvenile Delinquency Attorney


Do you have a son, daughter, or other minor child in your care that is in legal trouble?  Turn to me, a skilled Northwest Indiana juvenile delinquency lawyer for careful and experienced representation.


At the Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell, we handle juvenile delinquency cases with great care and dedication.  We understand that as a parent or guardian, you are worried about your child's future.  Our juvenile defense services create confidence and calm in our clients.


Juvenile crimes, such as underage drinking and possession of marijuana, can result in probation, time in a juvenile detention center, community service, and other harsh penalties.

  The consequences of juvenile delinquency may last long into the child's future, preventing him or her from getting a job or even getting into a college or university.


As Northwest Indiana juvenile delinquency lawyers, we aggressively defend children in juvenile delinquency cases.  Whenever possible, we will seek to mitigate the immediate penalties or long-term consequences of any juvenile crimes.


For serious crimes, we will work extremely hard to keep the case out of adult court in order to lessen the potential for a lengthy jail or prison sentence.


I represent minors who have been charged with:


• Assault or battery

• Drug possession and drug dealing

• Minor in possession of alcohol/minor consumption

• Theft or conversion

• Robbery or burglary

• Violation of juvenile probation

• All other crimes
