Handling a Wide Range of Legal Issues Affecting Minors

If you are a minor or the parent of a child involved in a legal controversy, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. Whether you are facing juvenile delinquency charges or have concerns about the competency of a caregiver, you want an attorney who understands the law and who will fight to protect your interests.

At the Law Office of Leif Rush Hampton, Attorney at Law, P.C., in Tuscaloosa, I have done extensive work with minors as a court-appointed guardian ad litem and understand the different issues that affect minors. I work hard to obtain the desired results while maintaining the personal service and attention clients expect. I aggressively protect the rights of my clients, while providing straightforward answers to your questions in a supportive environment.

My Criminal Defense Practice

I handle a wide range of legal matters affecting juveniles, including:

  • Juvenile delinquency: I handle cases involving charges against minors that would be considered crimes if committed by an adult.
  • Juvenile sex crimes: I defend minors charged with sex offenses and can help you or your child comply with sex offender registry requirements under Alabama law. You want an experienced attorney to guide you through this process, as parents can be charged with a felony for failing to properly register a juvenile sex offender if convicted.
  • Child in need of supervision cases (CHINS): I work with minors who have engaged in activity that, while not criminal, reflects a need for training, rehabilitation or supervision, such as truancy, disobedience or running away from home.
  • Dependency cases: I protect the rights of minors who do not have a parent or guardian capable of acting as a caregiver, working with the court to appoint a legal guardian.
  • Termination of parental rights proceedings: I handle all matters related to the termination of parental rights, including situations where there has been family member abuse.
