Legal Issues Involving Juveniles
Legal matters involving children and teenagers can be especially sensitive, so you want to be sure that you have the right attorneys on your side. At Law Office of Nichole Dusche, Nichole has extensive experience in juvenile law, from civil issues like custody and adoption, to infractions like underage drinking or drug use.

- Underage drinking
- Assault and other altercations
We will work with you in all processes surrounding juvenile court, up to and including record expungement in appropriate cases.
