Communicate With Parties Involved

Depending on your child’s charges and the type of crime involved, there may be several entities to keep track of, including a lawyer, probation officer, and other public officials. Staying in steady communication with these parties can help you better understand the case and what you and your child need to do to achieve a positive outcome. Our attentive lawyers at Mary E. Conn & Associates communicate with you from start to finish so you never feel lost.

Provide Emotional Support

While you may initially feel angry or upset with your child for breaking the law, it’s crucial to remember everyone makes mistakes.
