Advocating For Your Best Interests

Protecting The Rights Of Indiana’s Kids And Teens

Most times, a juvenile matter can be confusing, if not overwhelming, for a family. That is when you want the services of an experienced juvenile attorney by your side. Altman, Poindexter & Wyatt LLC of Carmel can help your family through any juvenile matter.

If your child has been involved in an incident and needs to either meet with juvenile probation or go to court for a juvenile delinquency petition, we have the experience and can help.  If the Department of Child Services wants to speak with you or your child, we have the experience and can help. If a Child in Need of Services (CHINS) petition has been filed and you have to go to court, we have the experience and can help. If you find yourself in any of these situations, you can place your trust in our juvenile law attorneys and put their experience to work for you.

Doing Everything We Can For Kids In Trouble With The Law

Just a few of the juvenile court matters we frequently handle include:

  • Curfew violations
  • Minor in possession of controlled substances
  • Operating a vehicle under the influence (OWI)
  • Drug charges
  • Theft, robbery and shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Battery
  • Auto theft

We often seek dismissal of delinquency charges or pursue diversionary programs for juveniles such as an informal adjustment, both of which can lead to expungements or sealing juvenile records for your child.  Other alternative resolutions could be placing a child on probation upon a finding of juvenile delinquency.  In the most extreme situations, the Court could remove a juvenile from home and place him in either a private treatment facility or even the Indiana Department of Corrections for juveniles.  Our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to help navigate through a delinquency case to the best possible result.

A Former Prosecutor Defending Your Child

Our co-founding attorney, Scott Wyatt, is a former prosecutor and public defender. In his experience, he has seen firsthand what is required to avoid the State from charging a minor as an adult and how to negotiate the best possible resolution in a delinquency case. He sees the child behind the criminal charge, and strives to protect their rights and their future.
