Protect Your Future With A Strong Defense Now
What a person does as a juvenile can haunt them when they are older. Minor teenage pranks can result in a conviction that can negatively affect your child’s ability to get a job, get college grants and lead a productive life. More serious charges such as sexual assault can result in juvenile detention and branding as a sex offender.
If you child has been arrested, you want an attorney at your side you can trust – one whose presence is respected by the opposing side.

Protect Your Child’s Right to a Bright Future
My name is Paul Morrison and I have earned a reputation as a skilled lawyer by being a tough and tenacious legal advocate for my clients. I served as the Johnson County District Attorney for 18 years and as a former Kansas Attorney General. Now I am on the side of people like you and your child.
The sooner I can get started on your defense, the likelier we are to obtain a positive outcome. The juvenile justice system involves many processes along the way to the closing of a case’s file. Each step presents an opportunity to press your child’s case.
Develop a Strategy in an Effort To Secure a Favorable Outcome
First, I seek to have the charges dismissed. If this is not possible, then I ask questions such as:
- Can get your child accepted into a diversion program? This means the charge is put on hold for a period of time and if the child fulfills the obligation of the program, charges are dropped.
- Did the police overcharge the crime? The DA makes the charges based on the police reports. They may or may not be accurate. We will discern immediately whether your child has been overcharged and point this out.
- Did the police behave according to the criminal justice rules? Often they do not, and I will bring that to light.
