In New Jersey, matters involving juvenile offenders are handled in the Family Court system rather than in the Superior Court criminal system. Many different rules, procedures, and potential outcomes apply to these cases.
Our firm has defended juveniles throughout the State of New Jersey. Our juvenile law attorneys assist our clients during the entire judicial process and have helped juveniles charged with serious crimes including the following:
- Aggravated Assault
- Bail Hearings
- Domestic Abuse
- Drug Crimes
- Hit and Run
- Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity
- Murder/ Manslaughter
- Parole/Probation Violations
- Robbery/ Burglary
- Sexual Assault, Megan's Law, and Other Sex Crimes
- Weapons Offenses
We realize that young people and their families often have special needs and problems. These can include divided families, alcohol or drug use, school issues, other abuse-related problems, and psychological issues. Our vast experience enables us to help families reach a resolution for many of those problems.
Our juvenile law attorneys are able to direct juveniles and their families to services and programs that can do the following:
- Help the juvenile's defense; and
- Minimize the risk that the juvenile will re-offend or become involved in further problems.
