Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney in Denville — Dedicated to Protecting Your Child’s Future

Our juvenile defense lawyers understand how overwhelming it can be to learn that your child is facing criminal charges. Even a conviction for simple drug possession can have a detrimental effect on a child’s future. We combine our skills as former prosecutors with our comprehensive understanding of the juvenile justice system to provide clients with an effective defense strategy. We are experienced at handling juvenile crime cases that involve all types of misdemeanor and felony juvenile offenses, including:

Maintaining a Clean Criminal Record in Randolph Township, NJ

The juvenile court system is focused primarily on rehabilitation. Therefore, in many juvenile cases, it may be possible to negotiate an alternative sentencing option that helps your child avoid criminal penalties and a criminal record. We negotiate with prosecutors to obtain an adjourned disposition. An adjourned disposition allows your child to seek appropriate treatment — drug treatment, alcohol treatment, or other applicable treatment — during a probationary period. If, at the conclusion of the probationary period, your child has complied with all terms of the probation, the case will be dismissed.

Severe Penalties for Juvenile Offenses in Washington Township, NJ

In some cases, such as cases involving rape or sexual assault allegations or other violent crimes, alternative sentencing may not be offered by the prosecution. In these cases, it is critical to have an experienced juvenile criminal defense lawyer who will relentlessly advocate for your child’s rights and freedom. Without effective defense counsel, a juvenile convicted for a sex offense may be required to register as a sex offender for his or her entire life.
