Available 24 Hours a Day. 7 Days a Week
If your or someone close to you has been charged with a juvenile crime, you may be feeling overwhelmed with emotion and confusion as to how to best help the juvenile. Although an adult and juvenile may commit the same offense, the Courts of New Jersey handle acts of delinquency and criminal acts very differently. In New Jersey, offenses committed by juveniles that are deemed “crimes” when committed by an adult, are considered “acts of delinquency” when committed by juveniles.

This record may affect the juvenile’s future employment and educational opportunities. It is very important to retain the help of an experienced New Jersey juvenile crimes lawyer to fight for the best outcome for the child.
