Protecting the Rights of Juvenile Offenders

A conviction for a juvenile offense can quickly set a minor on the path to committing future criminal acts. At such a young age, there is still opportunity to set the path straight and preserve their future. As experienced juvenile defense attorneys, we focus on rehabilitation and avoiding the potential serious penalties for juvenile offenses. When a conviction is inevitable, we advocate for alternative sentencing, such as home monitoring, community service and other alternatives.

Our juvenile court practice includes defense of minors facing charges for the following:

  • Marijuana possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Underage drinking or minor in possession of alcohol (MIP)
  • Drunk driving/DUI
  • Simple assault
  • Vandalism
  • Shoplifting
  • Speeding, reckless driving or other traffic violations
  • Juvenile delinquency
  • Other juvenile offenses


We also represent clients in juvenile dependency and guardianship matters which are also heard before the juvenile courts in New Jersey.
