Juvenile offenders can be charged with the same types of crimes as adults. Teen shoplifting, underage drinking, or a drug arrest can change the entire course of your child’s life. The potential resolutions to conviction for a juvenile crime in New Jersey can range from probation to years of custodial incarceration. If your child has been charged with a crime it is extremely important to speak with an experienced juvenile crime defense lawyer.

Criminal defense lawyers Howard Bailey and Michael Orozco protect the rights of many young people who navigate the juvenile justice system. The attorneys will discuss with you the specifics of your situation and how to best pursue a resolution to your case. They will help you understand how the same legal issues that apply to adult crimes (search and seizure, procedural matters) also apply to juvenile issues. They can ensure that age specific regulations regarding police interrogations are upheld.
The word “waiver” used regarding a juvenile crime should immediately raise a red flag. Waiving juvenile status means your child will be tried in Superior (adult) Court and carries the risk of sentencing that is more severe and can be detrimental to your child. Our lawyers can begin your child's aggressive defense by preventing waiving of your child's right to be tried as a juvenile.
