New Jersey Juvenile Defense Attorney
Representing Juveniles and Young Adults from Morris County to Bergen County and Beyond
It can happen in a moment–a single mistake, bad decision, false accusation, or misunderstanding that alters the trajectory of your life forever. When you are a juvenile, college student, or young adult accused of a crime, your current standing and future opportunities are immediately placed in jeopardy. Perhaps you face disciplinary action at school, you are denied admission to the college of your choice, you aren’t hired for your dream job–all of these are very real potential results of being adjudicated delinquent or convicted of a crime in New Jersey. However, an accusation is by no means a presumption of guilt. You deserve to present your side of the story, to defend your innocence, to protect your reputation, and to preserve the endless options before you as you begin your journey toward achieving your goals.
