Morris County Juvenile Crime Defense
The juvenile justice system is intended for rehabilitation rather than punishment. But it takes a lawyer experienced in juvenile court to protect your child’s rights and keep the focus on getting that second chance.
If your son or daughter has been charged with an offense, call Gregg A. Wisotsky, Esq. Partner, Javerbaum Wurgaft Hicks Kahn Wikstrom & Sinins, PC at 973-898-0161 or contact our office online to arrange a free telephone consultation. We will take the time to address your concerns and explain the potential outcomes to a variety of charges.
Experienced Representation for Juvenile Charges
New Jersey law requires that youths under 18 be represented by an attorney in criminal and juvenile delinquency matters. We are an established criminal defense law firm with over 25 years of experience, including extensive practice in juvenile courts of Morris County and all counties of North Jersey.
We have favorably resolved cases involving every type of juvenile crime allegation:
- Alcohol violations, including DWI
- Drug possession
- Shoplifting, theft or burglary
- Vandalism or arson
- School fights and aggravated assault
- Sexual assault and other sex offenses
Limiting the Impact and Getting Help for Your Child
For certain offenses, your child could be sent to juvenile detention or a halfway house. For major crimes, he or she could be tried in adult court and sent to jail or prison. We work hard to keep clients in the juvenile system when possible and fight for alternatives to incarceration.
There are many diversion programs that result in dismissal of charges if your youth stays out of trouble. The court can approve counseling programs for alcohol, drugs, anger management and other treatment to help your child. But these alternatives are not automatic. We always look forward to helping a child in need of quality representation.
