Juvenile Crimes

Morristown, New Jersey, Juvenile Court Attorney

Because of their age and inexperience, children receive special treatment in the criminal justice system; they often do not comprehend the repercussions of their actions until it is too late. Juvenile delinquency can cause immediate and irreparable harm to your child's future. In certain instances, a juvenile record can interfere with your child's admission to the college of their choice and their ability to secure a good job. A minor charged as an adult could face a much more serious penalty and sentence.

At James M. Porfido law offices, our attorneys have over 20 years of experience defending clients charged with juvenile crimes and can effectively represent your child in court.

We offer sound counsel and aggressive defense of juvenile defendants and take every step to ensure that a minor is not removed from juvenile court. Contact our attorneys for an immediate consultation.

Juvenile offenses are on the rise. Should your child be charged with underage alcohol consumption, drug charges, assault, criminal mischief, or any other offense, the consequences can adversely affect your child's future. Our office can advise you of the legal consequences of a juvenile record, and develop a defense strategy designed to minimize the effect a criminal charge has on your child's prospects.

We will give guidance and advice to explain all aspects of the charge and its repercussions. We will evaluate the case and discuss whether your child’s offense is subject to waiver, which allows the state to try your child as an adult offender. Records and expungements and the rehabilitative purpose of the juvenile process are thoroughly explained. Out-of-court resolutions such as Juvenile Conference Committee (JCC) and Intake Services Committee (ISC) will be thoroughly examined and explained.

Our juvenile court attorneys have experience in a wide range of minor and serious offenses, including:

  • Underage drinking
  • Drug crimes (possession, distribution, paraphernalia)
  • Assault
  • Criminal mischief
  • Theft (shoplifting)

When facing a juvenile crime matter, you need the experience of a lawyer who has been a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney for over 20 years, such as attorney James M. Porfido. As seasoned attorneys working in the juvenile court system in North Jersey, including Morris County, we know how it functions and have established good relationships with local judges, attorneys and court personnel.
