If your child has been charged with a crime, you should contact an attorney with experience handling juvenile crimes immediately. The earlier in the process you retain strong representation for your child, the better the opportunity your attorney has to seek a favorable outcome in the case.

A conviction on a juvenile offense can result in serious penalties and can have a severe impact on a child’s future. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can work to protect your child’s interests from the beginning of the process. At the Kridel Law Group, we understand what is at stake in juvenile crime cases. We fight aggressively to protect your child’s rights and future.

Let us help you protect your child’s best interests. Contact a skilled New Jersey juvenile criminal defense lawyer at the Kridel Law Group today.

Strong Representation In Juvenile Law Matters

The juvenile process is designed to rehabilitate children. Prosecutors can attempt to circumvent this aim by having the child charged as an adult, greatly increasing the possible penalties and the repercussions of a conviction. Our criminal defense attorneys have helped countless clients throughout northern New Jersey, including Passaic, Bergen, Essex and Morris counties as well as New York City to keep their cases in juvenile court and avoid the ramifications of having an adult record.

We have also been successful at having juveniles admitted to the Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI). PTI is New Jersey’s rehabilitative program for minors. PTI can involve a variety of conditions, including:

  • supervision
  • drug testing
  • community service
  • restitution
  • participation in chemical or psychological treatment programs.

Upon successful completion of the program, there is no record of the conviction. Our Clifton juvenile criminal defense attorneys can help you resolve your case in a timely and stress-free manner.
