New Jersey Juvenile Matters

Respected New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyers Handling Juvenile Law Matters

The juvenile justice system in New Jersey works differently than the adult criminal justice system. Under most circumstances in juvenile cases, the focus is on rehabilitation rather than punishment. At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in Bergen County, New Jersey, we have more than fifteen years of experience working with juveniles and there families to find constructive resolutions to criminal matters.

Effective Juvenile Defense Lawyers

We recognize that teens often get into situations that they never intended. They also often fail to appreciate the long-term consequences of their actions. Criminal convictions can prevent juveniles from holding some jobs and can prevent them from being admitted to some colleges. Our attorneys believe that an error in judgment should not affect a person’s life forever. We are committed to representing juveniles charged with a wide range of offenses:

In recent years, more and more juvenile matters are being transferred to adult courts. We work diligently to ensure that criminal offenses committed by a juvenile remain in juvenile court. In many cases, we are able to have the charges reduced or dismissed. Our primary objective is to minimize the consequences of juvenile offenses in an effort to protect the offender’s future interests.

Eric was able to successfully represent me in a financial dispute. I found his candor, knowledge, and skills highly effective in resolving the matter. This was my first experience using his services and now regard him as my personal attorney for any issue. Eric is my first call. Thank you! Dave
Couldn’t have done it without his help. He kept us calm, had complete knowledge of the process and helped us negotiate our plea. It was totally worth hiring a lawyer have the outcome we did. Maureen
