Juvenile Code Of Justice

Morris County Criminal Defense Lawyers Who Protect The Rights Of Juveniles

The New Jersey Code of Juvenile Justice (N.J.S.A. Title 2A Chapter 4) is a special statute that provides the regulatory framework for handling juvenile court proceedings. It offers certain protections to mitigate the consequences of crimes that would be punished with jail or prison sentences in adult court. At James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, our attorney has more than 20 years of experience handling cases in the juvenile court system, particularly in Morris County, New Jersey. We are experienced with the Juvenile Code of Justice. We understand the protections that it offers to juveniles charged with crimes, and we use this knowledge to help ensure that the juvenile is treated fairly and appropriately in accordance with the law.
