PATERSON, WAYNE, PASSAIC, BERGEN, HUDSON, ESSEX, AND MORRIS COUNTY JUVENILE CRIMES LAWYER
Engaging in delinquent behavior can lead to drug use and dependency, dropping out of school, incarceration, adult criminal behavior, and injury.
FIGHTING TO KEEP YOUR CHILD OUT OF JAIL
In the State of New Jersey, juveniles are charged in juvenile courts in front of a judge with no jury. The goal of the juvenile justice system is to rehabilitate the offender and help him or she get their life back on track, not to punish the offenders.
Attorney David L. Pine understands and can navigate the juvenile justice system to benefit your loved one. He will utilize his 30+ years of criminal law experience to protect your child during this difficult time.
Three Goals of the Juvenile Justice System
To Hold The Juvenile Accountable
To Rehabilitate the Juvenile
To Promote Public Safety
In many cases, time in jail or a detention facility is never really the right answer when reacting to a child's charges. Our Passaic County juvenile defense attorney, David L. Pine, believes in making sure your child gets the treatment and help he or she truly needs. This means that he will always seek options that do not include jail time whenever possible.
Our team works hard to push for non-incarceration alternatives that may include:
- Paying fines
- Community service
- Rehabilitation programs
- Alternate disposition
