My Child was Arrested for Theft

As a Monmouth County Juvenile Crime Lawyer I often get calls from parents telling me that their child was arrested for theft.

I advise clients as a Monmouth County Juvenile Crime Lawyer that hiring an attorney who is experienced in these cases is very important.

My Child was Caught Drinking Underage at a Bar

As a Monmouth County Juvenile Crimes Attorney I often speak to people who have been caught drinking underage at a bar. If you child is being charged with underage drinking at a bar then they can be charged with using a fraudulent ID. I have advised parent’s of clients that this end up being a disorderly person’s offense and will head to municipal court.

My Child Was Charged with a Crime, What Should I Do?

  • All offenses by juveniles which would be heard in a municipal court for an adult.
  • Regardless of what type of charge it is, it is all heard in the family division in the superior court in whatever county in New Jersey that that child lives.
  • It’s not where the child is charged, but it’s actually the county where that child lives.

I am Under 21 and Was Arrested for a DWI in NJ Under .08 BAC

I am often asked as a New Jersey DWI Attorney what can happen if you are arrested while driving underage. If your BAC is greater than a .08, which is the legal limit in New Jersey, you will be charged with a formal adult DWI. I advise clients as a New Jersey DWI Attorney that if your blood level is between .01 and less than .08, while technically not over the limit, you would be charged with an underage DWI. The benefit of having an underage DWI is that it does not technically count as a first DWI.

If you have been arrested for drinking underage while driving, contact our experienced New Jersey DWI Attorney.
