Juvenile Attorney In Passaic County

When faced with the harsh reality of juvenile charges, the parenting journey can feel overwhelming. From minor offenses to more serious charges, each case demands careful attention and strategic planning. That is why seeking the expertise of a juvenile attorney is important.

Acquaviva Law Offices, LLC, has been aggressively representing clients in Passaic County, New Jersey, and assertively negotiating favorable outcomes since 1991. I, Alfred V. Acquaviva, understand the legal process can be complex, especially when dealing with a juvenile. I can help you understand your rights and explore your legal options when you work with me.

Circumstances Leading To A Juvenile Conviction

In Passaic County, juveniles can be charged with offenses under various circumstances, with the legal age of adulthood being 18. Juvenile charges can arise from a range of situations, including but not limited to:

  • Criminal offenses like theft, assault, drug possession and vandalism
  • Traffic violations, including speeding, reckless driving and driving under the influence (DUI)
  • School-related incidents such as fights, bullying, possession of prohibited substances or vandalism
  • Family issues such as assault, harassment or violation of restraining orders
  • Substance abuse like the possession, distribution or use of illegal substances or underage drinking
  • Property crimes such as burglary, trespassing, vandalism or theft
  • Involvement in gang-related activities or crimes

Each case is unique, and the circumstances will vary. As a juvenile defense lawyer, I will help you explore every legal option for your case, including dismissal or reduction of charges, alternative sentencing or decreased penalties. I can also check if you qualify for sealing or expungement of records.
