Morris County NJ Juvenile Defense Lawyer
Defense Attorneys for Juvenile Charges in Morristown, New Jersey
New Jersey, like many states around the U.S., has established a juvenile court system that focuses on rehabilitation of young offenders rather than punishment. Courts want to reform young offenders and, whenever possible, give them a second chance. This does not mean that you can take charges faced in juvenile court lightly. If you have a son or daughter who is accused of a criminal offense such as shoplifting, criminal mischief, possession of marijuana, or disorderly conduct, it is critical to his or her future that you seek the representation of an experienced juvenile defense attorney, someone who is familiar with the unique set of rules that pertain to juvenile charges in New Jersey.

Here is a review from one of our many satisfied clients who had a juvenile matter in NJ:
Posted by Amy
“Mr. Tormey is a consummate professional. Our case was sensitive and complicated and unusually lengthy for a juvenile case. For 8 months Mr. Tormey faithfully worked our case and never failed to show for court once. Punctual, disciplined, knowledgeable, patient and responsive there aren’t enough words of admiration and gratitude I can apply to him. My son’s case was resolved in our favor and we owe it to Mr. Tormey’s unwavering professionalism. I choose him based on previous reviews and I am so pleased I did as the excellent reviews are absolutely warranted. He made an unbearable situation so much more bearable with his calm demeanor. I highly recommend Travis to anyone needing a juvenile defense attorney. He knows the law and he knows how to navigate the judicial jungle. Without a doubt, one of the best attorneys out there. Thank you Travis for giving my son his life back, I will forever be gratefully indebted.”
The Juvenile Justice System in Morris County NJ
Juvenile charges are typically brought in the county where the juvenile resides, rather than the county where the offense occurred. However, in appropriate cases, a judge will grant a motion to transfer the case to the county of the offense. Juvenile trials are heard by a judge without a jury. The rules of trial in juvenile court are different from the rules in adult court. At sentencing, the judge has many options that are unavailable to adult defendants. The fact is that most juvenile cases are settled without going to trial. However, an experienced juvenile defense lawyer will be prepared to take a case to trial if doing so is in the client’s best interest.
