Your Kids' Future Is Important

If your minor child has been charged with a criminal offense, it is extremely important to consult with a qualified defense attorney — doing so could preserve your child's present and future rights and opportunities. The result of this matter could leave a lasting mark on your child's criminal record, and jeopardize employment and educational opportunities for years to come. At the Law Offices of Michael T. Nolan, Jr., I offer parents and guardians nearly 20 years of experience in juvenile court matters. I will stand up for your child's rights and work hard to have the charges reduced or dropped to prevent the harsh consequences of a conviction.

Has Your Child Been Arrested?

I represent minor children (those under the age of 18) arrested and accused of criminal activities.

My experience in juvenile justice matters includes:

Your child will not face the prosecution alone. I will handle everything for your family and stand by your child's side throughout the case. I am adept at keeping juveniles out of Jamesburg and other New Jersey detention facilities.

How Are Juvenile Delinquency Crimes Different?

While juveniles may be arrested for committing the same crimes as adults, the legal issues must be handled differently. The juvenile justice system differs from the adult one in several important ways, including:

  • Being in the family court system instead of criminal court
  • Not being entitled to bail or bond, but instead being released into the custody of a responsible adult upon showing that they are not a danger to themselves or the community

In some cases, if the charges are for a severe crime or are part of a long-term pattern of criminal activity, the county prosecutor may make a motion to have the child tried as an adult in criminal court (thus removing the matter from family court jurisdiction). As your child's defense lawyer, I will aggressively fight this tactic to save your child from the enormous risk of being tried as an adult.
