Hackensack Juvenile Defense Attorneys
IS YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER ACCUSED OF A CRIME?
If your child has never been in trouble with the law, an arrest is devastating and scary. If your son or daughter will have to answer for prior offenses, you may be worried that the penalties will be harsher this time around.
You need an experienced juvenile defense attorney to advocate for your teenager's rights and to navigate him or her through the juvenile justice system. The Rem Zeller Law Group in Hackensack will explain the potential consequences and intervene to ensure your child is treated fairly and not unduly punished.

Bergen County Juvenile Offense Lawyers
Juvenile court works differently than adult criminal court, but juvenile criminal charges must still be taken very seriously. We have represented youths accused of everything from shoplifting to major felonies, including:
Many parents cling to the outdated notion that their child will get "kid glove" treatment or that a juvenile record disappears at age 18. That is no longer the case in a post-9/11 world. An adjudication of delinquency (the equivalent of conviction) can result in incarceration in a juvenile detention facility, and it can have lasting effects on the youth's job prospects in adulthood and eligibility for record expungement.
You need to have all the facts before your child goes to court, and you need a sophisticated defense to counter the prosecution's version of events and to advocate for leniency in sentencing. This is especially true if the prosecutor wants to charge an older teen as an adult for a serious felony crime. We will fight to prevent your child from being transferred to Superior Court to face prison and other adult consequences.
