Juvenile Criminal Mischief Attorney In Morris County, NJ

Do Not Underestimate The Impact Of Any Juvenile Criminal Charge in New Jersey, Get Aggressive Representation Now

When children are charged with criminal mischief, too many parents dismiss it as “kids being kids.” What adults fail to realize is that a conviction for vandalism, or any other form of criminal mischief, can have serious repercussions. A juvenile record may prevent someone from getting into the college of their choice, getting a job, or renting an apartment in the future. Repeat offenders may even face time in a juvenile detention facility or be charged as an adult and face jail time. At James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, we have more than 20 years of experience representing juveniles in Morris County, New Jersey. We are committed to minimizing the consequences your child faces in the present and reducing the effects that a criminal charge will have on their future. Contact our juvenile defense law office for an immediate consultation. We are experienced with criminal mischief crimes, including:

  • Vandalism
  • Graffiti
  • Smashing mailboxes
  • Breaking windows
  • Other forms of property damage

Our Morristown criminal mischief lawyer will thoroughly evaluate the case and put up strong challenges where appropriate. We are seasoned in working in the juvenile court system and will use our skills to obtain the best possible outcome for your child.

Guiding You Through The NJ Juvenile Justice System

The courts recognize that children are young and make mistakes. Thus, underage defendants in New Jersey are governed by a separate code of principles under the Juvenile Code of Justice. This statute deals with special sentencing, confidentiality of records, and other factors in NJ juvenile criminal cases. We will give guidance and advice regarding the specific aspects of your child’s case and the protections the Juvenile Code of Justice offers them. We understand that facing the justice system can be frightening for both you and your child, especially if this is a first offense. We will let you know what to expect in regard to attending juvenile court, sentencing, and future outlook. We will guide you through the juvenile justice system so that there are no unwelcome surprises.

  • Criminal mischief is described in N.J.S.A. 2C:17-3, et seq. of the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice.
