New Jersey Juvenile Theft Attorney
Juvenile court is different from adult court in procedures as well as philosophy: Punishment is secondary to rehabilitation. If you are a parent of a child charged with:
- Assault or fighting,
- Juvenile theft/shoplifting,
- Marijuana possession or
- Other drug crime,
you need a lawyer who knows the procedures in juvenile court. New Jersey juvenile defense lawyer John Tierney is an experienced attorney who, among other roles, was the Designated Felony Liaison for Juvenile Offenders in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office. There, he prosecuted first degree violent felonies, attempted murders, armed robberies, sexual offenses, and armed burglaries and assaults.
Certain juvenile crimes carry the real possibility of the child being transferred to adult court, where sanctions such as a prison sentence are possible. Whether you, as a young person, or your child, is charged in juvenile court or adult court, your lawyer must be skilled at trial and in negotiation with prosecutors.
Mission Statement: The essence of this firm is and will be the ongoing pursuit and expectation of excellence. Day by day and case by case, this conviction sets the standard for firm conduct, the upbeat tempo of the firm ethic and the bedrock tenet of client service at reasonable and fully disclosed rates.
Depending on the strength of the state's case, a plea bargain may be advisable. Attorney Tierney has extensive knowledge of the family, educational and neurological factors affecting youth behavior. These can be mitigating factors, or can even weaken the state's case against you.
Mr. Tierney knows both sides of the courtroom, having been a prosecutor. He knows what you are up against, and is ready to protect and defend you.
