Woodbridge NJ Juvenile Attorneys
There are occasions where juveniles are arrested in Woodbridge Township just like any other municipality in Middlesex County. A juvenile does not have his or her criminal charge heard in Woodbridge Municipal Court when this occurs. The offense is dealt with in the Family Division of the Middlesex County Superior Court. In addition, the child must have an attorney at his/her side throughout these proceedings. A parent must either qualify for a public defender or secure a private attorney at or before the Mandatory Assignment of Counsel Hearing in New Brunswick. If your child was arrested for any type of juvenile charge, our office has decades of experience practicing in the Juvenile Court, as well as in Woodbridge. A defense lawyer at our firm, may be even one of our prosecutors, is available 24/7 at 732-634-0700 for a free consultation.
