Types of Juvenile Offenses We Represent
Because penalties for minors tend to be less severe than for adults, some mistakenly assume child arrests are nothing to worry about. While juvenile crimes are typically tried in the juvenile court system with a focus on restoration vs. punishment, this does not mean these crimes are taken lightly. An aggressive prosecutor will push for strong punishment, and some judges may cooperate in order to send a message. It is vital that you have equally tenacious defense on your child's side to ensure they have the best chance of avoiding a conviction.

I hired Joseph S. Scura for my criminal case in Superior Court. Joseph was able to downgrade this case to municipal court and at the end have the matter dismissed. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Joseph was very supportive and never disappointing from the very start. I was able to reach out to him any time by text message or phone call with timely responses. His suggestions were very positive and genuine. I highly recommended Attorney Joseph S. Scura and his team for any criminal case.Pieter W.
