Lawyer for Cranbury Juvenile Arrests
If Cranbury or Plainsboro Police have charged your child with drug possession or other criminal offense, call to speak with an experienced defense lawyer. The local municipal courts do not have jurisdiction over juvenile criminal matters. This subjects juveniles to the more formal adjudicatory process in the Middlesex County Superior Court. We offer an initial free consultation on these cases. Give us a call so we can explain the process to you and make sure your child’s rights are protected.
