Defense Attorney for Egg Harbor Drug & Juvenile Arrests
Egg Harbor Juvenile arrests will result in the case being referred to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office. After reviewing the case, the prosecutor’s office will either set the matter for a plea hearing or calendar call before a Superior Court judge or instead refer it to juvenile justice committee or referee hearing. I have defended juveniles in all these settings. Give me a call anytime if your child has been arrested in Atlantic County.
