Providing Compassionate Juvenile Defense
When children break the law before the age of 18, they are treated as a juvenile in the eyes of the law. Sometimes, the judge in the case will increase the severity of the charges or may even charge the minor as an adult. Attorney Mendelsohn will work hard to keep the charges brought against your child in juvenile court so that the possible punishments in the case of a conviction are kept to a minimum.
Some examples of juvenile offenses we handle include:
- Marijuana possession and other drug crimes
- Underage drinking and underage DUI/DWI
- Shoplifting and theft charges
- Disorderly conduct
- Terroristic threats
- School-based crimes
Our Bergen County law firm is here to guide you through the steps for moving forward in order to help protect your child’s future.

Ensuring A Brighter Future For Your Child
A conviction of any sort leaves a stain on a child’s record that may take him or her years to overcome. A criminal charge can have negative consequences for your child’s college admissions, financial aid options, career opportunities, housing options and more – even if the charge does not result in a conviction.
