Although a large percentage of juvenile drug possession charges involve marijuana, controlled dangerous substances (“CDS”) like heroin, prescription drugs, and MDNA (e.g. ecstasy and molly) also come up quite a bit. And with the exception of those minor cases that are referred to Conference Committee, all juvenile CDS possession cases are referred to the Essex County Juvenile Division. Our team of defense lawyers can help your child overcome any drug charge and minimize the long-term impact that could result from a conviction.

On top of it, at least four (4) of the lawyers are former prosecutors, and the staff has a combined experience of over 100 years. Unlike many firms on the internet who taut their abilities yet are unwilling to even disclose important qualifications like when they were licensed to practice law, there is no guess work with our firm. We are seasoned criminal lawyers with a long record of success in both basic and complex CDS cases.
