Drug Offenses

The number of cases handled by the juvenile courts involving juvenile drug offenses has more than doubled between 1991 and 2004. A juvenile crime may be the same as an adult crime, but the resolution and penalties for juveniles are much different than those handed down for adults.

A juvenile drug offense can be devastating to the juvenile and all those connected to the juvenile. Such an offense can wreak havoc on a family and can negatively impact the future life of a young person. Oftentimes the juvenile is unaware of the magnitude of their offense or the implications that can result. It is imperative that the matter be handled by an experienced attorney who is well versed in juvenile law and fully familiar with the juvenile system. Messrs. Kearns and Rotolo are strong advocates for the juvenile offender and adamantly believe that a juvenile is deserving of a second chance.

Unlike criminal court for adults, the juvenile courts have wide discretion on handling and sentencing juveniles. There is opportunity to help a juvenile and intervene at this stage in their life to prevent future drug-related issues and crimes and prevent the juvenile from embarking on a negative path in life.

Anthony Kearns and Victor Rotolo will strive to protect your child from an aggressive juvenile system while also seeking to obtain the intervention and treatment a juvenile may need. In certain circumstances, charges may be dropped or reduced in exchange for counseling, rehabilitation programs or other programs that can help a teen with drug issues.

As a former prosecutor in Hunterdon County, Anthony Kearns works to protect the rights of his clients as does Victor Rotolo, a former police officer in Elizabeth, NJ. Call Kearns Rotolo Law today to obtain defense and guidance in protecting the rights of your teen and help put him or her on a positive path in life.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
