Juvenile Matters/Teen Offenders

Drug Offenses | Theft / Shoplifting | Underage Drinking | Vandalism

In the United States nearly two million juveniles are arrested each year for crimes ranging from property damage to drug abuse. Juveniles, those under the age of 18, are not tried in the same method or in the same courts as adult offenders to ensure the safety and well-being of the children.

When juveniles are involved, the goal of the Courts is to provide rehabilitation rather than punishment. Work programs or therapy will be suggested as an alternative to detention centers. After rehabilitation, the Courts will often seal or expunge the youth’s record so the child can have a clean slate. It is the goal of Kearns Rotolo Law to ensure that mistakes from a person’s youth do not generally follow that youth into his/her adult life.

Kearns Rotolo Law understands that a juvenile is not a criminal; a juvenile is a young person that has possibly made a mistake or used wrong judgment in a given situation. A juvenile is someone who deserves the chance to continue to grow without the mistakes from the past hindering progress in the community when he/she becomes an adult.

As a former prosecutor in Hunterdon County, Anthony Kearns is fully familiar with police practices as is Victor Rotolo, a former police officer in Elizabeth, NJ. As experienced criminal attorneys, they are advocates for you in the court room.  This combination of skills and experiences enables them to obtain results for their clients.

Kearns Rotolo Law will provide a young person with representation to make certain the young person has a fair trial and that the appropriate rehabilitation is received. Call Kearns Rotolo Law to discuss your situation today.

Please Note: Effective January 2013, Hunterdon County has instituted a new "Early Intervention Program for Young Offenders." Please see our blog article for more information.

What Our Clients are Saying

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

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!
