Kids make mistakes. At The Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt, LLC, I believe one mistake shouldn't derail your child's life. If your child is facing criminal charges, contact my firm. I will fight to protect your child's rights and his or her future.
As a former prosecutor, I know how aggressively the state prosecutes individuals — even children. I am here to make sure your child is given a second chance. I am more than your child's lawyer — I am their advocate.
Kids make mistakes; it's part of growing up. That doesn't mean they are bad, and they shouldn't be labeled as such.
Over the course of my more than 20-year career, I have defended kids, just like yours, against a wide range of criminal offenses, including:
- Drug violations
- Underage drinking
- Disorderly conduct
- Shoplifting and other thefts
A Clean Record For A Brighter Future
Every year more than 65,000 kids in New Jersey are arrested. Once arrested, charged and convicted — even in the juvenile system — your child will have a RAP sheet that will follow them far beyond their teen years.
Getting into college, getting federal financial aid, pursuing various career paths — all of these things can be limited by a criminal charge, even if your child isn't convicted and even if it happened while they were a minor. That is why I take my defense a step further.
Once we have gotten charges dismissed, secured a not guilty verdict or worked out a deal with the prosecution, I will take steps to expunge all record of the arrest, charge or conviction from your child's record. When they are asked if they have ever been charged or convicted of a crime, they can answer "no."
