A: Absolutely. The law in New Jersey mandates that every juvenile defendant be represented by an attorney. Families who are indigent (i.e. that cannot afford an attorney) can have a public defender appointed to represent their child. Where indigency cannot be established, a parent or guardian must retain a lawyer for their child.
