Weapon Possession Charges in New Jersey

Work with a Skilled & Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer

Weapon charges are taken very seriously by prosecutors and judges in New Jersey. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grants us the right to bear arms, but this right is regulated by various state and federal statutes. If you are found to be in possession of a firearm without a lawful permit, you could face criminal charges and prison time. Using a weapon in the commission of a crime will significantly increase any potential penalties associated with that offense.

Do not let your future be jeopardized by unfounded or exaggerated weapon charges. Involve a New Jersey weapon possession defense lawyer who will assert your rights and protect your interests.
