If you are convicted of possession of a firearm for unlawful purposes, unlawful possession of a weapon or any other gun or weapons offenses in Union County New Jersey, you will be subject to serious criminal penalties, which can include mandatory prison time, probation, and criminal record consequences.

As mentioned above, New Jersey has some of the harshest gun and weapon laws in the United States, which includes legislation such as the Graves Act that makes certain crimes involving firearms subject to minimum mandatory prison sentences coupled and the No Early Release Act (NERA), which makes violent crimes involving a weapon, such as Robbery subject to periods of parole ineligibility. Our defense firm has extensive experience handling firearm and weapon charges and can work the prosecutor and challenge the state on evidentiary issues to identify and pursue opportunities for an acquittal, dismissal or reduction of your weapon charges.
