“Gun charges are complicated matters, and our firm knows all of the defenses that can potentially lead these charges to be dismissed.”

gun charges attorneyNJ Gun Charges Defense Lawyers

The Tormey Law Firm is composed of experienced criminal defense attorneys who have been representing clients throughout New Jersey for years charged with illegal gun charges. These include unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and even (far less seriously) illegal possession of a BB gun.

“The most important element in fighting any case is understanding what the prosecution is going to try to hold against you. We need to be aware of the case that the State will attempt to make, so that we can diffuse it when it comes to trial. This comes from experience within trial law, and years of actually fighting cases instead of routinely accepting plea bargains.”

We have current prosecutors on staff at The Tormey Law firm, which allows us to have a very clear knowledge of both sides of the law.  We know what to expect, and we know how to fight against it.

When the prosecution understand that you can beat the case against them, they are far more likely to offer a great deal to get rid of potential criminal charges, and waive any chance of jail-time.  Still, you need to demonstrate that their case can be defeated in order to get these results.

Feel free to call our firm, free of charge, for an initial consultation about how we can help you to fight your case.
