New Jersey Gun Crime Defense Lawyers
Local Gun Lawyers with offices in Hackensack, Morristown, Newark NJ
Though the right to bear arms is granted to every citizen, our nation still has strict laws regarding guns and serious penalties for their misuse. For example, regardless of what type of crime a person commits, some states have automatic extra sentencing penalties if a firearm was involved in the commission of the crime.
Furthermore, many people, once convicted of a crime, are prohibited from possessing firearms. A felon in possession of a firearm can face probation or parole revocation, and additional jail time for the possession charge. If you are facing a gun-related charge, such as unlawful possession of a firearm, you absolutely need to take your situation seriously. New Jersey has some of the harshest gun laws in the United States, and you are facing extensive jail time. Because laws concerning guns are so complex, only an experienced felony defense attorney can give you the best chance of beating your gun charge.
