Need lawyer for NJ gun charge

NJ Gun lawyers

Gun charges are some of the most serious cases we have in New Jersey. That’s because our gun laws are so strict. As a result, it is imperative that you hire a lawyer who knows NJ gun laws and how to protect their clients rights. Our lawyers focus their practice on NJ gun cases as we handle more firearms cases than almost any law firm in the state of New Jersey. Therefore, our lawyers are experienced and equipped to fight your case in court.

Here are some cases our NJ gun lawyers successfully handled for clients of the Tormey Law Firm LLC:

A Few of our Many Gun Case Victories

From New York, Charged in a Motor Vehicle

A New York resident was driving with a friend when they were pulled over for a motor vehicle violation and the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Our client had an illegal handgun on his waistband and marijuana in the trunk of his motor vehicle. In addition to that, he interfered with the firearm on his waistband by trying to throw it during his arrest. Ultimately, he was charged with drug possession in addition to unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose and a prohibited weapons offense. Even though he was interfering with a firearm on his waistband, the circumstances of the case coupled with the Defendant’s background led to resolution by way of entry into PTI.

Domestic Violence Search Resulting in Charges

A New Jersey resident went to a child support hearing. After the hearing, his ex-girlfriend filed for a Restraining Order on that same day for allegations that were later found unsubstantiated and ultimately dismissed. At the time the Order was issued, a search warrant was also issued. On that same evening, a search of our client’s residence was conducted and local police firearms that were locked/stored away, including his lawfully purchased rifle from several years ago. Despite our client being the legal owner of the firearm, the law changed, and the firearm was deemed illegal to possess. Nonetheless, he was admitted into PTI and moreover, was actually terminated early from the program, without any objection by the State. Accordingly, possession of an assault rifle did not preclude entry into PTI. Here, our client was charged with possession of large capacity ammunition magazine and unlawful possession of a weapon because of his possession of an assault firearm.

Pennsylvania Resident Arrested while Traveling through New Jersey

Additionally, we had a client who was a resident of Pennsylvania that inadvertently was traveling through New Jersey. Specifically, he was driving back home from work and his GPS rerouted him due to roadwork. Nevertheless, his car was stopped for a traffic violation and his firearm was seized. However, because our client did not possess a valid New Jersey permit, he was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, contrary to N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5B and other related gun charges. The case was resolved with PTI because of our strong advocacy and the evidence we presented to the State.

Came from Texas, Improperly Transporting

We also had a client that was a resident of Texas, who joined her friend on a road trip to New York to accompany her friend who was moving to the metro area for a new job. As the women drove through New Jersey, they were pulled over for improper vehicle registration. Upon inquiry by the police officer, our client advised the officer that there was a firearm in the vehicle. She further directed the officer to the loaded handgun in the glove compartment. Consequently, she was arrested because she improperly transported a weapon in the State of New Jersey without having the proper permit to do so. Here, our client entered a period of PTI for twelve months.

Arrested with an Unloaded Pistol from Virginia

Similarly, we had a client from Virginia that was in pursuit of a fugitive in New York State. By way of background, she came to the area with her boss who owns a bail bond company. Due to time constraints, and in a last-minute decision to assist her boss, she went with him to collect a fugitive on short notice. However, upon approaching the George Washington Bridge, in Leonia, they were pulled over for a motor vehicle violation. Upon inquiry by the police officer, she stated that there was a weapon in the vehicle. She had an unloaded pistol under the passenger seat of the car and a concealed carry permit from Virginia. In this matter, our client was placed under arrest because her carry permit from Virginia was not valid in New Jersey. She had no prior criminal history. Based on the facts of the case, the evidence presented and plea negotiations, our client was entered into PTI for a period of 24 months.
