Skilled Defense From a Former Prosecutor
Weapons charges may result in the police filing an application to remove all weapons from our clients' possession, whether the weapons were used during the course of criminal activity or not. As former prosecutors, our attorneys thoroughly understand the arguments prosecutors and police use to confiscate firearms and other weapons. We use this insight to effectively negotiate criminal matters and to attempt to secure the return of the firearms to you.
Options for First-Time Offenders
If you are a first time criminal offender, you may qualify for New Jersey's Pre-trial Intervention Program (PTI). This diversion program acts as a period of probation, after which charges are dismissed (assuming full compliance with the terms and conditions of the PTI program). Learn more about this alternative to prison by contacting our firm.
