We have many big wins with regard to our defense of criminal weapons charges. Consider just these few examples:
J.C. – Passaic County
Client was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon for not having a carry permit. The State was looking for the client to do 5 years in prison. He was also charged with theft and burglary because he was alleged to have broke into his roommates bedroom to steal his weapons. We filed a motion to dismiss the indictment and even though the State fought hard, it was granted and all charges were dismissed.
J.S. – Mercer County
Client was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon for not having a carry permit. We fought the case hard and over time, the plea offer became less and less and less. In the end, we were able to get the State to completely dismiss the charges against the client.
R.M. – Middlesex County
Client was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon for not having a carry permit. His first lawyer told him that there was no way he could win his case. He fired that lawyer and hired us. We took the case to trial. 2 out of the 3 charges were dismissed but the jury hung one the last charge most likely due to confusing jury instructions. Instead of going back to trial, the client opted to take probation. Besides avoiding 5 years in prison, he was also able to keep his job.
C.S. – Ocean County
Client was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon for not having a carry permit. Once again, the State was looking for him to do prison time. After much litigation, we were able to get the felony charges dismissed. He paid a small fine and did not even have to serve probation.
D.C. – Union County
Client was charged with falsification for failing to disclose an arrest on his gun permit application. We were able to get the felony charges against him dismissed through a diversion program.
