NEW JERSEY HANDGUN POSSESSION LAWYER
Passaic County Gun Permit Lawyer Defending Against Possession Charges
New Jersey has made it a high priority to crack down on individuals who possess firearms without a license. As a result, New Jersey has some of the most stringent gun laws in the United States. Unlawful possession of a handgun is a second-degree crime. Further, under the Graves Act, people convicted of this crime face mandatory imprisonment and a minimum term of parole ineligibility. It is not relevant if you are licensed to carry your handgun in another state. If you are not licensed to carry your handgun in New Jersey, you can still face up to 10 years in prison for possessing your firearm.
With everything that is at stake in these cases, you need a lawyer who is able to take a close look at the evidence and mount the best possible defense to these allegations. For years, the attorneys and staff of Maynard Law Office, LLC, have protected the rights of criminal defendants facing weapons charges and other serious crimes. Based in Morristown, we defend people across Northern New Jersey and beyond.
Taking Decisive Action in High-Stakes Criminal Litigation
In order to prove unlawful possession of a handgun, the state must show beyond a reasonable doubt that you (1) possessed a handgun and (2) that you did not have a license or permit to possess this handgun. In order to overcome these allegations, we will look at every potential defense, such as whether or not the police had probable cause to search you. There may be evidence to show that you did not possess the handgun in question. Your charges may fall within certain narrow exceptions to the law. Our New Jersey handgun possession attorneys will do whatever they can within the law to help you achieve a favorable outcome to your case.
