Middlesex County Gun Charge Lawyer

Charged with a firearms offense? Find out about all of your potential defenses by consulting with a Middlesex County gun charge lawyer.

Gun charges take many forms in New Jersey, but any weapons offense can threaten your future, finances, and freedom. Protecting yourself means fighting the charge leveled against you, and it’s essential to utilize the most powerful defense possible.

By working with a Middlesex County firearms offense attorney from Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC., this defense is exactly what you’ll get. We never back down—no matter what the prosecution throws at us—and we’ll fight for your rights and the dismissal of the charges against you.

New Jersey Weapon Charges

While New Jersey state law recognizes a number of gun offenses, all are serious and can lead to imprisonment and fines. While some of these crimes are charged for the simple possession of a gun in particular circumstances, others increase the severity of what would have been a lesser offense.

For example, an assault charge is elevated to assault with a deadly weapon when a gun is involved. Just as the severity of the offense increases, so does the severity of the punishments. In many cases, these are indictable offenses, which are essentially felonies.

The lowest-level indictable offense is a fourth-degree offense, which carries the possibility of up to a $10,000 fine and up to eighteen months in prison. Gun charges can certainly be higher-degree offenses, however, and the legal penalties only increase with the degree of the offense.

These are just a few of the crimes that your Middlesex County gun charge lawyer will have experience defending clients against:

  • Concealed weapon charges
  • Unlawful possession of a weapon
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Assault with a deadly weapon

Additional Factors in Firearms Charges

The exact weapons crime you are charged with will depend on a number of factors, including the location where you were arrested and whether you had a permit for the firearm involved. For example, concealing a weapon while in a public school can be far more serious than carrying a gun in your car.

However, if this is your first offense, then this can sometimes work in your favor, especially if you are truly remorseful for what happened. A first offense can make it easier to get a lenient sentence or a plea bargain, but this should never be your first option.

Instead, our firm will explore all options to win your acquittal or to obtain a full dismissal of your weapons charge.

At Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC., our objective is always to clear your name of the charges against you. We want you to be able to return to the life you knew before the arrest—and that means without a criminal record.
