Burlington County NJ Weapons Charges Lawyer
Gun Charges Defense Attorney in Southern New Jersey
Weapons, and guns in particular, are among the most contentious political issues in the United States. Due to America’s federalist system, state legislators are provided with the discretion to create and enact guns laws that reflect the sentiments of the majority of their state’s residents. In New Jersey, lawmakers have implemented some of the most harsh guns and weapons laws in the nation. Law enforcement bodies dedicate extensive resources to enforcing New Jersey’s weapons laws, and courts vigorously prosecute alleged weapons offenders. Those convicted of weapons offenses are exposed to significant jail time, and in certain cases, mandatory minimum terms of imprisonment with periods of parole ineligibility, which are required under New Jersey’s Graves Act. When you are charged with a weapons or firearms offense in New Jersey, enlisting the right attorney can truly spell the difference between a positive and negative outcome.
