A conviction for a gun or weapons offense in New Jersey can have serious ramifications. If you are convicted, you face mandatory jail time under the Graves Act.

We defend clients facing all types of weapons charges in New Jersey including:

  • Possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose
  • Unlawful possession of a semi-automatic or assault weapon
  • Convicted felon in possession of a firearm (certain persons offense)

New Jersey Gun Permits

New Jersey weapons laws require a lifetime Firearm Purchaser card in order to purchase and own rifles, shotguns, handguns, and ammunition. In addition, New Jersey law requires firearm owners to obtain a separate handgun permit from the local police department for each handgun owned and renew such permits after their expiration (90 days). Additionally, the New Jersey Legislature has enacted new laws that restrict the purchase of handguns to one purchase for every 30 days.

At Hanlon Dunn Robertson Schwartz, we understand how grueling gun permit procedures can be in New Jersey. We provide effective legal advice and efficient assistance through the permitting process.

New Jersey Civil Weapons Forfeiture Laws

Certain felony criminal convictions and even some civil infractions can result in the confiscation of your firearms and revocation of your weapons licenses or permits. Weapons forfeiture can keep you from participating in your hobbies and from maintaining your collection. Even more serious, if you carry a gun or other weapon as part of your job, weapons forfeiture can cost you your career.

Our criminal defense attorneys provide effective defense representation tailored to your situation — whether that means tirelessly defending you against felony criminal charges or aggressively representing you in a civil matter that could result in gun forfeiture.
