Gun Charges

Asserting An Aggressive Defense Against Gun Charges

These are difficult times to be a proud gun owner in the U.S. Although you have the right to bear arms, law enforcement and anti-gun activists can make it challenging to assert these rights.

Having a skilled and knowledgeable legal ally is critical whether you have been charged with illegal gun possession, unlawful discharge or another related violation. Since 1983, our attorneys at Testa Heck Testa & White, P.A., have tirelessly advocated for our clients in criminal courts throughout south New Jersey. Our team shares over 150 years of legal experience that we put to work for you.

Understanding Gun Violations And Penalties

Law enforcement agents and prosecutors do not take gun charges lightly, and neither should you. If you are convicted of this type of offense, you could face significant jail or prison time, high fines, and other penalties including losing custody of your children.

In misdemeanor and felony matters, it is important to mount your defense quickly. When you retain us, we will move swiftly to protect your rights and ensure that no corners were cut during your arrest, the investigation and the steps that followed the incident.

Our attorneys are qualified to represent clients facing an array of weapons charges, including:

  • Possession of a firearm by a minor
  • Possession of a firearm without a license
  • Possession of a firearm in a vehicle or school zone
  • Illegal possession of a firearm while on parole or after a domestic violence charge
  • Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm

We have a vast understanding of the state laws and registration requirements that individuals must follow to retain their gun rights. Combining this insight with our knowledge of the criminal process, we develop legal strategies that support your version of events and cast doubt on the prosecution’s arguments.

We can help you establish proof of licensing, compliance with gun safety laws and documentation. It is our goal that you can leave this problem in the past without jeopardizing your Second Amendment rights. Our award-winning attorneys are highly regarded for their legal ability and client-centered representation. You deserve nothing less than exceptional legal counsel when you are confronting this serious criminal matter.
