Gun Crimes

NJ Gun Crimes Criminal Defense Lawyer

In NJ, the last thing you want to do is face a weapons charge on your own. Gun crimes in NJ are taken very seriously and offenders are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The decisions you make following an arrest related to any gun crime will shape the rest of your life. Make the right first choice by contacting NJ criminal defense attorney, Frank T. Luciano.

Mr. Luciano is an expert on NJ’s gun laws and has successfully defended clients in Hackensack, Paterson and Jersey City in the following types of cases:

  • Possession of an illegal firearm (sawed off shotgun, silencer, etc.
  • Armed robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Possession of a handgun without a permit or license
  • Possession of a firearm for illegal purposes
  • Unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon

NJ has some of the most strict gun laws in the country and imposes severe penalties on offenders. Your gun possession could be a second-degree charge with a potential 10-year prison sentence, and many gun crimes come with mandatory minimum incarceration periods without the possibility of parole. Even if you are a first time offender, you cannot risk facing a gun possession charge without an experienced attorney on your team.

Defending Your New Jersey Gun Crime

Depending on the nature of your charge, you could be facing up to a decade in jail. Mr. Luciano’s primary mission is to keep you out of prison and able to continue living your life as you always have. If you’re a first time offender, there may be some diversionary options that Mr. Luciano could recommend for you. If you’ve been convicted previously, you face even stiffer penalties, though you still may be able to avoid jail time if the right arguments are made in your favor.

Most gun possession charges come as a result of other investigations. For example, a drug arrest may lead to an illegal weapons charge, just as a domestic violence report may uncover an illegal possession. In these situations, it’s essential that all procedures used in gathering evidence were followed according to law. Mr. Luciano will fight to have unlawfully obtained evidence dismissed in court.

You will have no way of knowing whether or not you have a strong case without speaking to a skilled attorney first. You likely have more options than you realize, but it’s important that you act immediately. The more time you have, the more defense options will be available to you. To learn more and to begin working on your criminal defense strategy, you are invited to contact Frank T. Luciano today for an initial consultation at 973-471-0004.

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
