While a weapons offense can be the only charge filed against you, they can also come piled on top of each other, or in addition to other types of criminal charges. Police and prosecutors can take what seems to be a single crime and break it down into many charges. Worse, if convicted of these charges, you can be sentenced to serve punishments consecutively. In other words, the penalties can add up fast.
At the law firm of Bailey & Orozco, we have more than 30 years of experience in the criminal justice system. We are prepared to put in the work to see that these charges don't stay piled up against you. We are here to protect your rights.

New Jersey Assault Deadly Weapon Attorneys
People accused of gun and weapon crimes in Newark and throughout New Jersey can turn to our law firm for help.
Guns are not the only weapons that can lead to serious charges. Among other things, knives, brass knuckles, slingshots and blackjacks are also considered dangerous weapons. Even items that are not technically weapons, such as screwdrivers or baseball bats, can lead to weapons charges if they are possessed for the purpose of hurting or intimidating someone, rather then their normal intended use.
Charges for weapon and gun crimes include: Possession of the Weapon, Possession of the Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, Possession of a Gun with Drugs, Assault with a Deadly Weapon. We can defend against all weapons charges filed against you.
