Atlantic County Firearms Attorneys
Gun Defense Lawyers in Atlantic City, New Jersey
If you live in Atlantic County and you’ve been charged with a firearms offense or you are interested in legally obtaining a handgun, rifle, or shotgun, the experienced weapons attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm are ready to help. Gun laws in New Jersey control all aspects of owning firearms: from buying, transporting, possessing and discharging guns. The firearms laws are complex and carry stiff penalties – so although an individual can navigate the statutes, regulations, and local ordinances alone, it is a good idea to discuss your gun related issues with an experienced attorney who is familiar with New Jersey’s firearms laws. For example, if you were involved in a domestic dispute and a gun was involved, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office may not only seize all of your firearms and your firearms identification purchaser card, but it may also charge you with criminal offenses that could result in jail time. On the other hand, if you live in Atlantic County and you are interested in legally purchasing a firearm, you will need to complete an application and submit it to the appropriate authorities. In either situation, the firearms attorneys at the Tormey Law firm are available to help including in Absecon, Egg Harbor, Hamilton, Atlantic City, and Galloway. Contact our offices now for a free initial consultation at (201)-614-2474.
Here is a review from one of our firearms offense cases:
“Worth every penny. Words can not express how pleased I was with my decision to retain Christopher Perry. I had never had any legal issues in the past and had no idea how to proceed. Mr. Perry explained every step with patience and attention to detail, his knowledge and professionalism immediately eased my anxiety. He was attentive and answered every one of my questions immediately to the fullest extent of his abilities. The outcome of my case was ideal and I firmly believe it was entirely due to having Mr. Perry as my attorney. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who may find themselves in need of his services and would not hesitate to use him in the future. Words can not express how impressed I was with his services through the entire 9 month process. Look no further you have found your attorney.”
