Here is a review from one of the many satisfied clients of the Tormey Law Firm LLC:

“I was extremely happy with the performance, support and professionalism of Travis Tormey in my son’s recent court case. Before we even hired him he consulted with us via telephone and spent a considerable amount of time answering our questions and giving us additional information. Once hired, he was truthful at all times at what my son was up against. Travis truly worked to secure what was in my son’s best interest. He got charges reduced and fines lessened. I have gone on to recommend Travis to 2 other friends who have been just as happy with him.” 5 stars – Ellen

Search Warrants in NJ Gun Cases

There are two most common scenarios regarding the issuance of a search warrant which results in a firearms offense in New Jersey. The first revolves around a motor vehicle stop. If the driver refuses to consent to the search of a motor vehicle, sometimes law enforcement will impound the vehicle and attempt to obtain a search warrant from a Judge in order to legally search the motor vehicle. In order to do so, the officer must articulate the probable cause and grounds for the search warrant being issued.

The second most common scenario with regards to search warrants is for the search of a home. These cases typically involve drugs because law enforcement has allegedly observed drug transactions occurring at a certain location where they believe drugs are being sold. Sometimes these cases involve an undercover officer or, more commonly, an informant who is working for the police.

In either scenario, the State must obtain a valid search warrant for the home or the motor vehicle. There must be legal grounds for the issuance of that search warrant. In addition, the search warrant must specifically spell out the areas to be searched. For example, if a search warrant grants the police access to search a home but does not include a shed or secondary dwelling behind the home, then that could be grounds to suppress any evidence obtained when they searched that area which was not granted or specified on the search warrant they obtained.

Our former prosecutors used to obtain search warrants when they worked for the State of NJ. Now let them examine the search warrant in your case to determine if there are any issues or inaccuracies that could potentially lead to a motion to suppress evidence and have the gun charge against you dismissed.
