Pushing Back Against Weapons Charges
New Jersey has strict laws about who can own a weapon, what types of weapon you can own and how that weapon can be used and carried. Violating these laws is a fairly common occurrence, but if you do, you could be charged with a weapons crime that carries harsh penalties. Many of these offenses are called Graves Act crimes with mandatory state prison sentences and periods of parole ineligibility.
Our founder, attorney Law Offices of Michael H. Schreiber, L.L.C., is on the forefront of defending all Graves Act crimes. He has successfully won numerous Graves Act Waiver appeals when the prosecutor was requiring state prison sentences, and he obtained pre-trial intervention or probation for his clients.
Attorney Schreiber has decades of experience providing aggressive legal guidance to people in Atlantic City and across South Jersey who have been charged with weapon or gun crimes. As a state-certified expert in criminal defense matters, he will put his knowledge and experience to work for you.
