Passaic County NJ Weapons Charges Defense Attorney

Criminal Defense Lawyer with Offices in Totowa and Denville, New Jersey

New Jersey has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Under The “Graves Act,” a defendant charged with a firearms offense, even if he/she has no prior record, faces mandatory state prison time and a mandatory period of parole ineligibility if convicted.

If you have been arrested on a gun or related weapons charge in New Jersey, you need straight answers from a criminal defense attorney who has specific experience handling those types of offenses. As a former special deputy attorney general and assistant county prosecutor, Alissa D. Hascup handled numerous cases involving all types of gun and weapons offenses. She uses her understanding of what it takes to successfully prosecute these cases to find and exploit the weaknesses in the State’s case against you. She also has a thorough understanding of the flexibility prosecutors have to negotiate reduced charges, explore alternative sentencing recommendations, and/or make use of the State’s pre-trial intervention (PTI) program.
