  Weapons Offenses

           In the State of New Jersey, weapons offenses are strictly enforced, and due to the Graves Act, having a firearm in your possession illegally can mean mandatory incarceration for a minimum of three years before being eligible for parole on a five year sentence.  And using a weapon in the commission of primary crime can mean a sentence enhancement  for that crime.

           Weapons sometimes become in issue in Domestic Violence matters when law-abiding citizens have their weapons seized pursuant to a Temporary Restraining Order, and must go through a Forfeiture Hearing to have those weapons returned to them.  Not having the proper representation in these matters can mean that you may no longer be able to own your firearms even though you have never been charged with a crime.

            If you have been arrested for a crime involving any weapons offense or have had your weapons seized pursuant to a Domestic Violence Restraining Order, please give us a call to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.

"Mr Benevento really goes to bat for his clients and it really showed in the court room. He was able to get my case down graded big time to the point where he even received praise from the Judge. The prosecution even told him he should become an expert. I highly recommend him as an attorney!!"

"If you are looking for an attorney that always has your best interests in mind, then look no further - you've found him.

Chris is a dedicated legal professional that strives for excellence and has helped me with my case every step of the way. His communication is superb, and all of my concerns have been addressed almost instantly, as he really helped guide my wife and I through a particularly rough situation.

Chris takes things a step further, and really boils complex legal issues down for the layperson, which has taken so much of the "mysticism" out of the legal process for us. I'm extremely pleased with his services, and would recommend to him to anyone"
