Aggressively Defending Offenses Involving Weapons

Weapons crimes are offenses involving the possession, distribution, sale, or use of a weapon. This could be as simple as illegally carrying a weapon where it is prohibited or as complex as a crime carried out using a deadly weapon. This can include both legal weapons such as a knife or gun, or illegal weapons including grenades, automatic rifles, and more.

A few other weapons-related crimes we defend include:

  • Assault with a weapon
  • Unlawful possession of a weapon
  • Weapons trafficking
  • Unlawful distribution of a weapon
  • Unlawful sale of a weapon
  • Minor in possession of a weapon
  • Concealing a weapon

    "I recommend him and would use him again"
    I was in a super stressful situation in which a driver was claiming I caused damaged to their vehicle while driving amongst other things..Mr Scura answered my initial phone call at 7pm at night, and was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He handled everything professionally, and in a timely manner always responding to all of my questions and obtained a very fair and optimal outcome in my case. I’d like to also mention he took all of the stress out of the situation for me at a time in my life that was immensely stressful! I recommend him and would use him again ( but hopefully don’t have to)

    "I highly recommended Attorney Joseph S. Scura"
    I hired Joseph S. Scura for my criminal case in Superior Court. Joseph was able to downgrade this case to municipal court and at the end have the matter dismissed. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Joseph was very supportive and never disappointing from the very start. I was able to reach out to him any time by text message or phone call with timely responses. His suggestions were very positive and genuine. I highly recommended Attorney Joseph S. Scura and his team for any criminal case.

    "Joe Is An Excellent Attorney"
    Joe is an excellent attorney whose phenomenal research and analytical skills, and ability to anticipate the opposing party's next move help him and his client choose the best strategy for each aspect of the case. He helped me settle a case in my favor.
    "Patient and Respectful"
    My dog and I were in serious trouble, and Joe Scura negotiated the best possible solution for both of us. He remained patient and respectful with me during what turned out to be a lengthy ordeal, but it ended well.
    "Extremely knowledgeable Professional"
    I couldn't recommend Joe Scura and his team more highly. Five stars is not enough. An extremely knowledgeable professional who follows up promptly and maintains contact. He patiently guided me through the legal system and worked tirelessly to turn a potentially serious situation into a dismissal without trial. I hope that there will never be another situation where I would need an attorney, but if so, I would call upon Joe's services without hesitation.
    "Total Professionalism"
    Mr. Scura handled my court case in Hunterdon County recently with total professionalism. He made a very difficult situation for me less emotional and was able to help me reduce the charges and reach a settlement without further court appearances.
    "Highly Intelligent and Quick Witted"
    Joe Scura is an outstanding lawyer. He's highly intelligent and quick witted. We won our case by Joe getting it dismissed. I'd hire him again in a second. I'd highly recommend his services to anyone in need.
    "Highly Recommend to Anyone"
    He went above, and beyond to make sure all my needs were met. He truly cares about his clients and works hard to do what’s best for them. I would highly recommend to anyone who is ever in need of a lawyer.
