I recently hired Mike to appeal my carry permit denial! In the process of waiting for a court date, I had an incident where the state tried to revoke my FID card and forfeit my firearms! Mike represented me on both accounts and not only did he get the forfeiture denied but he got my carry permit granted! Mike went up to bat and came home with a grand slam! He was resourceful, attentive, understanding, and work with me every step of the way! Money well spent! Any gun problems he is your attorney for sure !! Thanks, Mike! Merry Christmas to you and your family.- Former Client

What Are the Different Types of Assault in New Jersey?
There are two kinds of assault: simple assault and aggravated assault. The difference between the two may mean you wind up with a fine or probation compared to 10 years in prison.
A person commits simple assault in one of three ways:
- Recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally causing injury to someone else;
- Negligently causing injury to someone else by using a deadly weapon; or
- Attempting, by physical threat, to put someone else in fear of imminent serious injury.
Simple assault is charged as a disorderly persons offense unless it occurs in a fight between two consenting people, in which case it is charged as a petty disorderly persons offense. If you are facing a violent crimes charge, you should hire a skilled assault defense lawyer in New Jersey.
The law identifies no less than 11 different ways a person may commit aggravated assault.
The more common examples include:
- Causing bodily injury with a deadly weapon;
- Pointing a firearm at a person whether or not it is loaded;
- Committing a simple assault against certain public officials such as a train conductor or a teacher;
- Causing bodily injury while fleeing the police; or
- Causing bodily injury by starting a fire or causing an explosion.
When a person is charged with aggravated assault, competent counsel may be able to convince the police, prosecutors, or judge that the circumstances warrant the crime to be treated as a simple assault.
