At Malamut & Associates, we understand how frustrating being denied a gun permit can be. Every state differs, but New Jersey gun permit denials are appealed in a trial before a New Jersey Superior Court Judge. A gun permit appeal in New Jersey most commonly involves the filing of legal briefs and an oral argument. While a lawyer is not required, attempting an appeal without experienced counsel may result in another denial. You must file an appropriate appeal immediately. If not appealed timely, you can forever lose your right to own a firearm. The hearings can be complicated. We have expertise in litigating these matters. We believe strongly in the constitution and your second amendment right to bear arms. If left untested, you are allowing the State to deny your rights based on the decision or opinion of a police chief. These decisions can be wrong. Denials can be based on incorrect legal analysis and criteria, or may just be the incorrect arbitrary decision of a bureaucrat. Malamut & Associates has retired county prosecutors, current municipal court prosecutors, and career defense lawyers on staff. All Malamut & Associates attorneys collaborate in order to get our clients the best possible results. We move quickly to recognize and exploit the weaknesses of the prosecution’s case. Before retaining another law firm, you owe it to yourself to speak to us and see what we can do for you. No firm can guide you through the system better than Malamut & Associates.

  • The application was not filled out correctly, was incomplete, or contained false information

  • Mental health issues

The above are only a few example of why a gun permit may be denied. There are many reasons for denial. If denied, you do have options. We can help you. Our attorneys can work with you in order to clear up some of the issues that could result in a denial before you apply or as your appeal is being prepared.
