Weapons Seized After a Restraining Order Was Filed

If your weapons were seized based on a temporary restraining order being filed, we can help. Depending on what happens with your matter, it’s possible that your weapons could be returned to you. But that doesn’t automatically happen and is up to the County Prosecutor’s office. As a result, it’s important to have an attorney assist you throughout this process. Luckily, Mr. Skiendziul has assisted numerous clients with weapons returns throughout New Jersey over the last 10 years and is ready and able to assist you now. Contact the office for immediate assistance.

Here is a review from one of our many satisfied restraining order clients whose case was successfully handled by Mr. Skiendziul:

“I don’t even know where to begin as I’m incredibly relieved after all of the stress. I just needed to say thank you! Jeff was phenomenal today, we won the case and the order is being dismissed! You know I was incredibly nervous, I had mixed emotions leading up to it, did not speak with you too much regarding specifics, but had to keep my faith in you guys and I was not disappointed at all! The other attorney tried twisting and turning things to get the outcome they desired but Jeff was calm and collected and overall amazing. Thank you again!!”  – Greg
