There are several defense strategies we can use to fight your case, and we will customize our approach based on your unique circumstances. We will carefully review your case and determine how to best proceed when fighting your weapons charges.
Types of Weapons Charges
Weapons charges don’t always mean you have harmed someone. They could simply be charges of illegally possessing a firearm or carrying one illegally. Other types of gun crimes include:
You may be charged if someone informs the police of the crime, your possession of a firearm or authorities may find the weapon during a traffic stop. Depending on the nature of the crime and the weapon, you could be looking at a misdemeanor or felony charge.
In addition, if you’re convicted of a domestic assault crime, whether it involved a weapon or not, you cannot legally possess a firearm for five years after your release date or your probation.
