Gun Crimes

Legal Representation for Gun Crimes

Although weapons charges and their penalties vary from state to state, gun crimes are still serious charges and can result in jail time and fines when not handled appropriately. At Owens Criminal Defense, we work with clients who are facing gun charges. As criminal defense lawyers we help clients navigate their charges and fight for their rights.

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.

Prosecutors fight with the weight of the state behind them. They are driven to prosecute. Our team is driven by our clients and their unique lives. Each has a family and a life to protect. We understand and empathize. We are on your side. We will fight the prosecution to the end- We are your fearless advocate.

Our strategy is to seize the initiative from the start, and never relent. What this means for you is that we will demand the government comply with the rules of criminal procedure and respect your constitutional rights. When the government fails to do so, we will file motions and put the government’s non-compliance before a judge. This strategy is what we call aggressive defense. This strategy over the years has proven to keep the government on the defensive and yields extremely favorable results.

We approach each case as if it is going to proceed to trial. This means we investigate the case fully and thoroughly to find all of the errors in the police reports. This is essential to developing our defensive theory. We will visit the alleged crime scene, speak with witnesses, research case law and statutes, file motions and argue the motions to a judge. It is through this process that we develop our theory of the case.

We are skilled and relentless trial attorneys. We have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including several murder cases. We have won Not Guilty verdicts, including Not Guilty in a murder trial where we used a self-defense theory. We will be prepared and ready for war should your case proceed to trial.

Please call us for a free consultation. We travel and fight in all courts. You will speak directly with our lead a attorney, not a legal assistant. We will discuss potential defenses to your case and we will describe how we can work together to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
