Understanding Weapons Charges

Weapons offenses are often considered felony crimes, carrying very serious penalties that may include large fines, probation, and significant jail or prison time. If a weapon was used in the commission of another crime, maximized sentencing may occur. Weapons charges that are considered a federal crime are especially serious. Examples of specific acts that may lead to a weapons charge include:

  • Unlawful possession of a firearm
  • Possession of an illegal weapon
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Use of a weapon in the commission of a crime
  • Unlawful import or export of a weapon
  • Weapons trafficking
  • Fraud in obtaining a firearm
  • Felon in possession of a firearm

You have rights, and our firm knows how to protect them. We will thoroughly investigate the charges against you to understand the specific circumstances leading to charges being filed. Then we will explore all options that could lead to reduced charges or a dismissal. We will also work to minimize any penalties you may be facing - such as a lengthy prison sentence - to minimize the impact criminal charges will have on your life.

Prepared. Focused. Aggressive.
