We Can Defend Your Gun Crimes

Facing a gun charge is a serious matter. You may rightfully possess the weapon or the allegation may be that you were carrying an illegal firearm. A weapons conviction carries steep consequences. However, there are valid defenses that may prove helpful with experienced counsel to guide you.

Don't make the mistake of talking to the police before talking with a lawyer. Each of our attorneys has 30 years of experience in criminal defense. We can help you prevent mistakes or misrepresentations before they occur.

Holding The Prosecution To Their High Burden

Prosecutors must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. That is a high standard of proof and if unsure about whether they have enough evidence, many prosecutors are willing to negotiate more favorable terms in lieu of going to court.

Possession of the weapon is often disputed and a successful defense can be mounted against charges based solely on the question of possession. For example, did the incident occur in a car with multiple occupants? If so, then possession becomes a little less clear cut.

We can evaluate your case and determine what the strengths and weaknesses are so that you have a realistic outlook before it continues.

State And Federal Weapons Defense

We can defend clients charged with a variety of weapons crimes including guns, knives, crossbows and the like in state or federal court. Complications can arise in weapons cases. For example, the federal prosecutor may combine weapons charges with a drug conspiracy charge or aggravated assault. An experienced attorney can assist clients with the complexities of federal weapons charges.
