Our Representation in Gun / Firearms Prosecutions

We handle the defense against any charges involving guns or firearms, including:

    • Illegal possession, sale or transfer of a gun/firearm
    • Setting up a sham or straw purchase
    • Carrying, possessing or owning a firearm or gun without the required permit
    • Using a weapon in the commission of another crime, such as robbery, burglary or assault
    • Theft of weapons
    • Possession of illegal weapons
    • Owning or possessing a weapon as a convicted felon

When you hire us to defend you against a gun or firearm charge, we will conduct an exhaustive investigation of the facts and circumstances of your arrest, looking first to verify that law enforcement officers had probable cause to make any search, seizure or arrest. We will also confirm that you were properly advised of your Miranda rights before making any statements to police. If police came to your house based on a tip, we will question the legitimacy and credibility of the informant when appropriate. No potential defense is left unanswered.
