Examples of Weapons Charges

Although most weapons charges involve firearms, we also handle matters relating to knives, switchblades, billy clubs, martial arts objects and other weapons. Situations involving guns that lead to weapons charges include:

  • Possession of a gun without a permit
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Discharging a firearm in violation of local ordinances or a negligent discharge
  • Unlawful sale of a firearm
  • Use of a gun in committing a crime or assault with a deadly weapon is very serious

Our firm consults with firearms experts to build strong cases against any of these charges. We have been successful in having charges reduced or dismissed as a result of our efforts several times in the past.

How a Lawyer Can Help

Our attorneys make sure that the charge actually matches the circumstance. For example, if a client is charged with possessing an assault weapon, we make sure that the weapon in question really is an assault weapon. We are often able to demonstrate no constructive possession, keeping the person from being charged with actual possession when a gun was found in his or her car. We build a picture of a solid citizen, getting character references, or demonstrating the lack of a criminal record.

Consequences of Conviction

There are many reasons to avoid conviction on a weapons charge, including the probability that you will lose the right to keep a gun or other weapon in the future. Other penalties include:

  • Fines
  • Incarceration in jail or prison
  • Community service requirements
  • Lengthy probation
  • Forfeiture of the firearm

Our attorneys make sure that the charge actually matches the circumstance. For example, if a client is charged with a negligent discharge of a gun, we make sure that the circumstances in question was in fact illegal. And we will build a strong defense by getting character references demonstrating the lack of a criminal record and through the work of our investigators and expert witnesses.
