Types Of Weapons Offenses

Weapons-related charges can take an add-on nature when a firearm was used in the commission of another crime. They are also stand-alone charges for carrying a concealed weapon or if a felon is found in possession of a firearm. Regardless of the underlying situation, these offenses carry hefty penalties.

Possible Charges And Potential Defenses

Weapons charges carry harsh criminal penalties, especially when the charge is linked to another alleged crime such as a drug trafficking offense or robbery. Our lawyers are prepared to defend you against state or federal weapons charges, including:

  • Felon in possession of a firearm or handgun
  • Possession of a firearm after a domestic violence conviction
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Violations of conceal and carry laws
  • Possession of a stolen firearm
  • Possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime

We start out conducting our own investigation into what allegedly happened. We are often able to identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case. How did the police discover the weapon in question? Was there sufficient probable cause to support a search warrant? Were your Fourth Amendment rights violated during an illegal police search? We will explore these questions and more as we build a defense case for you.
