Many gun and weapons charges are brought in conjunction with other criminal charges, such as drug charges. Though this is not always the case, the prosecution is quick to add on additional charges whenever they have deemed that additional crimes took place. Whether you have been arrested for one crime and were subsequently charged with a gun crime after the discovery of weapons or are facing gun crime charges on their own, an experienced criminal defense attorney can work to protect your rights and keep you out of jail.

Felon in Possession of a Firearm
One of the more serious gun crime issues arises when a felon is found in possession of a firearm. If you have been convicted of a felony crime, you are a felon and prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition. Conviction of this crime could carry a punishment of many years in prison, as well as lifetime prohibition of possessing a firearm.
In addition to handling gun crime charges, our firm handles all criminal cases involving weapons and crimes allegedly committed with weapons.
