Firearms

revolverIf you have been charged with a firearm related offense, you should immediately contact a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Immediate intervention by a skilled criminal lawyer can protect your rights. Raven Law has extensive experience handling firearm cases.  A criminal lawyer provides qualified and knowledgeable legal representation you will need when disputing these types of cases. If you retain our office, we will thoroughly investigate, closely advise you, and aggressively defend your case.

Firearms are not only part of other crimes, they can often be crimes in themselves. Firearms that were once legal or permissible in some contexts can now be declared illegal or may be illegal in certain situations. Where you are, what prior criminal history you have, what type of gun you have, whether you have a restraining order against you, and how you store or transport your firearms all can affect the legality of firearm possession.

POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES:
-Jail sentences
-Prison sentences
-Significant fines
-Probation
-Deprivation of personal property
-Loss of employment
-Preclusion from various jobs
-Discharge from military
-Prohibition against owning firearms (possibly for life!)

AFTER A CONVICTION, CAN I EVER REGAIN THE RIGHT TO POSSESS A FIREARM?

Some, but not all, criminal convictions can be remedied so that a person can once again possess a firearm. However, that answer will depend on the following factors:
1. The precise conviction and whether it was a misdemeanor or felony.
2. Whether or not a sentence of probation was imposed, and whether that probation was served successfully.
3. The time elapsed since conviction.
4. The convicted person’s conduct after the sentence was served
