If you have been arrested on gun-related charges you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can provide you with full representation and the support of the most experienced lawyer possible.
Are You Facing Weapon Charges?
A weapons charge is a serious matter in Michigan and prosecutors are dedicated to convicting those who have been charged with weapons offenses. If you have been arrested or accused of committing a weapons crime, it is important to protect your legal rights. In Michigan, a felony firearms conviction requires a mandatory two-year minimum prison sentence if it is your first offense and a mandatory five-year minimum prison sentence if it is your second offense. In addition, even if you possess a firearm or other weapon legally, if you use that firearm or weapon in the commission of a felony crime, your potential punishment will be greater under Michigan law. Also, a sentence for felony firearm must be served consecutively with any other sentence. This means that the more common concurrent sentencing cannot apply to felony firearm charges. For this reason, it is extremely important to have high quality defense representation.
Firearms and Weapons Attorney
Depending on the details of the offense, a weapons crime may be charged at the state or federal level. Any crime committed on federal property can be charged as a federal crime as well. Individuals who take weapons to the airport or into government buildings can face very serious penalties, even if they had no intent to harm anyone or commit a crime.
We also defend people against charges such as:
- Possession of an illegal weapon
- Felon in possession of a weapon
- Assault with a dangerous weapon
- Armed burglary or robbery
- Carrying a concealed weapon with or without a permit to carry
