We Defend Against All Types Of Gun Crime Charges
Charges such as brandishing a weapon or illegally carrying a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) can carry serious penalties, including prison time and heavy fines. It is important to understand that the possible penalties range significantly, and you will need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible to minimize the negative effects of a gun-related arrest.
Don’t assume that the police will understand or be on your side. Don’t assume that, just because you believe in the rule of law, the prosecutor will treat your case lightly. Before you say anything to investigators, talk to us. The attorneys at Damico & Stockstill have extensive experience in gun crime cases. We can defend your rights and freedom if you are facing any type of gun charge, including:
- Assault with a firearm (aggravated assault)
- Owning a gun after a felony conviction
- Drug-related gun crimes
- Domestic violence gun crimes
- Brandishing a firearm (also known as “negligent carrying of a concealed handgun”)
- Carrying a concealed weapon in a restricted location
- Federal gun trafficking charges
Having a concealed carry permit does not automatically prevent you from facing a gun charge. Permitted concealed carry is still restricted, and you could be accused of a firearms offense for entering certain restricted locations while in possession of a gun. If you have questions about these matters, do not hesitate to contact the firearms defense lawyers at Damico & Stockstill. See our client testimonials to learn more.
