Aggressively Defending Weapons Charges

Most weapons charges carrying the prospect of some jail time and expensive fines. Additionally, depending on your criminal history, conviction on a weapons charge may result in your being prohibited from owning a gun in the future.

Weapons Charges — State and Federal

The Shapiro Law Firm counsels and represents clients charged with the following kinds of weapons violations:

  • Sawed off shotgun

  • Possessing a firearm as a convicted felon

At the Shapiro Law Firm, we evaluate our client's case in order to determine the most effective means for helping them avoid the worst possible outcome. We also investigate the charges against our client, especially in cases where police make a car stop and then claim probable cause justified a search of your car. When improper police conduct is involved, our office has been successful in having the evidence against our client thrown out in court and the charges against them dismissed.

Even if you were carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, don't assume there is nothing you can do. Protect yourself and be informed — call the criminal defense attorneys of the Shapiro Law Firm at 800-554-5247.
