Diligent Defense Counsel For An Array Of Case Types

Until you face them, the difference between federal and state charges may not have mattered to you. But the differences are quite significant. In fact, federal gun crimes often mean stricter consequences. Gun crimes with a federal classification include:

  • Illegal acquirement of guns
  • Possessing a gun which is connected to certain crimes such as a drug transaction
  • Unlawful possession – including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Trafficking or illegal transportation of firearms

We are well-versed in building effective defenses for federal gun crimes such as these. Our team will extensively review your case for evidence that will work in your favor, and we will diligently pursue your wellbeing.
