Experience and Credibility in the Courtroom

-Possession of illegal handguns
-Assault with a deadly weapon
-Unlawful conceal and carry of a weapon

-Illegal sale or distribution of a firearm
-Unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon (felon in possession)

Felony Convictions and Your Right to Bear Arms
Individuals with certain felony convictions on their records are not permitted to own or possess a firearm or other weapon. This can include hunting rifles, sword collections, and any other weapons — even if used for hobby or recreational purposes. Therefore, if you have a prior felony drug conviction, assault conviction, violent crime conviction, or other felony conviction on your record, you could face serious weapons charges if caught with a weapon for which you are not permitted to own or possess.
