Aggressively Fighting Weapon Charges
At Brennan Law Offices, we have been handling difficult criminal defense issues for over 25 years. If you have been accused of using a weapon while committing a crime, you face significantly harsher penalties than if a weapon had not been involved. Consider the following:
- If you are arrested for a drug offense and are in possession of firearm at the time of the arrest, you face a mandatory minimum sentence of five years.
- Most gun offenses are felonies; very few are considered misdemeanors.
- Even first-time offenders face severe penalties if convicted of a gun crime.
Our attorneys will carefully analyze all aspects of your case, looking for any signs of police misconduct or procedural errors. There are a number of defenses available for weapons offenses, including demonstrating that the gun did not belong to you, or does not even meet the legal definition of a firearm. The consequences of a gun charge or weapon charge conviction are severe — and we will do whatever it takes to protect your rights.
