Weapons Charge Defense Lawyers

The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed the right to possess firearms, but there are still many gun crimes that can land a person in jail. For example, if you are subject to a restraining order, you cannot own a firearm. People who are found to be mentally ill or have been previously convicted of certain crimes cannot possess firearms. And use of a weapon in the commission of a crime can result in enhanced penalties upon conviction. These are serious charges that require proactive and vigorous representation.

If you have been charged with a weapons crime, your freedom could be on the line. Don't take chances with your future — get legal help today by calling Short Law Group at 503-747-7198.
