Being charged with illegal possession of a firearm is very serious. My goal in representing you is to have the charges reduced or dismissed, if possible. There are legitimate defenses in these cases, including civil rights defenses, procedural defenses, and fact-based defenses.
In order to gain a conviction, the prosecutor must prove both your intent to possess and your control of the firearm. In our experience as a criminal defense lawyers, we have often found that someone other than the convicted felon was keeping a firearm in the house, often a girlfriend or relative. In some cases, such as when neither the residence nor the utilities are in your name, we may be able to demonstrate that you had no intent to possess a gun.
In a surprisingly large number of cases, our clients have been accused of illegal gun possession because they were riding in a car with someone who was carrying a gun. In such cases, I may look into whether the traffic stop was legal, or whether the police violated your rights during the search.
Whatever your situation, when I accept your case, I take the time necessary to gather the facts and build a strong defense.
