Firearms Offenses and Other Weapons Charges
Trial Attorney Represents Individuals Facing Firearms Charges
Allegations of illegal weapon possession can carry stiff penalties. If you’re facing gun or other weapons charges in Ohio, we ensure that our clients’ rights are secured at every stage. You need an attorney who understands the relevant statutes and the constitutional issues.
The United States Supreme Court has held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution confers a fundamental right to individual gun ownership for purposes of defending oneself and one’s family within the sanctity of the home. Self-defense is considered a natural right which has been honored and respected long before the existence of our constitutional republic. If someone unlawfully invades or attempts to breach the home, the People retain the right to use whatever force is necessary to eliminate the threat. Without the right to defend ourselves and our families the remainder of our constitutional rights are worthless.
If you are charged with a weapons violation, it is likely that police and prosecutors will not only attempt to prosecute you with that crime, but they may also seek forfeiture of your weapon, especially if that weapon is a firearm.
