Aggressive Defense of Gun, Firearm and Weapons Charges in Michigan

With offices in Mount Clemens, we represent individuals facing weapons charges in Metro Detroit and the surrounding areas in Michigan. We can defend you against a variety of weapons charges, including:

Illegal sale of a firearm or ammunition

Carrying a concealed weapon (CCW) without a concealed pistol permit

Failure to register a firearm

Possession of a pistol or gun in a weapon-free school zone or other pistol-free area

Reckless, careless or negligent use of a firearm resulting in injury or death

Armed robbery

Illegal or reckless discharge of a firearm

Carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Assault with a dangerous weapon

The possession of a concealed weapon can compound the consequences of any criminal situation. For instance, if you are charged with another type of felony, such as robbery, and you are in possession of a weapon, the charges may be increased to armed robbery, leaving you facing increased prison time. In Michigan, a conviction on a felony firearm charge (a separate crime) carries a two-year minimum mandatory sentence.

Our firearms defense attorney can evaluate your particular situation and recommend the best course of action to take regarding your criminal defense strategy. We will:

  • Investigate all facts and aspects of your case to determine all possible defenses, such as:
    • The gun or weapon was inoperable
    • The gun was not loaded
    • The rifle or gun was used for hunting
    • You didn't know the gun was in your possession
  • Examine and dispute the evidence and the manner in which it was obtained
  • Examine police procedures and prosecution tactics to identify and exploit case weaknesses
  • Effectively prepare and cross-examine witnesses
