Weapons charges carry minimum mandatory sentences, including:

· Life in prison for wounding a person with a firearm
These sentences are mandatory. If they are not waived, they must be imposed by the court.

People facing weapons charges frequently are facing charges for other criminal offenses. Carrying a firearm is an aggravating factor that can boost other offenses from a misdemeanor to a felony.
Developing a Strategy for Success
We will sort out all of the charges against you and work to get them reduced or dismissed. Then we will develop a (strategy) for defending you against any remaining charges. Skill at sorting through the charges and developing a strong defense requires an experienced criminal attorney.
The fact that your fingerprints were found on a firearm does not automatically make you guilty as charged. We will question how the government obtained the evidence against you. Were you a victim of an illegal search and seizure? If so, the evidence against you cannot be used in court.
