Attorneys for Gun & Firearm Charges
It is against the law to carry a concealed firearm unless you have a concealed weapons permit. It can also be illegal to carry a rifle or gun in your car, even if you have a license to own a firearm.
Depending on the situation, a gun offense can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. Gun, rifle, and firearm charges can be incredibly complicated so it’s imperative to have an experienced Oakland gun lawyer who has your back to represent you in court. Along with the fact that gun possession can be a criminal charge by itself, the use of a gun, rifle, or firearm in addition to the possession crime can increase the punishment.
It is also illegal to be a “prohibited person” in possession of a firearm. For example, under both California law and section 922(g) of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, a felony conviction or misdemeanor domestic violence conviction can result in a firearm prohibition.
Whether you have been or arrested or are awaiting your trial it’s important to speak with an experienced criminal law attorney who understands the California laws that surround gun control and firearm offenses.
