Nevada prosecutors aggressively pursue convictions for weapon crime cases. If convicted, you could very well face imprisonment. Additionally, you may lose your right to own a firearm in the future. If you are facing charges involving guns or other illegal weapons, it is important to protect your legal rights.
We have extensive experience defending clients against a wide range of weapon charges, including those involving:
- Possession of an unlawful weapon
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Stealing firearms from military members
- Convicted felon in possession of a firearm
- Illegal sale of firearms
- Use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime
It is important to remember that when a weapon is used in the commission of another crime, such as robbery or a drug transaction, the penalties can be enhanced, or increased dramatically. For a state crime, judges can add from one to 20 years to a sentence. For a federal crime, they can add from seven to 10 years.
Our lawyers understand the importance of taking aggressive legal action to protect our clients from the harsh consequences of a weapons crime conviction. We have successfully defended hundreds of clients against criminal charges and are prepared to stand up for your rights.
