Facing Weapons Charges?

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.
