The most difficult aspect of representing someone charged with a gun crime is that generally speaking federal laws provide stiff penalties for individuals found guilty of federal firearms violations.
I started representing felons in possession of a firearm which is the most common gun crime charged. I ended up going to trial in a lot of felon in possession cases because my client would be charged in the underlying drug crime. I was surprised at the number of cases where my client was alleged to possess a firearm, but the evidence lacked any fingerprints found on the firearm.
I have successfully represented clients charged with illegally possessing/selling firearms, being a felon in possession of a firearm, illegal possession of automatic weapons, and possession of a weapon in connection with a drug crime and possession of prohibited firearms.
While at first blush there doesn’t appear to be very much leeway in what can be done to help my client charged with a gun crime, I have seen that by fighting hard for my client generally produces good results.
