West Palm Beach Guns & Weapons Attorneys

Guns & Weapons Charges Attorneys in West Palm Beach

Gun and weapon charges are always serious offenses that can result in significant criminal penalties, as well as life-long restrictions of gun use and ownership. In some cases, these may be standalone charges. In many other cases, the mere presence of a gun or other weapon during the commission of another alleged crime, can significantly increase the penalties faced by a defendant.

Early consultation with an experienced West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer is the best thing you can do to protect your rights. There are many ways an experienced defense attorney can have such charges reduced or dismissed. Exercising your right to remain silent is always your best option. You will not talk your way out of trouble.

Anything you say will be noted by law enforcement and used against you. Even if you don’t think you are making incriminating statements, any statements you do make may conflict with a possible defense your attorney may otherwise have been able to use on your behalf.

Common Florida Gun & Weapon charges

Defense of Weapons Charges

In many cases, gun charges are filed as an enhancement, or aggravating factor, as part of a criminal case alleging another crime. An experienced West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer will work to beat such enhancements, or to win a reduction or dismissal of associated gun charges, which can result in a substantial reduction in potential penalties.

Other common defenses include:

  • Lawful possession: Armed law enforcement are quick to charge armed citizens. In many cases, the law favors defendants who seek experienced legal defense to both protect their freedom and their rights under the 2nd Amendment.
  • Antique firearms: Many older firearms are protected by exemptions for antique firearms and replicas.
  • Self-defense: Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law often protects those who act in protection of themselves or family members.
  • Challenging possession: Particularly in constructive possession cases, when it can be shown that you did not know about a firearm, or were not in possession of it, you should not be convicted of a crime.
  • Illegal search and seizure: Successfully challenging the arrest, or a search, can result in dismissal of the charges against you.
