Illegal Possession Of A Firearm

Federal firearms laws exist to prevent terrorism, control violent crime and protect the public. These laws provide severe criminal penalties for violators, including mandatory sentencing in some cases.

Law enforcement rarely sees ignorance as an excuse for illegal possession of a gun. If you have been charged with a federal crime for illegally possessing, carrying or transporting a firearm, regardless of whether you intentionally broke the law, you need to contact an attorney right away.

Help With State Charges

Illinois gun laws are extremely complex and ever-evolving. There are strict rules surrounding ownership of a firearm and carrying a firearm in public. There are mandatory registrations, trainings and permits to be aware of. There are also certain public places where it is prohibited to carry a firearm.

Due to increased gang-related gun activity, lawmakers in Illinois have created extremely harsh penalties for illegal gun possession. Even law-abiding citizens with no gang affiliation will be subject to these punishments if convicted. Our firm can aggressively and strategically defend you against state firearms charges.
