Get a Denver Weapons Charges Defense Attorney

Weapons offenses are very serious and require an experienced defense attorney. They are the subject of fundamental constitutional rights, important notions of security and privacy, and involve an area of constantly changing laws. Just as the issues surrounding weapons offenses are complex and varied, so too are the charges themselves. Many weapons offenses carry mandatory prison time, or act to aggravate other crimes which may be charged. Weapons charges may be brought in either state or federal court. Often times weapons charges involve allegations of prior felony or domestic violence convictions. Some weapons offenses are based on the weapon itself, while others relate to the circumstances of its use or possession. Because of the extreme diversity in this area of criminal defense, it is particularly critical to have an attorney who has handled many previous weapons cases in the past, and who is current on the ever changing laws.
