Ready To Challenge Gun And Weapons Charges
If you have been charged with a weapons violation, you may face an uphill challenge to protect your gun privileges and your rights. Prosecutors and police officers are backed by public sentiment and will zealously pursue maximum penalties for firearm offenses and other related criminal matters. Now is not the time to hope for leniency in sentencing.
This is the time to aggressively defend yourself. At Mark B. Arthur, PC, I will use the law and my criminal defense experience to get the outcome you deserve. For over 16 years, I have tirelessly championed my clients’ cases, exploring all legal avenues to resolve complicated issues.
Providing Aggressive Defense For A Wide Range Of Violations
Weapons crimes cover more than concealed weapons offenses. I regularly advise residents in Lynchburg and the surrounding areas on their options regarding this charge and others, including:
- Unlawful possession or sale of a weapon
- Discharge of a weapon in public
- Assault with a firearm or other dangerous weapon, including knives, switchblades or daggers
- Use of a deadly weapon to commit a crime
- Violation of firearm restriction due to a restraining order, a condition of probation or a domestic violence record
If you have a criminal record, your history can complicate your case. As a former prosecutor, I am familiar with the approaches prosecutors take when attacking the defendant’s side in court. I am equipped to combat their arguments, using case law and evidence to create an account that supports your version of the events.
At my firm, practicing criminal law is all that I do. I remain current on Virginia’s weapons laws, which helps me create a cutting-edge legal strategy for enhanced charges related to drug sales, possession or other criminal offenses. Having an extra charge added to your current charge can increase fines you owe or add years to your sentence. It is critical that you retain a lawyer who has the skills to handle these types of issues.
