Effective Weapons Violations Defense Lawyers
The Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms. However, that right is not absolute. Among the federal government, state governments, and local governments there are over 20,000 existing gun laws in the United States, making it difficult for people to know where or when they might be in violation of the law. At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, in Dallas, Texas, we are committed to representing people charged with state and federal weapons violations.
Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys
While the number of laws regarding weapons makes it difficult to understand when and where a gun can be carried, weapons violations are serious. A conviction on a weapons charge can put your freedom at risk, prevent you from owning a gun, and can have a significant impact on future employment opportunities.
Many local, state, and federal jurisdictions have laws concerning the possession, carrying, use, sale, manufacture, and the importation of weapons. In addition, even the citizen licensed to carry firearms may be in violation of the law for having a gun at an educational institution, on the premises of a polling place on the day of an election, in a courthouse or correctional facility, on the premises of a racetrack, or in a secured area of an airport – sometimes referred to as weapons places prohibited.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing people charged with state and federal weapons charges. All our attorneys are former state and federal prosecutors. We understand how prosecutors prepare and present cases. We also understand the techniques used by local police agencies, the ATF, and the FBI to investigate weapons cases involving illegal sales, manufacture, and importing and exporting of prohibited weapons. No weapons case is too difficult for us, and no case is treated as routine. Our goal is simple: to win.
