Felony Possession Firearm
Attorney Paul J. Dickman provides gun charge defense to clients charged with a range of crimes, including the following:
- Illegal possession of a concealed weapon
- Assault with a firearm
- Possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes
- Unlicensed possession of a firearm
Possession While Committing Other Crimes
- It is legal to carry a shotgun or rifle
- It is legal to carry a handgun with a permit
However, when an individual is in possession of a firearm and he or she has committed a crime, the penalties for the applicable crime can be enhanced. For example, if an individual is in possession of a firearm and marijuana, he or she could be facing enhanced penalties, even though the only crime being committed is being in possession of illegal drugs.
Any crime — from speeding to theft — is enhanceable if the defendant is in possession of a firearm. As criminal defense lawyers, our aim is to save our clients from a firearm enhancement and the penalties that ensue. Each issue can and should be dealt with separately.
