Strong Defense When Gun Charges Have Jeopardized Your Rights

Unlawful possession of a weapon is a serious charge in Illinois that could carry up to three years in prison or more. When a weapon is used to commit a crime, it could enhance the sentence significantly or take your case from a state to federal crime. If you have been charged with a gun crime, you need an experienced lawyer protecting your rights and interests.

Aggressive Defense In Weapons Violation Cases

In Illinois, it is illegal to carry a gun on your person or in your car unless you are a law enforcement officer or are carrying a Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card. Even with a FOID card, if you are carrying a weapon in your car, it must be encased and not loaded. Failure to comply with these laws could result in felony charges.

I represent clients in a wide range of misdemeanor and felony gun charges, including:

  • Unlawful possession of a firearm
  • Unlawful use of a firearm
  • Armed robbery
  • Unlawful sale or purchase of a firearm

When weapon charges accompany other serious charges such as drug crimes or violent actions, the stakes are even higher. You need an attorney on your side who will fight for you.

I will carefully review your police records to determine whether the search and seizure was legal. If your rights were violated or law enforcement officers made errors, I will file motions to suppress evidence. I know how to expose weaknesses in the prosecution's case against you and will fight to have your charges dismissed or reduced. You can count on me for aggressive representation, from the negotiation table to the courtroom.
