Weapons Charges

What constitutes a firearms offense?

An attorney can help if you or someone you know has been arrested for a weapons offense. Weapon-related charges are very serious and a conviction may result in imprisonment in a county or state correctional facility, as well as heavy fines. As experienced defense lawyers, we understand just how serious weapons charges are.

We will give you and your case the personalized attention and aggressive representation you need in order to have the greatest opportunity of reaching a positive outcome. We offer a free consultation with an attorney at our firm in order to review your charges and discuss your criminal defense representation. Our attorneys represent clients throughout all of Miami-Dade County and are thoroughly dedicated to representing their rights and interests.

Understanding the Charges and Penalties

There are numerous types of weapons charges as well as weapon-related offenses.

Following are some of the types of cases our attorneys can handle:

  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm
  • Unlawful Possession of a Deadly Weapon
  • Illegal Firearm Sale
  • Unlawful Distribution of a Deadly Weapon
  • Unlawful Discharge of a Weapon
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon
  • Battery with a Deadly Weapon
  • Brandishing a Firearm

In Florida, you may face criminal charges for offenses dealing with illegal possession or sale of a deadly weapon, and you can also face enhanced penalties and charges for the possession or use of a deadly weapon in the commission of another crime. Specific penalties will vary depending upon any injury the victim sustains, the extent of injury, the defendant's criminal record, the offense itself, and the jurisdiction. Consulting an attorney as soon as possible will only benefit the outcome of your case.
