Understanding Your Defense Options
Weapons charges can be confusing and unclear. If you have been charged with a weapons crime, we will investigate in detail the circumstances that lead up to the arrest and the crime you are charged with, then go over your options in light of those facts.
In Virginia, you can be charged with a crime for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit or in a place where even people with permits may not carry weapons. A weapon need not be a firearm. A knife, baseball bat or other object that could be used to harm someone may be considered a weapon. You can also be charged with "brandishing" a firearm.
If you have been charged with a gun crime or other weapons offense, contact us to discuss how we can defend you and avoid or reduce the consequences of the charge.
Handling Weapons Charges at Special Facilities
Given the number of airports, other transportation facilities and government buildings in Loudoun County, Fairfax County, and elsewhere in Northern Virginia, it is fairly common for people carrying any sort of item that could be used as a weapon in these facilities to find themselves facing criminal weapons charges.
Our lawyers are fully prepared to defend clients against state or federal weapons charges involving facilities such as these that are covered by special weapons regulations.
