For those who are charged with unlawfully possessing a firearm, it is imperative to understand that there are all sorts of factors that impact their case and that everyone is in a unique position. Sometimes, these charges result in time behind bars. For example, those who are charged with other crimes (such as those involving unlawful substances or a violent offense) often face additional charges related to firearm possession.
Many people spend years behind bars as a result of firearms charges. Our law office understands all too well how disruptive this is in multiple aspects of one’s life.

If you have dreams or goals, these are sometimes unobtainable as a result of spending years in prison.
