Weapons Charges

Howell Gun Crime Lawyers

Many Americans consider the right to bear arms one of their most important constitutional freedoms. While numerous federal and state laws support the legal ownership and use of firearms, harsh penalties can be imposed for the illegal possession or use of a gun, or another type of weapon. When a firearm is used in a crime in Michigan, a jail or prison sentence can easily result.

Get Experienced Representation As Soon As Possible

If you or a loved one has been arrested on weapons charges, it is important to seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Harris & Literski, we advise and represent clients who have been charged with a crime related to:

  • Concealed firearms: If you have been charged with possession of a concealed weapon (sometimes known as CCW) without a permit or in a banned location, we can assist you in protecting your rights.
  • Felony firearm charges: We can represent you if you were accused of committing a felony while in possession of a firearm. A common example is drug possession or distribution that also involves the presence of a weapon on a defendant's person, in a vehicle or in a house that has been subject to search.
  • Purchase of a gun if you have a previous felony conviction
  • Unlawful discharge of a firearm
  • Assault with a deadly weapon, homicide or another violent offense involving a weapon

In every weapons case, our defense attorneys will develop a strategy designed to help our clients avoid imprisonment or otherwise minimize the penalties. Our attorneys are experienced with state and federal charges of all kinds.
