Lawyer For Gun Charges

 

The right to bear arms is guaranteed in the United States Constitution. This does not mean, however, that there are no restrictions on that right. If you are being charged with a crime in Virginia for gun or weapons possession, we know the very idea of being accused in court can be quite intimidating. But we know the players in the Virginia courts and we know what you are up against, so we know what it will take to protect your rights, under the law. That’s what we do, in Virginia criminal courts every day.
Most people arrested for gun charges are usually charged for illegally carrying a concealed weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, or possession of a firearm while also possessing drugs. Virginia law allows for people to carry concealed firearms if they apply for and are granted a permit. If someone does not have a permit to carry a firearm and they conceal it on their person, they can be charged with a crime. Felons are also prohibited from possessing firearms. It is a very serious offence for felons to be in possession of firearms.

Weapons Attorney

 

They say,“You don’t take a gun to a knife fight,” but when you are combating gun or weapons charges, you need a lawyer who is armed with the law.  At the Law Office of Robert L. Lichtenstein, I know our criminal laws inside and out and I possess the legal tools needed to handle your legal entanglements. While the Second Amendment gives the right to bear arms, that right is not absolute. If you are facing gun charges, especially in conjunction with other charges, you need A high caliber Gun Lawyer by your side — and sometimes in front of you — in the courtroom.

 


Firearms Defense Lawyer

 

Whether you have been wrongfully accused or made a mistake you now regret, I can help. I have handled many weapons cases and have probably successfully defended one similar to yours. I know, however, that all cases are different and are interested in hearing about your case.
So contact or call us today to get the advice you need, and to find out exactly what we can do to help.

Can You Carry A Gun In Virginia?

(Va. Ann. Code § 18.2-308.)

I had enough to worry about before my military deployment and thank you so much for getting my ticket taken care of without my appearance. I was worried that I was going to have to drive up from NC, but you took care of it without my appearance and helped alleviate some of my worries. If I need anyone in the future, I know where to go.

Vindication

I was ticketed for an accident that I didn't even cause. My insurance company paid for the other vehicle, but I was given a ticket to appear in court. I had never been in trouble before, and I was extremely nervous.  Robert appeared in court with me and I was finally able to get vindication, as the accident was not my fault. Thank you so much.

Couldn’t Be Happier

Living in New Hampshire I was nervous about finding an attorney in Virginia. I attempted to contact several attorneys before talking to Chris in this office. He took time with me and reminded me of my grandson. After speaking with this office, my nervousness and fears were diminished and Robert got my traffic matter handled without my appearance. I am very appreciative. When you call ask for Chris, he was great with me. Blessings to your firm from New Hampshire.
