Effective Defense of Gun Charges in Illinois
Successfully defending clients against gun charges requires a thorough investigation of the circumstances of the arrest. Our firm uses a team of skilled investigators to collect our own evidence and cast doubt on the prosecution’s evidence. Gun charges often involve constitutional issues that raise questions about the legality of the arrest and the search of home, car or person. Wherever possible, we look for ways to exclude evidence against our clients and pursue case dismissals.
Average citizens who are unfamiliar with gun laws are often arrested for improperly carrying firearms in their car. In Illinois, guns can only be transported in a car if they are unloaded and enclosed in a case/container, and the owner must have a FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) card in order to do so. Violations of these statutes can result in unlawful use of a weapon charges. We are experienced in representing clients in these cases. We fight to ensure our clients rights and freedoms are protected.
