Westborough Gun Lawyer

From the very beginning, people have viewed second amendment rights as fundamental. When someone threatens those gun rights or if you overstep your Constitutional rights to gun ownership, you may need the help of a Westborough gun lawyer.

An established criminal attorney can assist with all kinds of gun-related charges. Whether police arrested you or you believe you may soon be facing charges, a consultation with a lawyer can help you better understand your rights and legal options.

Understanding Firearm License Law

Local police departments can issue gun licenses. License to carry, or LTC, permits are the most common. They permit the purchase and carry of non-large capacity firearms. People may buy and use ammunition, handguns, shotguns, and rifles if they have an LTC permit. A Firearms Identification Card, or FID, allows a person to buy and possess non-large capacity guns, rifles, and ammunition.

FID applicants must be at least 18 years of age, while LTC applicants need to be 21 years or older. The licenses are good for six years and are renewable without additional training. Maintaining a gun license in Westborough is easy, so there is never a good excuse for not having the proper documentation.

Defending Against Gun Charges

When a person faces charges of a gun crime, an attorney will first look at the evidence used to make the arrest. Police are only human and make mistakes now and then. Officers sometimes perform illegal searches of cars, homes, and other property that lead them to find a firearm. In those situations, a lawyer can bar the evidence found in an illegal search as inadmissible in court.

A Westborough gun lawyer can also call into question the appropriateness of the charges an individual is facing. Westborough gun laws are complicated and sometimes overlap. It is easy for police officers to become confused by the different statutes and charge a person with a crime that does not match the allegations against them.

A Westborough gun lawyer could dispute the possession of the gun in question. While possession may seem straightforward, they can raise questions of who the gun might belong to. Though having a gun in a car may seem to establish obvious ownership, for example, an attorney can point out ownership of the vehicle, recent passengers, and other important details that may cast a shadow of doubt on a charge.

Seeking Assistance from a Skilled Lawyer

Westborough takes illegal possession of a firearm seriously. Even a first offense can result in years of imprisonment. Anyone facing these charges should understand the gravity of their situation and begin planning for their defense.

Regardless of the reasons for your arrest, speaking with an experienced Westborough gun attorney is an important step for anyone facing criminal allegations. With expensive fines, jail time, and more on the line an attorney can help you prepare a sophisticated defense.

A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself.

Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible.
