Experienced Federal Firearms Violations Defense Lawyers
At Spodek Law Group, we understand the severity of federal firearms violations. When firearms cross state lines, any violation of gun laws can quickly turn into a federal case, and the consequences can be severe. Federal firearms laws are very strict, and they carry serious penalties that can result in mandatory minimum prison sentences. This is why it’s essential to seek the assistance of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney, like Attorney Todd Spodek, who has more than 40 years of experience in handling weapons charges.
A Deep Understanding of Federal Gun Laws

We have represented numerous clients charged with federal firearms violations and have obtained favorable results for them.

Evaluating Facts and Building Strong Arguments
We know that every case is unique, and we evaluate the facts surrounding your arrest to see whether your constitutional rights were upheld. If not, we can argue that evidence be thrown out and seek to have charges dropped altogether. At Spodek Law Group, we examine all possible arguments to help you get the best possible result for your particular federal weapons case.
Federal Firearms Violations Investigated by Federal Agencies
Federal firearms violations are often investigated by experienced federal law enforcement agencies, such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). These agencies have almost limitless resources to aggressively investigate and pursue criminal charges against anyone who is allegedly violating federal weapons laws. This is why you need a federal criminal lawyer who knows federal criminal law, federal criminal court process, and the federal sentencing guidelines.
Commonly Charged Federal Firearms Violations
At Spodek Law Group, we have handled a wide range of federal firearms violations, including:
Illegal possession of a firearm by a prohibited person
Possession of a firearm during a violent crime or drug transaction
Illegal sale of a firearm
Illegal trafficking of a firearm
Illegal altering, destroying, or removal of a serial number
Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
Possession of an unregistered firearm
Straw purchase(s) of a firearm
Federal Penalties for Firearms Violations
The criminal penalties for a federal firearms violation will depend on the specific offense, any aggravating factors, and the defendant’s prior criminal record. For example, a violation of 18 U.S.C. 922(g) – possession of a firearm by a prohibited person – carries a federal prison sentence of up to 10 years and a fine up to $250,000. A conviction for 18 U.S.C. 924(c) – use or possession of a firearm in furtherance of a federal crime of violence – carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison, and even life without parole if death resulted from using a firearm.
