Los Angeles Gun Charges Lawyers

Americans have a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Nonetheless, those rights are bound by legal restrictions. Some of these are well known by people while other laws are not as familiar. This unfamiliarity with the law can lead people to run afoul of the law, and this may mean being brought up on weapons or gun charges in California.

The state takes gun and weapons charges very seriously. Prosecutors have been known to seek the strictest penalties allowed by the law in every case. Unfortunately, this does not always take into account the facts of each particular case. A simple accident or mistake does not always merit a long stint in prison. That’s why the Los Angeles weapons charges attorneys at this firm work so hard to protect the rights of their clients. They put in tireless effort to get the charges against their clients reduced or dropped. In fact, through their zealous defense they have been able to get clients who are charged with a weapons violation that might have been penalized with a prison sentenced reduced to attendance at a gun education class or a short probationary period. Don’t leave your future to chance or to the doubtful skill of an inexperienced attorney. Contact our seasoned California gun charges attorneys today.

California Felony Weapons Charges Are Serious

Most gun and weapons charges in California are charged as felonies. Some possession charges may be kept at the misdemeanor level. Occasionally, a Los Angeles weapons crimes defense attorney will be able to get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor, resulting in a lighter sentence. However, being convicted of a felony weapons violation comes with serious consequences that may include jail or prison time, significant fines and a criminal record that makes life difficult for many years.

The District Attorney will decide how to proceed based on a number of factors. These include the criminal history of the defendant. Someone who has no criminal history may be charged with a lesser crime while someone with an extensive background with the criminal court system may be looking at a harsher penalty. Prosecutors will also review what type of weapon was used. Guns may be considered the most dangerous, but knives, box cutters, brass knuckles, billy clubs and other items may also be categorized as dangerous and potentially deadly weapons. Prosecutors not only look at the exact weapon that was used, but also at the way in which it was used. A person caught with a concealed handgun and no permit may be subject to lesser penalties than a person who was brandishing the weapon in a crowded place. Suspects can also expect law enforcement to review their history regarding drug crimes. They may even be tested for being under the influence at the time they were caught with the weapon. A person who was drunk, high or otherwise impaired at the time of the alleged incident may be facing more serious charges.

California Gun and Weapons Laws

California has some of the most comprehensive weapons laws in the nation. This makes it difficult for the average person to be familiar with all of the laws. For instance, people may not be aware that possessing a silencer or a switchblade knife are both considered weapons violations. Short-barreled rifles and shotguns are similarly prohibited. People may also be charged with the unlawful discharge of a firearm in California or with dealing in firearms without a license.

The potential for getting into trouble with the police over weapons violations is grim even for those who are unaware that a crime is being committed. Consider the case of a young man riding around in a car with a friend. The driver possesses a stolen handgun that’s hidden under the seat of the car. If the police have probable cause to search the car and they uncover the gun, then both young men may be charged with a crime. It’s certainly an unfair situation. However, a qualified weapons charges defense attorney would have little problem having these charges reduced or dropped.

Call a Competent Los Angeles Gun and Weapons Charges Attorney

If you are facing gun or weapons charges in California, do not hesitate to contact a criminal defense attorney.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
