The lawyers of Garland, Samuel & Loeb have provided criminal defense representation for people throughout Georgia and the rest of the United States for over two decades. We are prepared to take any federal case to trial, including weapons offenses.
Handling Many Types of Weapons Charges
Most Georgia weapons offenses are charged because other criminal conduct is alleged to have been committed using a weapon such as a gun, knife or blunt object that may be considered a weapon. We handle state and federal weapons charges involving:
- Intent to commit a crime
- Concealed weapons
- Stolen weapons
- Unlicensed weapons
- Failure to register a firearm
- Illegal sawed-off shotguns, automatic weapons, silencers and more
- Unlawful weapons sales or trafficking
- Buying weapons for someone else (straw purchase)
- Possession or use on federal property
- Possession by a convicted felon
Convictions on weapons charges mean harsh penalties that may include large fines, probation, and jail time or prison time. Using a weapon to commit a crime or having a previous felony conviction automatically increases a charge to a felony, with even greater penalties.
