Gun And Weapon Charges Attorneys Based In Fort Lauderdale

The Second Amendment protects an American’s right to own firearms. But there are exceptions. One such exception is for those convicted of certain crimes. You can be charged with unlawful possession of a firearm as a misdemeanor or felony under state or federal law in Florida. If you are, you will need the support of a skilled, hardworking defense attorney to fight to keep you out of prison.

That is our commitment to our clients at The Kreiss Law Firm. We work tirelessly to shield your civil rights from violations by police, prosecutors and judges. Our lawyers draw on their more than 44 years of combined experience in criminal defense to develop a creative and practical strategy for each case we handle. Our team can help you confront a gun or weapons charge.

Who Cannot Possess A Gun In Florida?

In Florida, it is against the law to possess a firearm if any of the following apply:

  • Minor under age 21
  • Felony conviction
  • Conviction for certain drug-related crimes within the past three years
  • Terms of a domestic abuse order
  • Chronic abuse of alcohol or drugs
  • Commitment to a mental institution or drug treatment center within the past three years

Getting arrested does not automatically mean you are guilty. We will review the evidence closely for signs of errors or illegal police procedures. Illegally obtained evidence should not be used against you in court. Our lawyers will fight to make sure you get treated fairly at every stage, from interrogation to your first court appearance, to discovery and plea negotiations. They will take your case to trial rather than settle for a poor plea bargain.
