Aggressive at Every State of Your Defense
When it comes to defending against a gun charge, our primary goal will be to remove the gun specification escalation – in other words, to remove the weapon charge from your case. Then we can focus on defending you on the underlying charge. To do that, we will carefully review all aspects of the events leading to your arrest. When it can help your case, we can hire a private investigator or forensic evidence specialist in an attempt to disprove or cast doubt on the prosecutor’s assertions.
