San Fernando Criminal Defense Attorney for Weapons Charges

Types of Weapons Charges in California

California has strict weapons laws, and enforces them aggressively, especially in the San Fernando Valley. With violent crime being a top priority facing law enforcement, any weapons charge is relentlessly pursued for a conviction. Anyone committing a crime with a weapon will almost always be facing one or more felony charges, even if the crime could have been charged as a misdemeanor. It is important that you contact a lawyer that knows the difference between a legal firearm and an illegal firearm, the difference between a legal knife and an illegal knife, and the difference between a good deal for his client and a very bad deal for his client.

Weapons charges can include the following types of crimes when any law or ordinance has been violated:

  • Illegal gun manufacturing
  • Illegal sale
  • Illegal purchase
  • Illegal possession
  • Concealment
  • Possession of a firearm in a vehicle
  • Possession of a stolen firearm
  • Illegal use of a firearm
  • Illegal transportation of a firearm
  • Possession of dangerous weapons such as batons, dirks, daggers, switchblades, and much more.

Weapons charges are very severe and can include single or multiple offenses. A conviction can result in jail or prison time, fines, community labor and destruction of your weapons and loss of your rights to own or possess them. If you or someone you know is facing a weapons charge, contact the criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens for dedicated and effective legal representation. Often these charges can be negotiated down or even dismissed, if the prosecution fails to provide adequate proof. Let our skilled lawyers work for you to protect your right to keep and bear arms. Contact a lawyer who is firearms expert with decades of experience with firearms and other weapons.

A conviction for many charges, both felony and misdemeanor can cause you to be unable to own or possess a firearm for the rest of your life. Many charges carry with them a ten year firearm prohibition. Please talk to a lawyer who knows the difference between a 38 and a 308 and the difference between keeping your right to own firearms and losing your rights.
