Gun Crimes Your Fight Is Our Fight

Miami Gun Crimes Attorney

Under Florida law, gun crimes are harshly punished. While the right for Floridians to bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and Section 8 of Article I in the Constitution of the State of Florida, this right is not without limits. Being arrested for any kind of violent crime carries serious penalties in Florida, and these penalties may be enhanced if the alleged offender carried a firearm while committing a crime.

Some of the firearm and weapon offenses we have worked with include:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Unlawful possession of a deadly weapon
  • Using a destructive device, such as a sawed-off shotgun
  • Illegal firearm sale
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Shooting a gun in public
  • Using a firearm while intoxicated
  • Prohibited use of a gun against a law enforcement officer
