Los Angeles Defense Attorney for Weapon Charges

If charged with a Weapons Charge, understand your rights

There are many types of weapon charges an individual can be accused of in California. One example in Los Angeles is the carrying of a concealed firearm without a permit.  The California laws require many of these offenses to be charged as a felony, which can carry a long prison sentence and large fines.

When there is a violation of laws or ordinances that prohibit the manufacture, sale, purchase, transportation, possession, concealment, or use of firearms or other deadly weapons, then a weapons charge has been committed. 

It is critical you contact as soon as possible one of our experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys from the Law Offices of Marks & Brooklier.  We are skilled in handling all aspects of a weapons offense charge.  Our team will protect your rights when you are facing any one of the following charges:

  • Using a weapon while under the influence of alcohol/drugs
  • Juvenile weapon offenses
  • Discharging a firearm in a public place
  • Brandishing a weapon
  • Selling or delivering weapons
  • Illegal possession of a firearm
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Improper exhibition of a firearm or weapon
  • Manufacturing firearms or other weapons

There are different repercussions, depending on how you use a firearm.  If you are charged with a weapons offense in committing another crime, the crime which may have been a misdemeanor can become a felony instead.  There are serious penalties for using a weapon in the commission of a crime.  If you were involved in a crime of burglary or robbery and also use a gun, the penalties and sentencing will increase considerably.
