Gun Crimes Lawyers in Flint

Defending against Firearms Charges & Protecting Your Rights

The Second Amendment guarantees U.S. citizens the right to bear arms. That right, however, isn’t absolute. There are various federal and state laws in place that determine who can lawfully possess a firearm and where, which types of firearms may be concealed in public, and when one should not face criminal liability for using a gun in self-defense.

We at CFlegal, PC. appreciate just how serious gun crime accusations are. Some can be charged as misdemeanors, but most are charged as felonies. That means those who are convicted can face multiple years, decades, or even life in prison. The stakes are high when you’re charged with a gun crime, so don’t settle for an overburdened public defender or a less experienced private attorney.

CFlegal, PC. has more than 35 years of experience advocating for clients accused of firearms offenses, such as the following common charges:

  • Reckless Discharge of a Firearm
  • Possessing a Firearm on Prohibited Premises
  • Brandishing a Firearm in Public
  • Intentionally Discharging a Firearm Aimed without Malice
  • Felony Firearm Possession
  • Assault with a Dangerous Weapon
  • Unlawfully Carrying a Concealed Weapon
  • Possession or Transport of a Stolen Firearm

Your life can be radically altered if you are successfully convicted of any of these firearms charges. If you need legal assistance, reach out to our gun crimes lawyers in Flint for help.

Contact CFlegal, PC. online today or call our offices at (810) 292-3115 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Were You Charged Despite Having a Concealed Pistol License?

Having a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) in Michigan is a major responsibility. You know this well because you underwent a government-sanctioned legal process to obtain your CPL. Despite this, however, even the most responsible CPL carrier in the state can make a mistake.

For example, you can be arrested for carrying a firearm with an expired or suspended CPL, or for carrying a weapon not permitted by your license. You could also be arrested for unintentionally carrying a firearm into a weapon-free zone.

Even if your gun misfires in a holster, you may be arrested for negligent discharge. Drawing your weapon at an inappropriate time can also land you severe criminal charges, even if you thought you were lawfully protecting yourself or others.

Needless to say, responsible gun owners aren’t impervious to the way our gun laws can be interpreted. It takes experienced legal counsel, like our gun crimes lawyers in Flint, to defend against these criminal charges.

Did You Use a Firearm in Self-Defense?

There are two important self-defense laws in Michigan: the stand your ground law and the castle doctrine.

Stand your ground specifically protects the use of lethal force only if someone is in danger of serious bodily injury, sexual assault, or death. Under these circumstances, killing someone who is attacking you or someone else can be justified under the law.

The castle doctrine is a legal defense that states someone may use lethal force against an intruder within their home, car, or business. Specifically, they must fear they are in imminent danger of serious bodily harm, sexual assault, or death because the other person is trying to break into the property or is already inside and about to commit a felony.

Keep in mind that both of these laws are only intended to protect people, not their property. For example, you can’t use deadly force to stop someone from breaking into your car if you are inside your home, but you may be justified in doing so if that person decides to break into your home as well.

Get Serious Legal Experience on Your Side

When you are charged with any firearms-related offense, you need a gun crimes lawyer in Flint who has what it takes to protect your rights. Those who are involved in the justice system as defendants need strong advocates like our attorneys to help them defend against their charges and fight for the best possible outcomes.

If you are in need of legal assistance at this time, don’t hesitate any longer to contact CFlegal, PC. for help. Reach out to us online to request a free consultation with flexible appointment times.
