Defending People Accused of Weapons Charges

Weapons charge cases present many of the legal issues and defenses that drug cases do. You have constitutional rights regarding your person. The police must follow proper procedures when investigating and making an arrest. Any search warrant must be properly drawn. The state must show that the gun was in your possession and, depending on the crime, that it was accessible to you.

Any one of these or other legal issues may enable me to suppress evidence and obtain a dismissal of the charge. Whenever it is possible based on the facts and the law, this will be my goal. The Law Offices of Harvey C. Welch will aggressively defend you in hearings and, if need be, at trial.

You will have confidence, knowing that an experienced criminal defense lawyer is on your side, fighting for your rights and freedom.
