Local, state and federal law enforcement personnel are zealous in their efforts to control the proliferation of weapons and prevent violent crimes. If you have been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm — or a violent crime involving use of a firearm or another type of weapon in Texas — you clearly need prompt counsel and focused representation. Even if you had no criminal intent or did not realize you were violating the law, the consequences of a weapons charge can be severe and life-altering.
