Federal Firearm Offenses

Put a Qualified Attorney on Your Side

Federal and state laws governing the ownership, possession, and use of certain firearms are very strict and can be difficult to understand. Any unlawful possession or use of a firearm by an individual that is not legally able to possess that weapon could lead to a federal charge.

Our team has over 14 years of experience in handling complex criminal cases, and we stand ready to assist you, too.

If you have been charged with a federal crime, call our office at (305) 501-4141 to retain the representation of a qualified attorney.

What Is a Federal Firearm Offense?

There are a few factors that may determine how your case is prosecuted, as well as what additional charges may be brought against you.

You may be facing federal prosecution if you have been charged with:

  • Being in possession of a firearm if you are a convicted felon
  • Possession of a weapon with the intent to use the weapon to inflict violence
  • Possession of a weapon with the intent to use it to sell or traffic drugs

Under federal law, the transportation, purchase, and distribution of firearms are strictly monitored and any illegal activity or alleged illegal activity could leave you facing serious penalties. Convicted firearms offenders may face incarceration, fines, and the loss of the right to bear arms in the future.
