Chicago Firearm Violation Defense Lawyer

About Federal Firearms Violations

There are many thousands of laws in the US and internationally regulating the use of firearms. While the right to bear arms is protected by the Constitution, one can violate federal or state firearms statutes and actually be unaware of it. When one has committed a federal firearms offence, the case is serious, as a significant amount of prison time can be the outcome. Conspiracy can be an added charge. If you have a previous felony on your record, even of a nonviolent economic crime, conviction on possession of a firearm can be a life-changing event. Federal firearms crimes are usually investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and are prosecuted by the US Attorney's Office. An aggressive and timely defense is critical from a Chicago violent crime defense lawyer. The Chicago defense team from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege is made up of a powerful group of experienced litigators who will fight for your rights and work to preserve your constitutional protections.
