Firearm Charges & Gun Possession Charges

Any time a firearm is involved in the alleged commission of a crime, the penalties can become much more severe. You could lose your right to own a gun for the rest of your life, even if you avoid other serious penalties such as prison. That means it would be illegal to own a gun for hunting or sport shooting.

At the Coughlin Law Group PC in Boston, we respect the rights of hardworking, responsible firearm owners accused of serious crimes. Experienced trial lawyers, our criminal defense attorneys can provide the vigorous defense you require.

Have you been arrested for illegal possession of a firearm, use of a firearm in the commission of a crime, or another weapons violation? Call 617-758-8888 to speak with a skilled gun possession attorney to assist with firearm charges.

Uncovering The Facts Of The Allegations You Face

An important factor in any criminal charge involving weapons is the exact role the gun in question played. Leading our law firm are two experienced criminal defense attorneys who have been through countless trials and know the evidence that prosecutors will try to use against you. We have the resources and network of experts to call on to help determine if:

  • Your gun was ever fired
  • If someone else was in possession of your gun
  • You were acting in self-defense

With a former prosecutor on staff, we know how the other side will approach your case and how high its burden of proof is. No matter what the weapons charges are – whether you are charged with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal use of a firearm in the commission of a crime or you face the possibility of enhanced sentencing due to a prior weapons violation, we can provide a strong defense on your behalf.
