Lawyers Defending Your Constitutional Right To Carry A Firearm

Possessing a firearm is a constitutional right. Having that right taken away from you requires extreme circumstances and strong evidence. We have seen good people accused of firearms crimes by people who have lied about their firearm use, such as being accused of pointing a gun when you haven’t, or being accused of assault when you were acting in genuine self defense or defense of others. And other people have been accused of possessing a firearm in a house or a car that really were not possessing it. We have fought tirelessly for clients and have had their charges dismissed or won at trial. Do not give up your rights easily. And don’t offer statements to law enforcement officers without first having spoken with an experienced St. Paul, criminal defense attorney.
