The nature of the weapons charge along with the criminal history of the suspected offender will always be taken into consideration, when weapons charges are processed. For instance, an individual with no criminal history, who is caught CCW without a permit will likely face misdemeanor charges, whereas an individual with an extensive criminal history may face felony charges – especially if their right to bear arms has already been repealed.

Speak with a concealed weapons defense lawyer if you have been arrested on a CCW offense. Our team has successfully represented clients facing both felony and misdemeanor weapons offenses.

First time offenders of California’s CCW laws can face fines of up to $1,000.00 and a full year of jail time. Repeat offenders and those who have been convicted on previous felony charges will face harsher penalties that include up to 3 years in the state penitentiary. Pick up the phone and call today, if any of the following conditions apply to you:

  • You were convicted of a felony charge prior to your concealed weapons offense
  • You knew or had good reason to believe that the firearm or weapon in your possession was stolen
  • You are a known, confessed or documented member of a street gang
  • Your entitlement to bear arms was repealed prior to the time of your arrest
  • A concealed weapons defense lawyer can examine the facts and details of your case and help you determine which legal defenses might be utilized to fight the charges. We offer free consultations. Call and schedule yours today.

Concealed Weapons ChargeSome of the available defenses to a CCW charge include:

  • Defendant was unaware of the presence of the firearm. This defense works well when the weapon in question is discovered in the trunk of a car or in a handbag or briefcase, and the possessor was unaware of its presence.
  • Defendant had successfully obtained a CCW permit prior to their arrest but failed to produce evidence of the documentation at the time of the apprehension and firearm discovery.
  • The concealed weapon was discovered in the home or business establishment owned by the defendant. It must be clarified that this defense is for individuals who: A.) have the right to bear arms, and; B.) literally own the place of business. It is not lawful for employees to simply take their guns into work with them.
  • The firearm was discovered through an illegal search and seizure procedure, and, therefore, obtained unlawfully and without the proper permit to conduct a search for such discovery.
  • If you have been arrested for CCW, speak with a concealed weapons defense lawyer from our firm today.

The gun laws in California can be complex, conditional and confusing. If you or a loved one is facing a concealed weapons charge, pick up the phone and give us a call today. We can review the details of your case and help you gain a better understanding of the circumstances you are facing.
