These are violations of your rights that can end a criminal case or significantly reduce your charges.

      Our job is to search through your case for these and other circumstances that can help us eliminate or reduce your charges, roll back criminal penalties, or mount the best possible defense in the courtroom. We look forward to serving you from one of our five convenient offices in BowieFrederickLexington Park, and Waldorf.

      Types of Weapons Charges in Maryland

      There are a variety of circumstances under which a person may be charged with a weapons crime. Weapons offenses may also be considered separate charges in addition to those of other crimes. For example, a person may be arrested for a theft crime but can also be prosecuted for a weapons crime if one was involved.

      Some of the weapons crimes prosecuted under Maryland law include:

      • Possession of a concealed dangerous weapon
      • Publicly displayed possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure another in an unlawful manner
      • Possession of a knife, firearm, or any type of deadly weapon on public school property (unless authorized to do so)
      • Storing or leaving a loaded firearm in a place where the person knew or should have known that an unsupervised child could gain access to it
      • Wearing, carrying, or transporting a concealed or open handgun on the person or in a vehicle

      It is also possible for weapons crimes to aggravate other criminal charges. If you have been accused of a weapons crime or another crime that involved the possession or use of a dangerous or deadly weapon, you face an aggressive prosecution and significant penalties if convicted, which is why you must meet the prosecution with an equally aggressive defense.

      Firearm Charge Defense

      The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution represents a careful balancing act between an American’s right to bear arms and the need to regulate gun ownership and use. While this balance is meant to protect both rights and safety, the result is often a confusing sea of ever-changing gun laws that can be complex and difficult to follow.

      Most residents who possess a firearm want to do so legally. They don’t intend to break any gun laws, and they are often as dismayed to discover they have inadvertently done so. Unfortunately, gun crime is a “hot-button” issue in the U.S., and police and prosecutors zealously pursue weapons charges as a result. State gun crime laws may also be written to impose strict penalties, such as mandatory minimum jail or prison sentences.

      Penalties for Weapon-Related Convictions

      Many weapons-related convictions in Maryland come with stiff penalties. Jail time and/or significant fines are imposed in many weapons cases if a person is convicted. A person convicted of a weapons crime may also be forced to give up his or her weapon, perform community service, serve probation, pay court fees and costs, or carry out other tasks. A weapons conviction may even prevent the convicted person from purchasing or owning certain types of weapons in the future, no matter how careful he or she plans to be.

      stars

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
