The criminal defenders at Alpert Schreyer draw on their long experience as former prosecutors to defend firearms and weapons cases in Maryland. We know weapons violations cases often stem from serious violations of your right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. In their eagerness to make an arrest that sticks, law enforcement officers can make mistakes; a few simply ignore the law. 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.
The gun charge defense attorneys at Alpert Schreyer have defended clients against a wide range of firearms and weapons charges, including:

The U.S. Constitution says it: The people have the right to keep and bear arms. But that right comes with a lot of responsibilities, and for many people, its easy to miss an important detail of weapons regulations. Most people facing firearms charges in Maryland are either owners of legal handguns who did’nt realize they were breaking a rule, or people whose criminal records prohibit them from owning firearms. Unfortunately, most prosecutors and politicians are eager to look tough on firearms violations, which means even the smallest violation can carry a mandatory minimum jail term that cannot be suspended. Law enforcement officers may legally search you if they even suspect that you could be carrying a gun.
