An Aggressive Defense Against Weapons Charges
Weapon offenses, including gun crimes, are taken very seriously in Texas. Prosecutors who may be reasonable to work with on so-called nonviolent cases take notice when weapons are involved in criminal activity. If convicted, you face serious legal consequences and may end up serving time in jail or prison. You can also lose your weapons and the right to own or carry a firearm for the rest of your life.
Because of these harsh consequences, you need an aggressive and experienced criminal law attorney who will protect your rights and provide you with the type of defense necessary for positive results. Lawyer Russ Hunt, Jr., can be your ally and advocate. You can benefit from his vast experience and knowledge of the laws surrounding weapon-related crimes. He will aggressively defend your rights.
Russ is board-certified in criminal law through the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. That means he has a level of training beyond what many defense lawyers attain. Additionally, he has almost 30 years of experience representing thousands of defendants across Central Texas.
State And Federal Gun Laws
The laws have changed extensively in recent years regarding who is eligible to own or carry a firearm. These laws also impact where, how and when you can carry a firearm. When you’re facing gun charges, it’s critical to work with someone who knows these laws and can fiercely protect your rights.
If accused of any of the following crimes, you should consult Russ immediately:
- Unlawfully carrying a weapon
- Concealed handgun license violations
- Concealed guns or firearms at airports or other public places
- Unlawfully brandishing or discharging a weapon
- Illegal sale of a weapon
- Being a felon in possession of a firearm
- Possession of a prohibited weapon
- Possession of a weapon at an airport or school
Russ handles gun and weapon crimes at both the state and federal levels. He also handles cases involving violent offenses such as assault and domestic violence. When a gun or weapon is allegedly involved in these crimes, you will face more serious charges and harsher potential penalties.
