Defense Against Gun and Weapons Charges
The Law Firm of Frank Stanley, PC, provides clients in Michigan and nationwide the benefit of more than 30 years of criminal defense experience. That experience has been used to successfully represent clients accused of felony gun and weapon charges of all types.
In one of many successes in gun crime cases, the firm defended a police officer who was accused of brandishing his service revolver in a night club. The firm was retained during the investigation phase, giving the firm the opportunity to work to convince the investigators and prosecutor that charges were not appropriate. The firm was successful and the client was never charged with a crime. Learn more about this and other successes.
Defense Against All Weapons Offenses
While most weapons offenses involve the use of guns, they can involve tasers, knives and other weapons as well. Cases may involve specific types of guns or implements that are illegal such as machine guns, silencers and other National Firearms Act (NFA) violations.
Attorney Frank Stanley and his legal team defend against all weapons charges, including:
- Unlawful manufacture of deadly weapons
- Unlawful sale of deadly weapons
- Unlawful possession of deadly weapons, concealed weapons or otherwise
- Furnishing deadly weapons to minors
- Alien possessing weapons
- Felon possessing a firearm
In many cases, mitigating circumstances exist, which may reduce or even negate criminal culpability in weapons cases. One of the most common is brandishing a weapon for purposes of self defense. The firm is well-versed in the various defenses available in these cases.
The firm handles weapons offenses tied to other crimes such as drug charges and theft offenses. The alleged use of a firearm or other weapon during the commission of a crime can lead to heightened penalties, and these cases must be defended appropriately.
