Illegal Firearm Sale or Transfer
Defending Against Gun Charges at Trial and on Appeal
Many people, including lawyers, believe that a gun sale or transfer must involve a federally licensed gun dealer. That is wrong. They also believe that "paperwork" must be completed at the time of the transfer. That is wrong. When Attorney Driscoll handles just the appeal, he must correct these misconceptions after conviction when his client is likely incarcerated.
Gun sales and transfers are heavily regulated by State and federal law. These laws sometimes conflict, for example Massachusetts and federal law treat a prohibited person differently. The rules for gun sales or transfers depend on a number of factors best determined and analyzed by a gun lawyer. After all, gun crimes result in stiff penalties and collateral consequences affecting your future.
You are not just charged with just any crime, you are facing a gun crime. Why wouldn't you seek out a criminal defense lawyer focused on gun law?
Attorney Driscoll keeps abreast of changes in Massachusetts and federal firearm laws. He deciphers the conflicts between them and examines minute details in the gun laws. Meticulous preparation and review of the facts alleged and the extensive body relevant gun law available is necessary to break down the prosecutor's case--at trial or on appeal.
No two gun cases are the same. Identifying and challenging the most minute details can change the outcome of your case. Protect yourself and your future. To learn more, call 978-846-5184 Attorney William Driscoll today.
