Weapon Charges Attorney in Richmond

Call Our Criminal Defense Lawyers for 24/7 Advocacy

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, lawmakers have established several laws that deem the use or possession of various weapons illegal and even criminal. Penalties vary depending on the circumstances of the crime, such as the weapon used, the harm caused, the location, the age of the offender, and any other criminal intent or act involved.

A weapon is defined as an object used to cause harm, death, or destruction. Examples include:

  • Firearms (guns, rifles, etc.)
  • Knives
  • Slingshots
  • Brass knuckles

Prior criminal history affects the severity of the punishment as well, which makes hiring a competent and reliable attorney even more important. At Carlson & Collier we have 60+ years of collective experience and skill in handling weapons charges and related criminal cases. Call us immediately if you have been charged with unlawful use or possession of a weapon so that we can help you develop an effective case strategy.
