Los Angeles Weapons Defense Attorney

Weapon Charges in Los Angeles

Defense lawyer Robert M. Bernstein is a former prosecutor who has now dedicated his career to protecting the rights and liberties of those individuals who have been arrested for or charged with a criminal offense. Criminal weapons charges are an area of practice where Attorney Bernstein is experienced and qualified and can obtain exceptional results for his clients.

A weapons charge can include quite a broad number of criminal offenses, ranging from possession of a concealed weapon to assault with a deadly weapon. At times, certain weapons charges can be added as enhancements, additional penalties, on a sentence for a conviction for another crime, such as robbery or domestic violence.

Not all weapons charges involve guns; in fact California law leaves “deadly weapon” open to a broad interpretation. For instance, a knife, blunt object or even a hand or foot could be deemed a deadly weapon in California. At the Law Offices of Robert M. Bernstein, some of the types of weapons charges that we handle include:

  • Possession of a concealed weapon
  • Possession of an illegal firearm or weapon
  • Ex-felon in possession of a firearm
  • Illegal sale of a firearm
  • Use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime (assault, robbery, drug offenses)
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Discharging a firearm

Protecting Your Rights & Best Interests

Often, a search and seizure will lead to the police discovering an illegal weapon. When this is the case, Attorney Bernstein will thoroughly review the circumstances of the search and of your arrest to determine if law enforcement violated your rights in any way, or if they conducted an illegal search and seizure. If so, Los Angeles criminal lawyer Robert Bernstein will use this to your advantage to achieve a victory in your case.

Accused of a weapons charge in Los Angeles? When arrested and facing criminal charges, there is no question that you will need a defense lawyer in order to have any chance of avoiding a conviction and harsh penalties. Although some weapons charges (such as possession of a firearm) may be misdemeanor offenses, other weapons charges are felonies and may result in up to 20 years or more added on to your prison sentence for another crime. Los Angeles Defense Attorney Robert Bernstein is exceptionally qualified to defend your charges.
