Experienced Defense For Gun And Weapons Charges

Last updated on June 13, 2024

Being charged with an illegal gun, firearm or weapons violation can have devastating consequences on your life. At Rodriguez Law Firm, Inc., our experienced criminal defense lawyers, Mladenka Rodriguez and Frank Rodriguez, provide aggressive representation to protect your rights and future when facing these serious allegations in Northwest Indiana.

What’s At Stake With Gun/Firearms/Weapons Offenses

Indiana strictly prohibits the unlawful possession, sale, distribution or use of firearms, ammunition and other deadly weapons. Misdemeanor offenses can result in up to one year in jail, while felony charges carry potential prison sentences of six months to six years, depending on the circumstances. You may also face hefty fines, probation and a permanent criminal record.

The First Steps After A Gun Or Weapons Arrest

If you’ve been arrested or charged with a gun or weapons crime, the first crucial step is to invoke your right to legal counsel and avoid making any statements to law enforcement. Even seemingly innocuous comments can be misconstrued to incriminate you. If you call Rodriguez Law, our defense team can step in from the very start to begin planning your criminal defense strategy.

Ensuring Lawful Weapons Searches And Evidence Collection

Law enforcement must follow strict protocols when searching properties, vehicles and individuals for weapons. Our attorneys will fight to protect your constitutional rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. We examine every aspect of how evidence was obtained and recovered to identify potential violations.

The Impact Of Your Criminal Record On Weapons Cases

Those with previous weapons convictions or other offenses – such as felonies or violent crimes – often face enhanced, harsher penalties. We advocate for having past records expunged or sealed when possible to mitigate future impacts. Our goal is to pursue the most favorable resolution.

Let Former Prosecutors Handle Your Weapons Charge Defense
