Effective, Aggressive Weapons Charge Defense
The possession and use of firearms in Texas is strictly regulated. To carry a gun, you must have a permit issued by the state. You are also limited in where you can carry the firearm. For example, even if you are licensed, schools, bars or correctional facilities are all off-limits to guns.
Attorney Patricia Jay can help you mount a defense to gun charges. Starting with an examination of all the evidence, she will assess the options for a plea arrangement or even a straight dismissal depending on the facts of your case. She can assist in your defense for any weapons-related charge, including:
- Possession of an illegal weapon
- Illegal discharge of a firearm
- Felon in possession of a firearm
- Brandishing a weapon
Weapons charges, particularly felony weapons charges, can have long-lasting negative effects on your life, including potential jail time. Experienced criminal defense attorneys like Patricia Jay can take action and aggressively defend your rights.
Restoring Texas Gun Rights
The laws that restrict who may own a firearm in Texas are extremely complex, but also very important. For example, if you are a felon who is in possession of a gun, you can be arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm, which is a serious crime.
If you find yourself in the class of Texas citizens who cannot legally possess a gun, The Law Office of Patricia Jay can help. Through either a targeted lawsuit or a Request for Restoration of Firearm Rights, we will work to secure a return of your Second Amendment rights.
The Texas Department of Public Safety licenses individuals to carry concealed handguns within the state of Texas, evaluates the eligibility of applicants through criminal history background checks, and monitors those currently licensed to ensure their continued eligibility. If you are looking to restore your right to obtain a concealed weapon permit, attorney Patricia Jay can help.
