Have You Been Charged With Felon In Possession Of A Firearm?
If you were convicted of a felony, you have been stripped of your right to bear arms. Even living in a house with someone who possesses guns and keeps them on the premises is illegal.
At Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers are aggressive litigators. We use every tool in our arsenal to defend clients against unlawful possession of firearms charges, and keep them out of jail. Located in Atlanta, Cohen & Hirsch helps convicted felons throughout the state defend against unlawful gun possession charges.
Building A Defense Against Unlawful Possession Of Firearms
In Georgia, convicted felons who are caught in possession of firearms face serious felony charges, steep fines and up to five years in prison. If your prior felony conviction was for a “forcible felony” — a crime involving violence or the threat of physical force — you will be sentenced to five years in prison.
If you are on probation for a prior conviction, being charged with unlawful possession of a firearm may cause your probation to be revoked, returning you to prison to serve your original sentence.
We Work To Obtain Your Best Outcome In Your Case
At Cohen & Hirsch, we know our way around the courtroom and we aren’t afraid of a fight. Our attorneys are experienced litigators and we prepare every case for trial. Because the prosecution knows we are prepared to battle it out in court, it comes to the bargaining table with better plea offers. When the deals are good, we advise our clients to take the deal. However, if we believe a better result can be obtained through trial, we will take your case to court and fight for your rights.
