We Have 20+ years of Combined Experience
While the right to bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment, this right is not absolute and states are able to place certain restrictions. Even if you have a valid permit, the way in which you conduct your weapon can lead to serious criminal charges.
Items that are not commonly associated with being weapons, such as BB guns, baseball bats, and pocket knives, may qualify as being weapons under our state’s laws. If you have been charged with a weapon crime, it is important to immediately contact trustworthy and knowledgeable Connecticut criminal defense lawyers to represent your case. We have 20+ years of collective experience.
