Firearms & Weapon Offenses Lawyer in Miami

Types of Weapons Cases we handle:

• Discharge of a Firearm in Public
• Carrying a Concealed Firearm
• Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon
• Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds

Firearm and weapon offenses are taken very seriously in Florida and can result in severe consequences.  Those who are prosecuted often did not realize they were committing an illegal offense. For example, convicted felony offenders are not permitted to possess a firearm, and even prior convictions for some offenses that are not felonies can result in a lifetime firearm possession ban. Also, the definition of a weapon in Florida is very broad, and can include knives, switchblades, pocket knives, pistols, revolvers, shotguns, rifles, machetes and razors.

If you or someone you know has been arrested or charged with a weapons offense, contact the Offices of Benjamin & Melmer for a free consultation.
