Best Gun Crime Lawyer

For weapons and gun offenses, an experienced criminal defense attorney is required. If you have been arrested or charged with being in possession of a firearm or ammunition without a license, carrying a concealed weapon without a conceal and carry permit, or being charged with a firearm-related offense in California, you will quickly realize that you face severe penalties and punishments.

We represented people from all walks of life for gun offenses and weapons charges. He has represented off-duty security guards, housewives on shopping trips, convicted felons, hunters, out-of-state visitors who are legally allowed to carry firearms in their own states, antique gun collectors, military servicemen, fans of shooting and firearms, and competitive sharpshooters. The one thing they all had in common is that they found themselves in a position of having to explain their possession of firearms to the police.

Potential Punishments for California Weapons Crimes

Depending on the particular weapon offense of which you are accused, you may face a misdemeanor or felony charge. For many misdemeanor charges, you can be punished by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. However, felony convictions for a gun crime can lead to three years in prison and fines reaching $10,000.

Keep in mind some weapons charges are wobblers, meaning they can be charged or sentenced as either a misdemeanor or felony. When facing a wobbler, you will want an attorney who will go to bat for you and seek the lowest possible charge and punishment.

Weapons May Impact Other Charges

While you can be charged with a crime specifically related to a firearm, you can also be charged with a more serious offense if the police believe you possessed a weapon during a criminal act or used a weapon in the commission of a crime. A clear example is the difference between assault and assault with a deadly weapon. Weapons like guns are always an aggravating factor that raises the level of the charge for a crime.

Common weapons charges include:

  • Assault

  • Assault with a deadly weapon

  • Carrying a concealed weapon

  • Illegal selling, possession, or distribution of a weapon

  • Possession of an illegal assault weapon

Further, if you are a convicted felon or if this is your second or subsequent offense, you face increased penalties and harsher consequences.

Misdemeanors vs. Felonies

As with any crime, punishments are based on the specific circumstances of your arrest, the severity of the crime committed, and the amount of damage that occurred. While each crime is unique, they are generally classified as misdemeanors or felonies. These charges range from illegal possession of a firearm without a permit and brandishing a deadly weapon, both misdemeanors, to felony assault with a deadly weapon that carries up to six years in prison if the weapon in question is semi-automatic. The lawyers know the laws and can help create a defense while representing you in court.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
