Firearms Violations

Palm Beach Gun Charge Lawyer

Gun violations are taken very seriously in Florida. If you are convicted of possessing an illegal firearm or using a weapon to carry out a crime, a minimum mandatory prison sentence would be applied. When you have so much at stake, make sure you have an experienced gun charge defense attorney on your side. You cannot afford anything less.

Decades of Experience Handing Gun Charge Allegations in Palm Beach County

I am William Wallshein, a West Palm Beach County gun charge lawyer with more than 29 years of experience. I am a former Florida state prosecutor with five years of experience who knows firsthand how gun charges are prosecuted at the state and federal level. I am here to help level the playing field against you. If law enforcement violated your constitutional rights or made any false assumptions, this should not be ignored. I am committed to protecting your constitutional rights at all costs.

Without a concealed weapons permit, no one is authorized to carry a firearm in Florida — even for self defense. Gun violations can be punishable with misdemeanor or felony charges. Do not underestimate the seriousness of a weapons violation. Contact my Palm Beach gun charge defense firm for a free consultation. I know the law and will make sure your rights are protected at every turn possible.

Protecting Your Rights Against Firearm Accusations

I have the skills, tenacity and legal resources to protect your right whether you are facing a felony or misdemeanor weapon violation, such as:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Possessing an unregistered firearm
  • Possessing a firearm without a permit
  • Illegally firing a firearm in public
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Possessing brass knuckles
  • Possessing a switchblade

Often gun charges stem from assault or domestic violence charges. I am prepared to expose any mistakes or false assumptions law enforcement made during your arrest. If you acted out of self defense, I will fight for an acquittal. Surveillance video footage, witness testimony, or medical records could prove to be invaluable in showing you acted out of self defense.

I am also committed to uncovering any violations of your constitutional rights. Law enforcement would have needed a valid reason to pull your car over. Once stopped, a police officer can only search a vehicle if something questionable is in plain sight. If the office failed to have a reasonable suspicious to conduct a search, this could be grounds to fight the charges. Every weapons charge is fact specific. You may have not even known the weapon was in the car, if someone else in your household had last driven the vehicle. My job is to undermine the prosecution's case by raising doubt in the evidence secured against you.
