Do You Need a Gun Lawyer in DuPage County, Illinois?

There are a variety of serious charges that are related to weapons of all types. Even common everyday items can be termed a “weapon” under certain circumstances, but the majority of weapons involved in such cases are firearms. If you possess a gun without a permit, this is a criminal offense in Illinois, and you face steep fines and possible jail time, depending upon the circumstances of the case.

Our gun lawyers serve DuPage County, including the cities of Wheaton, Naperville, Aurora, Westmont, Oak Brook, and Lombard.

Understanding  Illinois Gun Laws

Every person who owns a gun in Illinois must have a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID card). If you are caught possessing a gun and do not have the FOID card, you are in serious legal trouble. If you have a criminal record it becomes even more dangerous with regard to penalties.

When a gun has been used in the commission of another criminal offense, the penalties are radically increased. Any gun or weapon offense requires the skill of a gun lawyer familiar with Illinois firearm laws to assist you in fighting for your freedom.

Often the courts do not look kindly upon those who are charged with gun or weapon charges, and state lawmakers have created severe penalties for those who violate the laws. Many individuals are not even aware that certain actions are highly illegal, such as carrying a weapon in your vehicle for protection. In order to legally carry a weapon in your vehicle, you are required to enclose the gun in a case, and it cannot be loaded. If you are stopped and the gun is found, in many cases you will be charged with unlawful use of a weapon – a Class IV felony offense. If convicted, you will face the remainder of your life as a convicted felon, with all the problems and difficulties that come with that designation.

Types of Weapon Offenses Our Experienced Defense Attorneys Handle:

  • Possession of a Firearm Without an FOID Card
  • Unlawful Use of a Weapon
  • Illegal Possession of a Weapon
  • Aggravated or Reckless Discharge of a Firearm
  • Concealed Weapons Charges
  • Possession of a Weapon in the Commission of a Crime
  • Transportation of Guns Across State Lines
  • Illegal Importation of Guns
  • Illegal Distribution of Guns
  • Federal Weapons Charges
