Jacksonville Weapons Charges Lawyer
It is your constitutional right to bear arms. As long as individuals follow all local, state and federal gun and weapons laws, there are rarely any problems. However, when law enforcement alleges that a crime was committed with a weapon or that a person illegally possessed or used a firearm, there may be serious legal consequences. With the help of a Jacksonville weapons charges attorney, you may be able to fight any weapons offenses that you may be facing.
At my office, I handle all types of weapons charges and other types of criminal law matters. I am Thomas M. Bell, a Florida criminal defense attorney who has been standing up for the rights of clients for 30 years.

Illegal Firearms and Other Types of Weapons Charges
Whether the charges pertain to a gun, assault rifle, knife, automatic weapon, automatic firearm or other type of weapon, any type of weapons charge is serious and must be treated accordingly. I use my vast experience and in-depth knowledge of the law to represent clients who are facing charges such as:
- Illegal possession of firearms
- Carrying a concealed firearm
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Improper exhibition of a weapon
- Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
Weapons Enhancements to Other Charges
If you are facing violent crime charges, such as assault or battery, the case may be complicated if a weapon was involved in the commission of the alleged crime. This is called an “enhancement” and means that the offender is subject to more serious consequences, such as the “10-20-life” guidelines. These apply to specific types of crimes and carry minimum prison sentences of: 10 years (if a firearm is carried), 20 years (if a firearm is discharged), and 25 years with the possibility of life (if someone is injured or killed by the discharging of the firearm).
