Protecting Your Rights With Strong Representation

Were you charged with carrying a concealed weapon?

You need an experienced criminal defense attorney on the case if this charge is laid against you. A charge of carrying a concealed handgun the first time is a Class 1 misdemeanor under Colorado law, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to 364 days in jail. Under CRS 18-12-102, merely knowingly having an illegal weapon in your possession is a Class 1 misdemeanor.

A subsequent gun offense amounts to a Class 5 felony punishable by a fine of up to $100,000 and up to three years in prison.

You should contact us even if you’re facing a misdemeanor weapons offense. Gun crimes carry a particularly harsh stigma in our nation’s climate, so you will need a good criminal defense attorney to defend your case adequately.
