Experience Matters In Defending Against Weapons Charges

The right to bear arms under the Wisconsin and federal constitutions is not absolute. Wisconsin law provides prosecutors with ample ammunition to pursue illegal possession and other weapons charges. If you are facing any kind of weapons charge or possible enhanced penalties to other charges related to a gun or other weapon, it is critical for you to speak with a skilled lawyer who has a deep understanding of Wisconsin gun crime laws.
