Joliet Weapons Charges Attorneys

Criminal Defense Lawyers in Joliet and Plainfield

Weapons charges in Illinois are very serious and can result in severe penalties. Whether you face criminal charges from using or possessing a firearm, it's important to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you. At the Law Offices of Tedone and Morton, P.C., we are experienced in defending clients against all types of weapons charges. We understand the gun laws in Illinois and how to effectively defend against these charges.

Weapons Use and Possession Charges

Often weapons charges are brought against gun owners who are unaware of Illinois gun charges and unwittingly break them. For example, you must have a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card in order to carry a gun in your car and you must transport it unloaded in an enclosed case. Failure to do so can result in an unlawful use of a weapon charge, which in some cases is a felony. If you are convicted of this charge, you could face up to 3 years in prison and would be unable to legally own a gun for the rest of your life. This is a heavy penalty for breaking a law you may not have known about or understood.

Our attorneys aggressively represent those who have been charged with unlawful use and possession charges. We handle charges including:

  • Possession (concealed, loaded, or without a permit)
  • Possession by a convicted felon
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Possession of an illegal weapon other than a firearm (martial arts weapons)
  • Unlawful discharge of a firearm
  • Unlawful sale of a firearm
  • Unlawfully brandishing a firearm

We know how to effectively challenge the evidence against you and secure a favorable outcome in your case. We also represent those who are charged with using a gun during the commission of a crime such as robbery, sex crimes and drug offenses. No matter what the charge, we fight to protect your rights, your freedom and your criminal record.

If you or a loved one is facing a weapons charge, contact us to inquire about a free consultation to discuss your case. We defend clients in Plainfield, Joliet and throughout Will County, Grundy County, Kendall County, and beyond.
