Accused Of A Gun Violation? Aiken & O’Halloran Can Help.
Our Fort Myers criminal defense attorneys have handled all types of gun crime cases in federal and state courts. As longtime hunters and shooting enthusiasts, attorneys Peter Aiken and Sean O’Halloran understand the importance of the Second Amendment and the constitutional right to bear arms. Attorneys Aiken and O’Halloran are strong proponents of Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and have litigated criminal cases where self-defense has been raised on behalf of falsely accused defendants.
If you have been charged with carrying a concealed firearm in Lee County, you may have a valid defense. You may have been the victim of an unlawful search or illegal stop. You may not have been correctly advised of your rights, including your right to refuse a search of your home or vehicle. You may not have been advised of your right to remain silent before making a statement or admission.
Decades Of Experience Defending Against Gun Crime Charges
Our attorneys have over 50 combined years of experience in criminal cases involving federal weapons violations, including cases involving silencers and other Class III weapons. We defend people accused of making straw purchases or lying on ATF gun purchase forms. We also defend people charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in both state court and the Southern District of Florida in federal court. We regularly litigate against the harsh federal sentencing guidelines and aggressively defend gun cases involving mandatory minimum sentences in state court. We often defend cases involving allegations of road rage in which a gun has been pointed or displayed. We know how devastating the “10-20-Life” sentencing rule can be in Florida.
Did you know that if you are convicted of domestic violence, the conviction affects your right to buy, own or carry a gun? Did you know that if you are placed on probation for even a misdemeanor offense, you cannot possess a firearm while on probation? Know your rights!
