Weapons Crimes Span A Broad Range Of Offenses
“My weapons crime experience includes defending a client from Chicago who was charged with felony assault for allegedly knifing a man in a downtown bar. He faced a presumptive prison term, but after a protracted legal battle and with trial appearing imminent, we settled the case with the result that the client was not a lifelong convicted felon. Instead, he received service of local jail time with work release in his home state.” – Attorney Leunig
Carrying A Weapon Can Increase Penalties For Other Crimes
Weapons charges can include:
- Unlawful discharge
- Violating concealed carry law
- No license/permit
- Felon in possession
- Fleeing a police officer with a weapon
- Assault with a dangerous weapon
- Aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery
When a weapon is found during the commission of another crime, you will face more severe charges and penalties. You don’t have to use the weapon in the crime; just having it on you is enough. For example, you can be charged with first-degree robbery if you have a weapon on you during the offense. If you are convicted, you can face penalties of up to 20 years in prison and up to $35,000 in fines.

….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
Thank you very much for your legal representation and answering all my questions. I will definitely recommend your legal services to others in need. Again, cannot thank you enough for your advice/help in my case.
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude again for your outstanding efforts to obtain the exceptional outcome on my case. I have known you for years, from my previous career in the legal field. Even though I had not worked for you directly, I was impressed and aware of your talent as an attorney. I have much admiration for your ability and command of the law, the respect you have from other attorneys and prosecutors, and how you reverentially treat and defend your clients with conviction and vigor! I truly appreciate your way of putting my mind at ease and approach of communicating the steps of action, keeping me informed in the process. Your efforts and excellent outcome on my case only confirm what I already knew, that I made the right choice in you for my attorney! I will gladly, and without hesitation, refer anyone who needs legal representation to your services! Thank you again, John.
I can’t thank you enough for all of the guidance and support you’ve given me these past few months. I feel very fortunate to have worked with you during this somewhat unpleasant experience.
It takes a good lawyer and supportive family – and even the worst situation can have a positive result! His life would have been very different had he not had you for his lawyer, I doubt that he would have accomplished many of the milestones he made since that time…
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
I just wanted to thank you for your help with my recent case. It was nice to have someone on my side. Thank you for helping me get a favorable outcome in my case.
There are really no words to express our gratitude and thanks. You have done your job well and are to be commended for your efforts. You have treated us with dignity and respect – precious commodities that are close to the soul. You treated us as more than like a client – you treated us as a friend. Thanks for caring and your support. You’re one in a million!
Thank you for the crafty work you did for me in regards to the driving infraction that took place on October 30th when I was pulled over and charged with DWI… Thank you once again for your support and earning my trust. You have built my confidence and I will use your services in the future, hopefully, it will only be through referring others to you.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to you John! You made a very stressful situation sooo much easier for me and I will never forget your kindness and generosity. I give you all the credit for saving my sanity throughout this nightmare. I will keep my promise and send all of my “troubled” friends your way too – you are without a doubt a very talented attorney. Thank you – Thank you – Thank you!
