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.

This letter is to thank you for representation that was above and beyond what we expected to receive. You are a clever, extremely professional, comforting individual and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that you care about the outcome as much as we did.

We felt comforted by your portrayal of experience and knowledge. You were protective, well-prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see the others had respect for you and what you had to say. John did everything he promised and more. He comforted us when we were worried, and fought hard for us. He was our friend. I would recommend anyone to John. John is truly a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation. Sincerely yours.
