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.

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!
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
Thank you so much for everything! I appreciate the time you took before I was an actual client as well as during the process. You’re obviously good at what you do and I’m thankful for the outcome! Thanks again!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for representing me…. You did an outstanding job with my case and you put some faith in my heart that not all attorney’s are just out for the “mighty buck”. I really felt like you invested more than just a “legal strategy” in my case. It meant the world to me!
Thank you for all the hard work you put into [my grandson’s] case. It cost a lot of money but saving [my grandson’s] reputation and future is far more important. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the same situation.
….I am very pleased with how things turned out. Having never had to navigate the legal system before I knew I could count on you to handle it properly. Your breadth of experience, superior communication and knowing that I was your #1 priority when we talked was very reassuring. I would be delighted to recommend your services to future clients.
I just wanted to let you know how much [my son] and I appreciated your professionalism and help with is court case. You were great to work with and are very good at what you do. We could tell that you were respected by the employees/judge at the court and we are so glad we didn’t get that other guy to help us who I had called originally.
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.
I so appreciate your entire team’s efforts in my case. Your hard work, diligence and heads-up play really made all the difference in the outcome. I will forever be indebted.
I just wanted to communicate my thanks for the professional legal representation provided by you and your firm… Please know that I really appreciate the way you guided me through the somewhat foreign processes of our justice system. John, you really are an excellent attorney. You gave me confidence with a dose of reality all at the same time. Your experience, pragmatism, and charisma really made me feel good to have your representation.
