It is also noteworthy that weapon charges are not always or only gun related. Knives, bats and even bottles can be considered weapons depending on how they are used, exposing individuals to many of the same penalties they would face if they had used a gun in a similar setting. Our experienced weapons possession attorneys in San Diego, CA will fight aggressively to have the charges against your dismissed, or we will seek to have them reduced to a less serious offense. If that is not feasible based on the facts and circumstances of your particular case, we will focus our efforts on negotiating alternative sentencing and otherwise strive to limit your exposure to the harshest criminal penalties.
