Weapon Offenses

Let Fredericksburg Criminal Defense Lawyers help you with your case.

The Second Amendment protecting our right to bear arms is a vital constitutional right going back to the founding documents of our nation. But running afoul of state and federal weapons charges can invite the scrutiny of local and state law enforcement, the FBI, and the ATF, among others. State and federal prosecutors have immense resources at their disposal to pursue severe criminal consequences against those charged with weapons offense crimes, including steep criminal fines and long prison sentences.

If you have been charged with a weapons offense or believe you are under investigation for a state or federal weapons offense charge in Virginia, it is imperative to obtain experienced criminal defense counsel and representation to defend your rights and your future. At Kurylo Gold & Josey, PLC in Fredericksburg, our experienced criminal defense attorneys work tirelessly to provide aggressive and intelligent defense for our clients’ constitutional rights through all aspects of criminal proceedings, and will fight to defend you against all weapons offense charges and related criminal consequences.  

Representing Virginia Defendants in Misdemeanor and Felony Weapons Offense Charges

The criminal defense attorneys of Kurylo Gold & Josey, PLC have years of experience in representing men, women, and business entities in criminal investigations and proceedings. We can work with you to defend your rights at the earliest signs of an investigation or immediately following an arrest on the following weapons charges:

  • Possession of an illegal weapon
  • Sales and trafficking of weapons
  • Bringing a weapon into a prohibited zone (i.e. school zones)
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon
  • Juvenile possession of a weapon
  • Use of a deadly weapon
  • Concealed weapons violations
  • Probation-related violations
  • Violations of restraining orders
  • Possession without a permit
  • Weapons charges related to drug possession and trafficking


Do Not Hesitate to Retain Experienced Defense Counsel

Attempting to “talk your way out of” potential weapons charges with law enforcement is often a recipe for disaster, as the state and federal weapons laws are complex and far-reaching, and speaking to law enforcement without an attorney present can easily provide prosecutors all the evidence they need to secure a conviction and a lengthy prison sentence.

By contacting one of the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Kurylo Gold & Josey, PLC at the first sign of potential legal problems, we will immediately step into action to protect your constitutional rights, speak to law enforcement on your behalf, and present your best defense.
