Representing Individuals Facing Weapon Charges In Florida
At Jansen & Davis, P.A., we understand that a large number of criminal offenses involve weapons charges, including assault with a deadly weapon, concealed weapon charges, or possession of an illegal firearm. Several different weapons may qualify as “deadly” weapons in Florida, such as guns, knives, blunt objects, and maybe even one’s hand or foot. Many of these offenses have to do with being on parole or probation, wherein convicted felons, unfortunately, do not have the same 2nd Amendment right as free American citizens. Regardless of the circumstances, our firm can help.
The experienced attorneys at our firm can handle weapons charges including, but not limited to:
- Discharging a firearm
- Brandishing a firearm
- Illegal sale of a firearm
- Possession of a concealed weapon
- Ex-felon in possession of a firearm
- Possession of an illegal firearm or weapon
- Use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime
Search and seizures will often lead police to discover illegal weapons. When this occurs, an attorney from our firm will conduct a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding your search and arrest, to determine if law enforcement violated any of your rights. Contingent upon their findings, your Tallahassee criminal defense lawyer will use this information to your advantage for the best possible outcome in your case.

The Tallahassee criminal defense attorneys at Jansen & Davis, P.A., have the knowledge and experience to provide you with the representation you deserve.
