Have You Been Charged With Felon In Possession Of A Firearm?
If you were convicted of a felony, you have been stripped of your right to bear arms. Even living in a house with someone who possesses guns and keeps them on the premises is illegal.
Attorney Matt Hirsch is aggressive litigator. He uses every tool possible to defend clients against unlawful possession of firearms charges, and keep them out of jail. Located in Atlanta, Hirsch Criminal Defense helps convicted felons throughout the state defend against unlawful gun possession charges.
Building A Defense Against Unlawful Possession Of Firearms
In Georgia, convicted felons who are caught in possession of firearms face serious felony charges, steep fines and up to five years in prison. If your prior felony conviction was for a “forcible felony” — a crime involving violence or the threat of physical force — you will be sentenced to five years in prison.
If you are on probation for a prior conviction, being charged with unlawful possession of a firearm may cause your probation to be revoked, returning you to prison to serve your original sentence.
Working To Protect Your Rights In Gun Cases
Attorney Hirsch knows his way around the courtroom and is not afraid of a fight. He is an experienced litigator who prepares every case for trial. Because the prosecution knows he is prepared to battle it out in court, they often come to the bargaining table with better plea offers. When the deals are good, he advises clients to take the deal. However, if he believes a better result can be obtained through trial, he will take your case to court and fight for your rights.
