Weapons Possession Defense Lawyers In Annapolis

Maryland has no provision in its constitution that guarantees the right to bear arms. You need a permit to purchase a handgun and carry it on your person. In addition, it is illegal to have many other types of weapons on your person or in your car, including brass knuckles, switch blades, nunchucks and other self-defense weapons. The broad scope of these laws can result in person who is law-abiding in other respects being charged with a felony weapons possession crime.

Defending Your Rights And Liberty

At Cochran and Chhabra, LLC, in Annapolis, Maryland, we vigorously represent people charged with weapons crimes in state and federal courts. We use our comprehensive understanding of Maryland weapons laws and our trial advocacy skills to defend the rights and freedom of our clients. When you choose us to defend you, we will work diligently to obtain a dismissal of charges or another positive outcome for you.

Defenses Based On Illegal Search And Seizure Methods

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits law enforcement authorities from using "unreasonable search and seizure" methods to obtain evidence. When defending you, we will carefully examine the sequence of events leading to the discovery of the weapon or weapons in your possession. We will seek to suppress evidence that was illegally obtained by the police whenever possible. If we are successful, this could lead to the dismissal of the charge or charges you face. Other potentially successful defense strategies may exist as well.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in state and federal criminal courts in Maryland. If a trial is necessary, we will aggressively represent you at all stages of the legal process.
