Vancouver, Washington, Attorney Defending Firearms Rights

Carrying a firearm is a fundamental right, deeply embedded in the U.S. Constitution and American culture. If you are convicted of certain crimes, however, this right can be taken away. If this has happened to you, an attorney can explain your options for restoring your right to own firearms.

I have been working as a lawyer for 30+ years, helping people like you with firearms rights restoration cases, as well as other areas of law. I know that for hunters and other gun enthusiasts, this loss of gun rights can affect your quality of life. Do not wait to contact my Vancouver, Washington, law firm to schedule a consultation. I can assess your case and explain how I may be able to help.

Defending And Restoring The Right To Carry A Gun

If you are convicted of certain felonies or a domestic violence misdemeanor, your right to own and carry a firearm is automatically revoked. Although there are federal and state laws dealing with firearm restrictions, only state law provides a method for restoration of firearms rights.

Carrying a gun is a fundamental American right, and I can help you defend or restore that right.

You can qualify for firearms rights restoration:

  • After five years for a felony conviction
  • After three years for a misdemeanor

I will help you file a petition in superior court and ask a judge to reinstate your right to carry a firearm. I will work closely with you and explain your options throughout the process.

30+ Years Of Experience Defending Clients From The Powerful Government

Since becoming a lawyer 30+ years ago, I have defended clients in countless criminal defense matters, as well as firearms rights restoration matters. I became an attorney because I wanted to help people. I make my clients my number one priority, because I know that when you are facing criminal charges, you are outmanned and outnumbered by a powerful government.
