Ontario Violent Crimes Defence Lawyers
Firearms and weapons offences are serious matters, where the penalties attached are becoming more severe. Revisions to the criminal code have involved enhancing minimum sentences related to these charges, meaning that a conviction could result in a surprisingly long period of incarceration, in addition to other penalties.
The criminal defence lawyers at the law firm of Hicks Adams possess more than a century of combined experience. When you choose us, that experience and the knowledge that comes with it will be brought to bear to protect your rights.
Defence Against All Firearms and Weapons Charges
Our lawyers can defend against all types of gun crimes, as well as charges involving other weapons, including knives and clubs. Charges we frequently defend against include possession of an unauthorized firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
Firearms Charges and Other Criminal Charges
In many cases, firearms and weapons charges do not stand alone. They are related to other criminal charges, serving to make the consequences of a conviction more serious. For example, a charge of assault with a firearm will attract a more significant sentence than a simple assault charge. Our primary objective is to achieve an acquittal for our clients.
Our lawyers also defend against:
• Drug charges involving firearms
• Robbery charges involving firearms
• Sexual assault involving firearms
We also handle all matters related to guns and gangs cases.
