Federal Firearms Crimes

Federal firearm crimes are especially serious violations of the law that upon conviction can result in mandatory sentences that are as high as 10 years, 20 years, or more. The federal government adopts many cases from local law enforcement agencies in order to obtain higher sentences for offenders. The immediate involvement of a federal criminal defense attorney in Mississippi can protect your rights.

Federal firearm offenses include making a false statement to acquire a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a machine gun or silencer, or carrying or using a firearm during commission of a crime of violence or drug offense. We have defended these types of charges and have the experience necessary to help you if you have been charged with a federal firearms offense.

Our aggressive approach to defending firearms crimes includes arguing failure to possess firearms due to lack of knowledge, lack of control, or mere proximity. Whether at the investigative stage, during pre-trial negotiations with the U.S. Attorney’s Office or at trial, our attorneys seize every opportunity to find all weaknesses in the government’s case.

Peter H. Barrett and William C. Barrett both have significant experience with defending federal firearm offenses. If you’re under investigation or have been charged with a gun crime, contact P. & W.
