In recent years, we have seen several gun-related tragedies and a flood of media coverage. While these horrifying situations certainly are tragedies, they do not change the fact that Americans have constitutional rights. If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a gun crime, you need an experienced lawyer on your side who can aggressively fight to protect your rights and defend your freedom.
As a gun crimes attorney with extensive experience defending clients against a broad range of criminal charges, I can help. Gun crimes cover a wide range of offenses that can arise in a variety of contexts. It is crucial that you have a knowledgeable attorney on your side from start to finish in the legal process. The conviction of a gun crime can have serious repercussions throughout nearly all aspects of your life.
It is the goal of Joseph J. Rodgers, Chartered, to limit your exposure to these consequences through negotiation with the prosecutor’s office and aggressive courtroom defense. I also work with experts to review evidence in your case to determine if charges can and should be reduced, dismissed or dropped.
