La Plata & Waldorf Weapons Lawyer
We are prepared to fight and overcome criminal charges related to carrying a concealed handgun, possessing an illegal firearm, and other gun crimes.
In general, gun violence is always a problem for law enforcement. The criminal laws in the state of Maryland specify who may possess, carry, and use a weapon, and what weapons are always illegal. Maryland’s gun possession laws and concealed carry laws are designed to prevent, reduce, and—in an ideal world—put an end to gun violence. However, if you are charged with a weapons offense, it is your life that is on the line. You’ll need experienced, high-quality La Plata & Waldorf weapon offense lawyer, and you’ll need it immediately.
The Law Office of Hammad S. Matin, P.A. can protect your legal rights after being charged with a weapons offense, and advocate for justice on your behalf.
There are several laws that restrict how Maryland residents can carry, buy, or sell weapons. The penalties for charges stemming from these laws vary greatly depending on the seriousness of the offense, and whether the weapon was allegedly used to commit another crime. You may face prison time, fines, probation, and other consequences that will affect you indefinitely—for example, a conviction for a weapons offense on your permanent record can make it difficult to secure gainful employment. Even if you do not have a prior criminal history, you cannot expect leniency if you are convicted of a weapons offense. Fight the charge with the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

- Carrying a dangerous, concealed weapon
