Understanding the Role of a Second Amendment Lawyer

What kind of cases does a Second Amendment lawyer handle?

A Second Amendment attorney handles all types of cases involving firearms. For example, in many instances today, there are people who want to get their gun rights and Second Amendment rights restored. 

They want to be able to go hunting, teach their sons and daughters gun safety, go to the shooting range with friends, and to have the ability to defend themselves, their family and their property should the need ever arise.

A Second Amendment lawyer also will handle cases where your permit to purchase is denied, your application for a carry permit is denied, and where your purchase of a firearm was denied.

What are the potential outcomes in my case?

It depends on the seriousness of the charge, and the strength of the evidence. Additionally, it depends on your lawyer’s experience, the prosecutor, and the judge. Most cases are settled.

The elements that need to be addressed are:
  • Is the client going to be convicted of anything, and if so, what?
  • Will the client be required to do any jail time, and if so, how much, or how? For example, via community service, sentence to service, workhouse, prison?
  • Will the client be required to pay any fine?
  • What will the length and terms of probation be, if any?
  • Is restitution required?
  • Will the client be required to complete alcohol or drug treatment, domestic abuse programming, to register as a predatory offender, to complete random testing, or submit a DNA test?

When deciding if something is worth the money, one must consider the alternatives. There are only two other alternatives to a private defense attorney. One is to represent oneself (pro se), which is not a good idea because you’re going up against an experienced prosecutor. The other is to use a public defender, who will likely have a caseload too large to handle your case properly. A private defense attorney will commit themselves to your case.
