Federal Gun Cases
Protecting Your Second Amendment Rights In Federal Courts
The federal government takes weapons crimes extremely seriously. Whether it is the act of committing a crime with a firearm or trafficking in illegal weapons, a conviction will mean serious consequences.
Do not leave your defense to any attorney. At O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, in Tampa, we represent residents in Florida and throughout the United States whose freedoms and rights to own firearms are in danger due to federal gun charges. Our office has handled hundreds of complex federal criminal cases, and we can put our reputation for high-quality representation and client service to use for you.
Attorneys Who Will Protect Your Rights
Our founder, Mark J. O’Brien, is a former criminal prosecutor who now devotes himself, along with attorney Victoria E. Hatfield, to protecting the rights of people facing off with well-funded U.S. Attorneys.
When agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are knocking on your door, remember that you have a right to legal representation. Our lawyers can examine whether federal agents had proper search warrants or they committed an illegal search and seizure operation.
There is too much at stake not to take your case seriously. If you used a firearm in any violent crime or if you illegally owned a firearm because of a prior conviction, we can help. This is especially important if you have prior violent crime convictions, because it could expose you to armed career criminal sentencing enhancements.
Our results include obtaining not guilty verdicts on behalf of a client facing four counts of armed bank robbery with four counts of using and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence.
