Boston Lawyers Defending Felons in Possession of a Firearm

If you have a previous conviction for a felony crime and are found to have knowingly possessed a firearm you are likely to face federal criminal charges. The potential consequences of such a charge are severe and can result in a decades-long prison sentence. That is why retaining experienced legal counsel who understands the federal criminal justice system is so important.

Boston felon in possession of a firearm defense lawyer David Yannetti and his associates have decades of combined legal experience. Attorney Yannetti is a former prosecutor who understands how the government is likely to build its case against you. He will use this knowledge to help you build the strongest possible defense against these criminal charges.

The Amount of Time between a Conviction and a New Charge is Meaningless

Many people assume that a decades-old conviction will no longer “count” when it comes to owning a firearm. However, that is simply not the case. You can be convicted of a felony as an eighteen-year-old and find that you have later run afoul of the law well into adulthood as a result of being caught with a firearm.

Attorney Yannetti will thoroughly investigate the circumstances leading up to your charge. Perhaps the weapon belonged to someone else and you were unaware of its presence. Perhaps the police improperly gathered evidence or otherwise violated your rights. Mr. Yannetti and his associates will work tirelessly to provide you with a strong defense that is designed to achieve the best possible results.
