Gun crime defense attorneys in Pierce County with a record of success
Prosecution of gun crime is now one of Washington’s highest law enforcement priorities. In June 2012, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington stated that “if you bring a gun to a crime, you will do time, and you will likely do federal time.” Just three months later, a proposal was floated in King County to crack down on juveniles who illegally carry guns. As Tacoma weapons crimes attorneys, we can tell you the message is clear: gun and weapons crimes will be more forcefully prosecuted than ever before.
While you have the constitutional right to bear arms, weapons charges carry some of the most severe penalties. You also have a right to legal representation when facing a criminal charge — a right you must exercise when facing weapons charges, whether they involve handguns, sawed-off shotguns, machine guns or switchblade knives. The Woods Law Office, PLLC can help. If you have been charged with a gun or other deadly weapons crime, defense attorney, retired military officer and former prosecutor Doug Woods has experience that can make the difference between dismissal, acquittal or reduced charges and steep fines and prison time.
