Fresno County Attorneys Who Understand Weapons Charges

Weapons charges often stem from police questioning someone for a different reason and conducting a subsequent search of a car, home or other property — possibly an illegal search. If you face weapons charges, it is important to take the matter seriously and retain the services of an experienced California criminal law attorney.

At Schweitzer & Davidian in Clovis, we have a comprehensive knowledge of California and U.S. weapons laws, and we defend individuals against a broad variety of weapons charges. There are subtle distinctions between a legal and illegal search, as well as a weapon that can be legally owned and one that is illegal under California gun laws. We have a comprehensive understanding of these laws and know when law enforcement officials have overstepped their boundaries.
