Defending Clients Against Firearm Charges

Rhode Island is unlike other states in that it has set up its own gun court - a special court, involving a single judge that handles all of Providence County's weapons cases.

The most common offenses are unlicensed possession of firearms and committing a crime with a firearm. Many gun cases that we see also involve drugs.

Knowledge Of The Law Is Always The Strongest Defense

If you have been charged with a weapons crime, it is important to hire a defense attorney who is knowledgeable about search and seizure and probable cause. An attorney who is not afraid to say that the police overstepped their bounds.

We Know State And Federal Gun Laws From Both Sides

Our most valuable credential is that all the attorneys at Lynch & Pine have worked on weapons cases as prosecutors for the state. We take state and federal gun cases. We know the state weapons laws cold because we lived with them every day.

We are trial lawyers, tested under fire. We found our calling in the courtroom: scrutinizing cases from both sides, always poking for holes, and on the lookout for errors. We know how your accusers approach cases, and we can readily identify defenses in your case.

Our Experience At The Service Of Your Rights

Think of it this way: your freedom may depend on our experience. There are attorneys advertising for firearms cases that have never been in an actual trial. We have handled cases where the previous lawyer advised his or her client to plead without fully investigating all the defenses to the charge.

You do not want your rights to be in clumsy hands. Weapons charges are too serious to trust to beginners.
