Federal Firearm Crimes
Even with the protection of the second amendment to ensure our right to keep and bear arms, gun laws in the United States have never been more oppressive. Federal weapons offenses are extremely serious crimes that can result in life-changing consequences if you are convicted. If you have been arrested for any type of federal firearm crime, it is important that you have a dedicated defense lawyer representing you.

We have successfully represented numerous clients in Rhode Island and Massachusetts in these notoriously complex and often highly contested cases.
