Weapons Offenses: Firearm Defense Attorneys In Colorado
Many people are fond of their ability to carry a firearm, which can be a source of protection and self-defense. The constitutional right to bear arms is commonly cited as a basis for gun ownership and use, and some Americans consider it to be one of their most sacred freedoms. However, criminal charges involving weapons are taken very seriously by prosecutors and law enforcement authorities — and these charges, ironically, can lead to a very real loss of freedom.
If you have been charged with a weapons-related offense in Colorado, you may be facing very serious consequences such as incarceration. You can defend yourself against the charges with aggressive defense representation from Pearson & Paris, P.C. Our attorneys are highly experienced at fighting charges involving:
- Prohibited use of a weapon
- Felony menacing
- Possession of a firearm while intoxicated

- Juveniles or those convicted of a felony
When Weapons Are Involved
When a weapon is involved in any criminal act or in any instance when police are called to a scene, the weapon itself can become the focus of attention. If you aimed a handgun at another person, took out a gun during an argument or used a weapon to settle a dispute in self-defense, you may be surprised to be facing felony charges, and you may be in need of the strongest legal help you can get.
