Gun Rights Lawyer in Coeur d’alene and all of North Idaho

Defending Your Rights

Owning a firearm is your legal right. Gun ownership is a way of life in North Idaho. State and Federal Prosecutors don’t always see it that way. Our lawyers will fight to protect your rights and will aggressively defend you against gun related charges.

  • Restoration of Firearm Rights
  • Possession of a firearm in a school zone
  • Illegal sale of a firearm
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Aggravated Assault or Attempted Murder
  • Discharging a gun illegally
  • Armed Robbery

State and Federal prosecutors can seek to enhance your charges and the possible sentence based on the use or possession of a firearm during the commission of an alleged crime.

Under Idaho and Federal law, convicted felons cannot carry a firearm, no matter what they intend to do with it. This is why it is critical to get your firearm rights restored if you have a felony conviction on your record. If you are accused of illegally possessing a firearm, you need experienced lawyers on your side.
