If you were arrested for a violation of Michigan weapons offenses laws, you may already realize that the charges are extremely serious. What you may not know is that an arrest is just the beginning of the criminal process. There are multiple opportunities to fight the allegations, especially considering that the prosecution must prove each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. The court will entertain defenses at various stages of the case, so you may get a dismissal or other positive outcome with a strong strategy.

Without a legal background, you are at a disadvantage in trying to defend yourself against an experienced prosecutor. Instead of putting your rights at risk, trust David G. Moore, Attorney at Law, to overcome challenges. As a former prosecutor, he is aware of the tactics that work in weapons crime cases. Mr. Moore will consider all possible opportunities to reduce the charges, such as through plea bargaining. However, he is ready to take the battle to court and advocate on your behalf at trial when there are solid defenses. 

To learn more about ways to contest the allegations, please contact David G. Moore, Attorney at Law. A skilled Portage weapons offenses lawyer can explain options.
