Missouri Weapons Crimes Charges
Here in Missouri, the consequences for a conviction on weapons charges can have an extremely negative effect on your life. In fact, if you are convicted of a felony, you could lose your right to own a gun, no matter how responsible you are with your weapons.

I am an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can effectively represent you whether you are facing state or federal charges.
