Milwaukee Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you have been arrested for a weapons violation crime, it could likely
constitute a felony crime. If you are convicted, the criminal penalties
comprising your sentencing will be severe. Both the force of the prosecution
and the related punishments following conviction will escalate significantly
if your weapons violation charges are related to another alleged crime,
such as armed robbery, assault, or carjacking.

the most serious of criminal cases, such as those involving gun crimes,
you want the Law Offices of Christopher J. Cherella. With more than 20

of Investigation (FBI) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives (ATF) are backing them. We do not back down – ever –

Sophisticated Defense for All Weapons Charges
The beginning of a solid defense against gun charges considers what the
prosecution knows, what it does not, and how much it needs to prove to
secure a conviction. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Cherella can anticipate
the prosecution’s strategy before any hearings even begin. This
“one-step ahead” tactic brings initiative to your case that
will better uphold your right to the presumption of innocence. If the
legal opposition in your case is not prepared to go toe-to-toe with someone
who has experience handling complex
federal crime cases, they will struggle to gain any footing in the courtroom.
Weapons violations charges we can help defend include:
A complete dismissal of your charges is the optimal goal after we accept
your weapons violations case. If there is strong physical evidence against
you, we may need to begin considering how your charges can be minimized,
perhaps down from a felony to only a misdemeanor. In turn, this can reduce
your sentencing to something more manageable and fair. We are always looking
for options to secure you the absolute best possible outcome and will
keep you in the know when an important decision must be made, such as
whether or not to consider a plea bargain.
Protect Your 2nd Amendment Rights
Our Milwaukee gun crimes attorney respects any worries you may have regarding
your Second Amendment rights to bear arms. We always approach weapons
violations cases with this in mind. If you were arrested for possessing
a gun that was gifted or inherited to you without any foreclosed knowledge
on its illegality, we are able to review Wisconsin’s restriction
and registration laws with you, potentially using your lack of information
to your advantage.
