A weapon is more than just a gun. Depending on how it is used, a weapon can be a shoe, a car or a fist. Even law-abiding citizens can get into trouble and find themselves charged with weapons violations.
I'm defense lawyer Keith Rutman. From my law offices in San Diego and Murrieta I have defended countless people facing weapons charges in Southern California courts. I believe in giving my clients the best possible service. This means providing a clear description of the charges against you and your defense options.
If you have been charged with any of the following crimes, contact my San Diego defense firm to schedule a free half hour consultation:
- Possessing a firearm without a conceal and carry permit
- Brandishing a firearm
- Possessing assault weapons or other illegal firearms
- Possessing a firearm after conviction of a felony or a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction
- Unlawful sale of firearms
- Possessing or using a gun in the commission of a crime such as armed robbery, a gang crime, or a drug crime
Defending a Wide Range of Weapons Charges Since 1989
If you are convicted of a felony weapons offense, future employers and landlords may use your conviction against you. If you are convicted of a weapons offense, you may spend years in prison and lose your right — and the right of people who live with you — to own or possess a firearm.
I have more than 20 years of experience defending people accused of many types of gun charges. I will investigate your gun charges and the officers' actions when they found your weapon and arrested you. If you used your weapon in self-defense or to protect someone else from life-threatening danger, I will fight to dismiss your charges.
If I cannot dismiss your weapons charges, I will seek to reduce them, including advocating for alternative sentencing such as probation.
If you are an NRA member, you will also receive a 15% discount on your fee for any case in which a weapons offense is charged or alleged as a sentencing enhancement.
