Defending Gun, Firearm and Weapons Violations, Charges and Offenses in Florida:

Without question, Florida is known for some of the most severe punishments handed down to those who have been convicted of a criminal act involving the use of a gun, firearm and other weapons.

A variety of criminal offenses result in mandatory minimum sentencing when committed with guns, firearms and weapons.

All of these charges are very serious and you should not hesitate in seeking the protection of an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Why should I choose Fernandez Law Group if I am charged with a firearm or weapons violation?

If you someone you know is facing gun charges, the consequences can be very serious if there is a conviction. A highly skilled criminal defense lawyer can help defend you against these types of charges, but many lack specific experience with Florida gun crimes. There are also very few Florida criminal defense attorneys who are also qualified to practice in federal courts. And very few attorneys also have experience as former prosecutors.

At Fernandez Law Group, our team of gun lawyers work diligently at scrutinizing over every single last detail in your case in order to find any flaws or errors in the police procedure. These errors can lead to reduction in charges, fines, and sentencing. In some cases, we've even had cases that were completely dismissed. We will pay very close attention to your case and review it with you on a continual basis.

Hillsborough County Jail, Orient Road, Tampa FloridaWithout question, no matter what law firm or attorney represents you, certain violent crimes committed with a gun, firearm or weapon in Florida will lead to mandatory minimums that you will not be able to avoid. Incarceration will be served in a Florida state prison and you will be segregated with other violent and dangerous offenders.

Florida courts used to have an option where a judge could use discretion in whether or not to impose a lighter sentence. However, in order to cut down on violent crime and repeat, habitual offenders, that is no longer an option. If you are convicted on charges for a violent crime involving a firearm, it will result in a mandatory minimum sentence.

10 Year Mandatory Minimum

  • Possession of a gun, firearm or weapon in the commission of a crime (even if the weapon was not discharged)

10 Year Mandatory Minimum

  • Discharge of a gun, firearm or weapon during the commission of a crime

Life in Prison

  • When the discharge of a gun, firearm or weapon during the commission of any crime causes injury to a victim, a mandatory life sentence will be imposed.
