Experienced Defense For Felons In Possession Of Firearms
Under Florida and federal law, convicted felons are barred from possessing firearms. Florida law also bars convicted felons from owning ammunition or certain other types of weapons. Under Florida law, this is a felony charge that will bring on a three-year minimum prison sentence and up to 15 years upon conviction.

An Aggressive Defense Against Firearm Possession By A Felon Charges
The government has to prove every part of its case beyond a reasonable doubt. With our lawyers on your side, the state’s burden of proof often becomes much more difficult. Unlike some lawyers who may simply look for the best deal, at Escobar & Associates, we presume your innocence and find every possible fact that supports your defense.
Many felon in possession cases hinge on whether the defendant “possessed” the firearm in question. For instance, if you have a felony conviction and are in a home where there is a firearm present, you may be charged with felon in possession. Many times, either the defendant had no knowledge of its presence and/or the prosecution is unable to prove that knowledge. Depending on the facts of your case, you may have other defenses such as search and seizure violations. Every case is different, and every case can involve different defenses. With our team on your side, you can take comfort knowing that we will not rest until we have achieved the best possible result.
