Criminal Defense against Gun Charges

Salt Lake City Weapons Violations Defense Lawyer

  • If you used a weapon to commit a crime

You are now under increased scrutiny in the criminal justice system.

We Take Gun Charge Defense Seriously

Edward Montgomery was the first attorney in Utah to defend against a 924(c) charge — a gun charge stemming from a prior domestic violence conviction. These are difficult cases, even if the conviction was many years ago. We’re not afraid to tackle complex cases.

A Strategic Defense for Gun Charges

Serious criminal cases benefit from a team approach. Two attorneys will review your case separately and then together to identify strengths and weaknesses and to develop a defense strategy to achieve the best possible outcome, given the facts. That could be a dismissal of charges, pleading to lesser charges, a juvenile probation or diversion program, or an acquittal at trial.
