Aggressive Advocacy on Your Side in Cases Involving Federal Gun Crimes

Gun cases have undergone heavy exposure in recent years. Fear of terrorism, as well as fear of random shootings, has brought the attention of national media to gun policy and weapons offenses. As a result, federal prosecutors have increased the intensity and frequency of firearms investigations.

Attorney J. Rodney Messina has years of experience defending the rights of clients in high profile cases. We stand by our clients and fight to protect their freedom.

We provide effective defense of federal drug crimes involving:

  • Concealed weapons
  • Using a loaded weapon in the commission of a crime (armed robbery, assault, etc.)
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Illegal distribution of a firearm
  • Possession or sale of machine guns or semiautomatic guns
  • Other federal gun crimes

In cases of aggravated assault, sexual assault, homicide, and many other offenses, the use of a weapon in the commission of the crime can result not only in weapons charges being added but also in enhanced penalties for the underlying crime. Therefore, it is essential to take the gun charges seriously.

We have the experience, resources and commitment to defend federal gun cases where there is abundant media exposure or other issues. J. Rodney Messina uses his experience to thoroughly investigate the case. For example, he will determine if there were civil rights violations such as an illegal search and seizure which require illegally obtained evidence be dismissed from the record. Without that evidence, charges are often dramatically reduced.
