Gun Possession Lawyers Cincinnati, OH

Representation for Individuals Facing Weapons Offenses in OH

There are a number of offenses that fall under the umbrella of “weapons crimes” in Ohio. While gun-related crimes are some of the most common weapons offenses, they are not the only ones. Prohibited weapons in the state include certain firearms, knives, and explosives, as well as silencers. Additionally, even if you legally possess a firearm, you may be charged with a weapons offense if you allegedly use that firearm in an illegal way.

Weapons crimes are taken seriously by local and state prosecutors and judges; if you have been arrested or are facing charges, it’s important that you contact a gun possession attorney Cincinnati, OH right away. L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates, LLC has been defending clients in all types of criminal defense cases throughout Southwest Ohio since 1994. We are prepared to fight for you and your rights.

Types of Weapons Offenses in Ohio

Ohio is an open-carry state, meaning you do not need a license to buy or openly carry a firearm. That being said, state law governs who may or may not own a firearm and certain weapons (as discussed above) are always prohibited. For example, those convicted of violent felonies and/or drug felonies may not possess a firearm or certain other weapons.

Our Cincinnati gun possession lawyers represents clients in a wide range of weapons-related criminal offenses, including:

  • Carrying a concealed firearm/weapon without a license
  • Unlawful possession of a firearm/weapon
  • Possessing a prohibited weapon (such as an automatic firearm, ballistic knife, grenade, etc.)
  • Selling or furnishing a firearm to a minor (under the age of 18)
  • Possessing, selling, or distributing a deadly weapon on school property
  • Possessing a firearm in a bar or another facility where alcohol is sold
  • Defacing a firearm (removing the serial number, making modifications, etc.)
  • Committing a violent crime using a firearm or another deadly weapon

Because the crimes that fall under weapons offenses range so greatly, and due to the nearly innumerable outstanding factors that may come into play, the penalties associated with weapons crimes also vary greatly. However, these are nearly always serious crimes, and a conviction could result in steep fines, jail or prison time, fees, mandatory probation, and more. You may also lose your right to own a firearm if you are convicted of a weapons offense.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "I would recommend him to anybody."

    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
