Firearm laws in Ohio strictly govern the use, sale, distribution, importation and transportation of weapons and closely regulate citizens’ rights to own and carry. Because firearm laws change so frequently, both confusion and unnecessary arrests have increased exponentially.
At Synenberg & Associates, our team of attorneys, led by former Assistant United States Attorney Roger Synenberg, has defended numerous clients facing gun charges at all stages of the legal process from negotiations with the Government, to trial and appeal.
The Fourth Amendment protects people from unlawful searches and seizures, while the Second Amendment safeguards people’s right to keep and bear arms. A successful defense of firearm violations charges may involve a violation of one or both of these constitutional protections.
If you have been accused of distributing weapons, we will question the law enforcement tactics used to gather evidence. If you have been accused of transporting firearms and your firearms have been confiscated, we can question the legality of the seizure. In addition, if you have been accused of a concealed weapon violation, we will question the legality of limiting your right to bear arms.
