Weapons And Self-Defense

When we say we "wrote the book on weapons and self-defense in Missouri," we mean that literally. We invite anyone interested in this topic in a general sense to acquire our book entitled Missouri Weapons and Self-Defense Law: Common Law Experience and Missouri Practice, published in 2003 or our DVD Missouri Concealed Carry and Self-Defense Law, both updated on this website. On the other hand, if you are looking for personalized legal counsel relevant to your particular concerns and circumstances, contact us and schedule a consultation.

We Offer Proactive Consultations On Weapons And Self-Defense

Many clients take advantage of our offer of a fairly priced initial consultation to review their concerns about self-defense. Quite a few have done so proactively, before any incident or brush with the law occurred. This is a wise path of preparation. Personalized knowledge of the law can go a long way in preventing the need for damage control after a legal problem has unfolded.

In our former life in the army, weapons were essential for survival. In today's modern life in and around Gladstone, Missouri, questions about the best strategies for self-protection with firearms are frequent topics of discussion. Our knowledge of the use of weapons for self-defense has historical and practical aspects. Our research on these topics to date has been extensive. Many people call us "the gunshow lawyer," but we are also knowledgeable on weapons other than guns. We are available to be your defense attorney as needed.

We Handle Tough Cases, Including Charges Of 'Felon In Possession'

In an individual criminal defense case involving weapons and self-defense, we are always ready to evaluate the facts and take a stand in support of our client's constitutional rights. We often obtain very favorable outcomes, including acquittals, on behalf of people who had been told by other lawyers their cases were "hopeless." No attorney can promise a particular outcome in a criminal case. Our clients, on the other hand, have full assurance of our preparedness for advocacy on their behalf.

Bring your questions about the use of weapons for self-defense in Missouri to my attention before any incident has taken place — or after an arrest. We welcome the opportunity to explain to you, to a judge and/or to a jury what the law really has to say about your case.
