The distinctions between legal weapons and illegal weapons are not well-known by most people. As a result, individuals dealing with something as simple as a traffic stop can suddenly find themselves sitting in jail on a felony weapons charge. If you have been charged with a weapons violation, contact our firm
for a free consultation and an honest evaluation of your case. Jason Trumpler is a skilled prohibited weapons lawyer
who serves Austin
and greater Texas using his intricate knowledge of state laws.
How the weapons were obtained by police is often at the heart of these cases. The United States and Texas Constitutions both protect people from unreasonable searches and seizures. This fundamental liberty is enforced through the "Exclusionary Rule" which states that items (including weapons) found by way of an illegal search or seizure may not be used at trial against the person who suffered the illegal search or seizure. (This is often referred to as the "fruit of the poisonous tree.") If the search and seizure cannot be challenged, we thoroughly review the evidence, registration, and ownership records, and carefully examine the possibility of defending the case on questions of actual possession. Whatever the specific facts of your case are, you can count on the fact that we will thoughtfully approach your case and work as hard as we can to ensure you get a fair and just result.
Remember, Mr. Trumpler's knowledge and understanding of weapons charges comes from years of courtroom experience
as both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney
. Mr. Trumpler's courtroom skills are uniquely matched by his ability to creatively apply the law to the facts of your case. Whether it involves a knife that was too long or the sale of an automatic weapon, contact us
