Weapons Offenses Lawyers

St Petersburg florida weapon violation lawyers - Fletcher & Fletcher

Weapons offense cases often mean facing the harshest penalties in Florida.

Because there is so much pressure from the public to reduce gun violence, Florida builds aggressive prosecution cases against anyone that may have been involved with a gun.

While this may seem positive for some, Fletcher & Fletcher knows it means denying too many people of second chances and handing down unreasonable punishments.

If you’ve been charged with a weapons offense, there can be some serious consequences involved. So it’s important to review your options with a knowledgeable St. Petersburg defense attorney.

Fletcher & Fletcher has worked with many clients over the years, and we have the experience and sensitivity to handle weapons offense cases.

“Mr. Rick Fletcher is one of the absolute, amazing, caring, and considerate attorneys I've ever been in contact with! He handled my case and got me what I needed. He is an outstanding person that takes his time to understand the situation that you are going through”.
