Houston Weapons Charge Lawyer

Possession of Illegal Firearm Defense — Houston, Galveston, League City, Texas

If you have been charged with a gun or prohibited weapons crime in Texas, having an experienced felony defense trial lawyer to represent you and to defend your rights is a necessity you can’t afford to do without.

Attorney Tad Nelson, of Tad Nelson & Associates, has significant trial experience from his years as a criminal defense lawyer and his prior work as an assistant district attorney for Galveston County. As a result, he not only understands how to effectively defend clients facing weapons charges — he is familiar with the way many of the prosecutors in the Houston-Galveston area conduct these cases and how they prepare for the contingencies that might arise during pre-trial hearings, jury trials, and sentencing hearings.

If you are facing a serious felony charge, and need an experienced Texas trial lawyer, contact our firm.

A partial listing of different gun and weapons-related charges we handle includes:

  • Possession of prohibited weapons (brass knuckles, switchblades, etc.)
  • Felon in possession of a weapon
  • Unlawful discharge of a firearm
  • Possession of stolen or altered firearm
  • Carrying a weapon without a permit
  • Possession of a weapon in prohibited places (airports, bars, etc.)

The Weapons Enhancement

In Texas, using a weapon to commit a crime like robbery or assault, or even if you just carry a weapon on you while selling illegal drugs, can significantly increase the criminal penalties you receive if convicted. If the prosecution pushes for the weapons enhancement in your case, our firm will spare no effort or resource in challenging those attempts in court and in working behind the scenes to convince them to drop the weapons enhancement.
