Weapons charges can affect convicted felons as well as people who have never been in trouble with the law previously. One of the most common offenses is carrying a weapon on your person or in your vehicle without a permit.
At Patton & Pittman in Clarksville, our criminal defense attorneys defend people who have been charged with weapons offenses in throughout Middle Tennessee, including Fort Campbell. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
In Tennessee, you do not need a permit to own a firearm. However, you do need a permit to carry a loaded weapon on your person, under your car seat, in the glove compartment or any place else where you can easily get your hands on the weapon and fire it.
Many people who face gun charges are soldiers, hunters and other law-abiding citizens who inadvertently commit a violation of the law. Weapons cases are often won on legal technicalities. For example, was the gun discovered during a traffic stop? If the search and seizure were not legal, the gun evidence may be suppressed.
Our goal in any weapons case is to attack the legal basis of your arrest and help you get your weapon back. Attorney Chris Clark brings six years of experience as an assistant district attorney and a wealth of trial experience to your defense. We take pride in defending soldiers from Fort Campbell.
