Weapons and Firearm Offenses

If you have been accused of breaking the law with a weapon, there are some special things that you will need to know in order to get through your case successfully. Hiring a criminal lawyer is the first step and Grozinger Law, P.A. can certainly help with your case. With many years of experience and plenty of knowledge of how to provide you with the best defense, Patrick Grozinger is going to be your best option in the Orlando, or Central Florida counties. Florida has special sentencing and laws that cater to those that wish to break that law with a weapon. The state does not look lightly at cases of violence if they include a weapon as well. Florida also has the “10/20/Life” law and that puts minimum sentences on cases that fall under the Weapons or Firearms category.

The 10/20/Life law is very simple and works like this; you will get 10 years if the weapon was possessed during the crime. 20 years if the firearm was discharged during the commission of the crime and 25 years to life if anyone was seriously injured or killed as a result of the firearm being discharged during the crime. The odds are good that you do not want to be included with this type of sentencing. Grozinger Law, P.A. is located in the Orlando area and the same laws would apply there.

Cases that fall into this category that are handled by the attorney include and are not limited to:

  • Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Carrying a Concealed Firearm
  • Improper Exhibition of a Firearm
  • Delinquent in Possession of a Firearm, Felon in Possession of a Firearm (3 year minimum/mandatory)
  • Aggravated Assault with a Firearm
  • Armed Burglary
  • First and Second Degree Murder, Felony Murder

All of these cases require specific knowledge of the gun laws in Orlando. Working in the State’s attorney office in Orlando has given Patrick Grozinger the knowledge and experience to help you with your case. He has a wide range of experience from traffic tickets to complex felony cases, which might be what this type of crime would fall into. Getting involved in this type of crime might not have been your first wish, but now you are hiring an attorney and might have a couple of questions. A few of the most commonly asked questioned about weapons and firearms are posted below with answers.

What is the difference between a deadly weapon and a dangerous instrument?

The difference is quite simple and will be the same in most states. A deadly weapon is one that is designed for lethal use. In this case, a firearm could be considered a deadly weapon. A dangerous instrument can be anything that can cause death depending on how it was used.

Do I need a lawyer if I am accused of a weapon or firearms crime?

The short answer is, yes. The defense that you choose is up to you, but having an experienced lawyer on your side is going to be the key to a smooth trial.

If I have been arrested with a firearm, what charges could I face?

If the firearm was not used in the crime, the case will be easy, unless you do not have a concealed carry permit for Florida. If the gun was fired during a crime, the 10/20/Life law would be in effect and could change your life forever.

If you have been arrested for a weapons or firearms offense in the State of Florida, you should look up Grozinger Law, P.A. for the most experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.

Facing charges can be an extremely stressful time in a person's life, and if you are like me, the stress can feel like the weight of the world on your shoulders. From the the first time I spoke to Patrick, he displayed an extreme amount of reassuring confidence and professionalism when it came to my case. When meeting with Patrick, he thoroughly outlined everything he was going to do for my case from start to finish while constantly reassuring me that he didn't think it would go that far. He filed very comprehensive and thorough paperwork the same day I hired him and within a few weeks was able to get my charges dropped before they were even filed. If you want to sleep at night knowing you have someone working for your best interest throughout your case, do yourself a favor and hire Patrick Grozinger.

I had used Mr Grozinger for my case. He was able to bring my case to a good ending. I found him prompt with returning calls and emails and kept me informed of the changes as they developed. He even followed up during, and even after my case was over to see how I was doing.
