Jacksonville Gun Crimes Attorney

You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Gun crimes carry serious penalties that can put your freedom at risk, including minimum mandatory prison time. As a seasoned Jacksonville gun crimes attorney, I have helped countless local residents in situations similar to yours over the years. As a member of the USCCA (US Concealed Carry Ass’n.) rapid response attorney program, I take calls at any time from a USCCA member in the middle of a gun incident and give immediate advice and USCCA pays the bill. I am intimately familiar with the interplay between your 2nd Amendment Constitutional rights and Florida's gun laws. I fight for the rights of my clients in Jacksonville, Duval County, and St. Johns County.

Don't find yourself contesting a gun crime charge on your own, contact me today at (904) 289-5577.

The Right to Bear Arms

The U.S. Constitution gives you the right to bear arms; however, sometimes this right is in danger of being stripped from you. Florida residents have had their weapons confiscated from them for a variety of reasons, such as when transporting their firearm. Florida law allows residents to carry a firearm securely encased in their vehicle for transport, however, many times police officers misinterpret the law and charge the individual with a gun crime. As a law-abiding citizen, you are granted the right to possess a legal firearm, and I am dedicated to protecting your right.

Common gun charges in Florida include:

  • Improper exhibition of firearm
  • Carrying a concealed gun without a license
  • Discharging or possessing a firearm in a school
  • Giving a minor (16 and younger) access to a firearm
  • Gun possession as a convicted felon

Understanding 10-20-Life

Florida Statute 775.087, also known as the 10-20-Life Law, is a sentencing law for gun crimes. Simplified, it states that if you pull out a gun under certain circumstances you are given a minimum jail sentence of 10 years. If you fire a weapon, you are given a 20-year jail sentence. And, if you fire your weapon at somebody, you can be given a jail sentence of 25 years to life. Due to the severe jail sentences associated with gun crimes in Jacksonville, it is highly recommended that you seek legal services immediately.

Mr. Anthony not only showed me compassion, but he proved that not all attorneys are about the money. His ingenuity and spunk made me feel that my son wasn't another statistic. I was treated like family and for that I will ever be grateful. If your looking for a stellar team and an amazing attorney, look no further than Malcolm Anthony.”
