Protecting The Rights Of Those Charged With Gun-Related Crimes
In Ohio, you can find yourself facing felony gun crime charges without even knowing you committed a crime. People who carry concealed weapon licenses must follow strict procedures to the letter, and people with certain felony convictions on their record are not allowed to carry a firearm at all.
Whatever weapon charges you face, it is important to consult with a skilled weapons defense lawyer before making any statement to the police. At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, we can provide you with the strong defense representation you need for this serious criminal charge in Warren, Butler or Hamilton County.

Fighting Gun Crime Charges In Ohio
We defend clients against a broad range of gun and weapon charges, including:
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Illegal possession of a firearm
- Felon in possession of a firearm
- Felonious assault with a deadly weapon
- Unlawful possession of a dangerous ordnance
- Unlawful weapon transaction

Our attorneys are well-versed in effective defense strategies for weapon charges. In some cases, we can argue self-defense or that the defendant was exercising his or her rights under the Castle Doctrine. We will explore all viable defense strategies to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a gun crime conviction.
When a crime such as robbery or assault is committed while the defendant is carrying a gun, the penalties are increased significantly. Prosecutors can use weapon enhancements to compel defendants to accept an unreasonable plea bargain, but you should consult with a knowledgeable attorney before accepting any such offer. Our lawyers can help you understand your options, while fighting the weapon enhancement and underlying charge.
