Weapons Charges

Weapons Lawyer-Weapons Attorney-Defending Weapons Charges and Weapons Cases

The gun laws throughout the country and in Illinois are constantly changing. A few years ago, the Federal Court of Appeals in Chicago ruled that the Illinois Unlawful Use of Weapon (UUW) statute was unconstitutional. Shortly after that, the Illinois Supreme Court agreed and struck a portion of the Illinois Unlawful Use of Weapon (UUW) law.  Immediately after that decision, legal challenges started popping up all over the State of Illinois with challenges to the Illinois gun law.  Because of the high rates of gun violence in Chicago, Illinois has some of the strictest gun laws in the country.  In response to these Court decisions, the Illinois legislature changed the gun laws and added new gun laws to deal with the Court rulings.  Illinois finally adopted a Conceal and Carry law which allows people to legally carry guns in public.  Immediately after those Court decisions, Weapons lawyer, James Dimeas, was able to bring back into court old cases of defendants that had been convicted of Class 4 UUW under the old law.  Weapons attorney, James Dimeas, was able to have many of those charges overturned and vacated.

The gun laws in Illinois are constantly changing.  If you have a Firearm Owners Identification Card (FOID) you can have a firearm in your home but you cannot carry it in public.  Recently, Illinois enacted a Conceal and Carry law.  This law allows you to carry a gun in public as long as you have a legal Conceal and Carry permit. However, if you have a gun in your vehicle or on your person and you do not have a Conceal and Carry license you can be arrested and charged with a UUW.  If you do not have a valid FOID card and you are caught with a loaded firearm in public you might not be eligible for probation.  Since the gun laws in Illinois have become complicated and continue to change, you need a lawyer who understands the current laws and keeps current with all the changing laws and the court opinions which continue to interpret these new laws.
