While weapons charges such as assault with a deadly weapon or armed robbery are felonies with serious penalties if convicted, misdemeanor charges such as illegal possession of a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon should be taken seriously as well. A conviction for any weapons charge can mean jail time, a heavy fine and loss of your privilege to hunt or own a firearm.

Free initial consultation about your weapons charges defense case
I am attorney John Garey. After serving as a prosecutor in Kent and Sussex counties for 15 years, I opened the Law Office of John R. Garey because I prosecuted too many good people who simply made a bad mistake.
Based on my past experience, I understand how the prosecutor will prepare the case against you in weapons charges and robbery cases. I have earned a reputation for my commitment to helping my clients protect their rights and their future.
Independent investigation is key to success
As your criminal defense lawyer, I do not rely on witness statements or evidence reports prepared by the police. Instead, I conduct a thorough independent investigation. I interview witnesses, I examine the scene of the alleged crime whenever relevant, and I order independent tests of forensic evidence if necessary.
All of these tactics are part of my aggressive approach to robbery defense and defense of other types of weapons charges:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Illegal possession of a firearm
- Possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony
- Gun possession by a convicted felon
- Criminal possession of a weapon
- Armed robbery
- Possession of a concealed weapon
- Illegal discharge of a firearm
Put time on your side, not on the side of the prosecutor
Contact me as soon as possible after being charged with weapons charges or robbery. The sooner I begin working on your case, the better my opportunity to build a strong defense and help you minimize the chance of negative consequences.
