Firearm Charges in Florida

Under Florida law, most firearm crimes are felonies. Often, a firearm charge is associated with another criminal charge, such as aggravated assault, aggravated battery, robbery, murder, or other charges.

We represent clients charged with firearm crimes, such as:

  • Unlawful possession of a firearm
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Unlawful purchase or sale of firearms
  • Possession of an illegal weapon
  • Possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Unlawful discharge of a firearm

    Florida has mandatory minimum sentences under the state’s 10-20-Life law. If a firearm is brandished during the commission of a crime, the defendant may face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. When the firearm is discharged in the commission of a crime, the defendant may face a mandatory 20 years in prison. If the gun injures or kills someone, a conviction can result in a sentence of 25 years to life.
