Weapons Charges

Charged With a Weapons Violation in the Bristol County Area?

Weapons charges and firearms violations can result in serious penalties if you are convicted, and the use of a weapon can increase the penalties you face for other crimes. If you have been charged with a crime involving a weapon, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who understands the penalties you face and what is at stake for you.

I am defense attorney Kenneth van Colen of The Law Offices Burke, Espinola, & van Colen. I defend clients in Fall River, Bristol County and throughout southeastern Massachusetts against weapon and firearm-related criminal charges. Contact me to schedule a free initial consultation about your options and your defense.

Concealed Weapon, Assault, Armed Robbery and Other Charges

I have experience defending clients against all types of weapons charges, including:

  • Carrying and concealing a firearm without a license
  • Possession of a fully automatic weapon without a permit
  • Illegal possession of a firearm as a felon or if there is a restraining order against you
  • Possession of stolen guns or illegal weapons
  • Improper transport of a firearm/weapon
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Armed robbery

At every stage of your case, my goal is to protect your constitutional rights and your freedom. I will thoroughly investigate your case in order to build your defense. If evidence was illegally seized, without either a search warrant or probable cause, it may be possible to suppress the evidence against you. I will use my knowledge and skill to work for a dismissal of the charges against you or a reduction in penalties.
