San Antonio Weapons Crimes Lawyer

Defense for Weapon Offenders in Texas

When facing weapons charges, understand that the charges vary in severity. Charges range from misdemeanors to felonies. If you are facing such charges, you should consider having a dedicated lawyer on your side to help you maximize your chances in court.

All types of weapons charges depend on the circumstances surrounding your specific arrest. I can thoroughly analyze the details of your arrest and help build a strong case for you.

Weapons Illegal to Possess in Texas

Even though Texas has a reputation for loose gun laws, it's still quite easy to be charged with a weapons crime if you are in possession of particularly dangerous and unnecessary weapons.

The list of prohibited weapons includes:

  • Explosives
  • Machine guns
  • Rifles with 16-inch-long barrels or smaller
  • Shotguns with 18-in-long barrels or smaller
  • Switchblade knives
  • Make-shift hand guns

Potential Charges, Penalties, and Sentences

The main concern for those facing criminal charges related to weapons possession is between misdemeanor and felony classification, as penalties for felonies are much more severe than misdemeanors. Usually, every weapon on that list, besides switchblades, constitutes a felony.

Possession of these weapons normally constitutes a third-degree felony, which yields:

  • Fines up to $4,000
  • Imprisonment from 2-10 years
  • Probation from 2-10 years

These charges increase dramatically when offended repeatedly.

  • “I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney.”
    I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.

  • “Mr. Roberto Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer!!!”
    Mr. Roberto Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer!!! I can not speak highly enough he is quick, efficient, and professional! I did everything online, through mail, and the phone. He kept in touch about every aspect of my case. After I sent documents and made a payment he approached the judge soon after and my case was closed. I am extremely pleased with his services. I highly recommend him. Now a few years later I reached out to him again regarding obtaining documents and again he is very communicative and on top of everything. I am a very satisfied customer.

  • “Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word.”
    Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word. When the prosecutor pushed back to prevent my acceptance into the PreTrial Diversions Program, Mr. Ambrosino fought back and earned my acceptance into PTD. Once I am done with PTD, he will be expunging my charge so that my record is clean for graduate school. Thank you Mr. Ambrosino.
