Indiana Gun Rights Restoration Attorneys
If your constitutional right to carry a firearm has been suspended, Chambers Law Office may be able to help restore your rights! We work with clients throughout central Indiana to restore their gun rights through the expungement process, petitions to restore firearm rights, and FBI denial appeals.
How Firearm Rights are Suspended
Under Indiana and Federal laws, if a person is convicted of a felony or a domestic related battery offense, their right to possess a firearm is suspended. Being found in possession of a firearm when you are not legally permitted is both a state crime and a federal crime.
Restoring Your Right to Possess a Firearm
Depending on your situation, there are a few ways our attorneys can help in getting your gun rights restored. Often, a client may qualify for expungement, which in many cases, can restore the right to possess a gun. In other cases, if a client has been convicted of domestic battery, a separate petition to restore rights may be required. Additionally, once a person has had their rights restored, in some cases the State Police or FBI do not update their records properly. In those cases, our attorneys can assist in the FBI appeals process to get the records corrected and cleared so a client can purchase and legally possess a firearm.
Why Hire an Attorney to Help Restore Your Gun Rights?
Being found in possession of a firearm when you are not a proper person under the law is very serious and can lead to criminal charges in state court or federal court. It’s important to go through all of the necessary steps to make sure your right is restored and the records are updated properly. This area of law is complicated and navigating the system alone, or with an inexperienced lawyer, can lead to additional problems and consequences. It’s important to have an attorney on your side that is knowledgeable about the system, the procedures, and can advocate for you throughout the process.
