Gun Crimes

A gun charge conviction can limit your ability to own a firearm in the future, obtain housing, and apply for jobs. Our Arvada criminal defense attorneys handle gun charges, such as the unlawful purchase of a firearm, prohibited use of a firearm, possession of a weapon by a previous offender, and gun charges accompanying another criminal act, such as robbery. Since guns are federally regulated, you need the attorneys at Gerash Steiner Blanton, P.C., who understand the complex state and federal regulations that apply to your case.

We will thoroughly investigate your case and present the facts in your favor. Remember, just because you are charged with a crime does not mean you will be convicted, but you must take swift action and hire competent legal counsel.

Theft Crimes

Theft crimes involve unlawfully taking or using someone else’s property with no intent of returning it. Theft, also known as larceny, is a serious offense classified as either a misdemeanor or felony. The allegedly stolen object’s value determines the classification of the crime and level of punishment. From petty theft to felony larceny, we have seen it all and are prepared to pursue a powerful defense for you.

When you work with our attorneys, we make every effort to allow you to focus on your job, family, and life while we handle the legal process.

Some examples of violent crime charges that we defend our clients against are robbery, assault, battery, carjacking, murder, kidnapping, and sexual assault. Not only do these crimes carry large fines and long prison sentences, but your reputation could also suffer.
