A Montgomery County Defense Lawyer and Former Tennessee County Prosecutor: Defending Against Felony Gun Charges

Ed DeWerff, the founder of the Law Office of Edward E. DeWerff, is a former prosecutor for the Montgomery County and Robertson County district attorney's office. That experience gave him hands-on experience and an in-depth look into not only how criminal cases are handled, but also police investigation processes and courtroom procedures.

Mere possession of a weapon is not illegal unless you are a felon or have been convicted of domestic assault. In addition, possessing a weapon is not the same as carrying a gun on your person. It may be on the floorboard of a car you are traveling in with friends. If discovered by a police officer and no one claims ownership, all occupants may be arrested on illegal weapons charges. The arrest, however, does not mean a conviction is automatic.

A Focus on Aggressive, Fact-Based Criminal Defense

Whether you or a group with you is arrested on an illegal weapons charge, the state has to prove intent to use it for a crime or intent to be "armed.". Our job is to hold the state responsible for proving your intentions. The police officer may claim you were going to commit a crime when you were actually taking the gun in for repairs.
