Vancouver Gun and Weapons Charges Lawyer

Carrying or using a weapon can be a criminal offence in itself or can enhance the seriousness of other charges.

If you are charged with any weapon-related crime, you should speak to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. I am Michael R. Shapray, a criminal defence lawyer with offices in Vancouver and Surrey, British Columbia. I have a long record of success defending people facing a variety of weapons charges, including:

  • Illegal possession of a firearm
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm
  • Armed robbery
  • Weapons-based probation violations

Mandatory Minimums

In many cases, gun charges carry mandatory minimum jail sentences. For example, a robbery with a deadly weapon involves a minimum four-year jail sentence.

It is much more difficult to obtain a reasonable bail or, in some cases, any bail at all, if your offence involved a gun or other weapon. Without an effective lawyer to negotiate on your behalf, you may be stuck in jail for months awaiting a trial.
