Because of what is at stake in a firearms offense case, it is critical to have aggressive representation – the kind that produces results. At Monzón, Guerra & Chipman in Lincoln, Nebraska, our aim is to use our extensive trial experience to get you the results you deserve. While we can never promise a particular result, we can set realistic expectations and will strive to exceed them.

- Possession of a destructive device
What Is At stake?
Given continued media attention on serious crimes involving firearms in our nation, it is no wonder that the laws about possession and use of firearms are stringent. Rely on the experience of our attorneys to help minimize the impact of a criminal charge involving firearms. In a community known for its many hunters and sportsmen, firearms are numerous and charges are all too familiar. Work with our Lincoln criminal defense attorneys if you are accused of a violation of state or federal firearms laws.
Under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA), people who are habitual felons, or those who repeatedly commit violent crimes, may face a mandatory statutory sentence of 15 years in prison for felony possession of a firearm. Carlos A. Monzón has the experience to handle complex and dangerous firearms cases.
