As an experienced firearm attorney, Michael Fienman routinely handles cases where mistakes on firearm applications result in criminal accusations. For example, a man recently contacted attorney Fienman when he was charged with a third-degree felony for making a materially false written statement on a gun application. To further complicate matters, as a resident of Maryland, he was extradited to Pennsylvania and spent several days in custody for the felony falsified gun application before things were sorted out.

If not handled properly, this felony could have ended with years in custody. However, attorney Fienman negotiated for his client, and despite standing a good chance of beating the felony falsified gun application case at trial based on evidence, his client agreed to a beneficial plea to put the case to rest. In exchange for pleading to a lesser misdemeanor for making a statement under penalty, Fienman’s client would only serve six months of probation, allowing him to move past the incident easily.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
