East Lansing Michigan Firearm Attorney

Jacob A. Perrone represents Criminal Defendants in Misdemeanor and Felony cases. He has experience dealing with charges for Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Loaded Weapon in a Vehicle, Possession of Weapon with Unlawful Intent, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and Felony Firearm. He will often request in-car videos, 911 tapes, and dispatch tapes from the police department to prepare for trial. If a trial is necessary or your rights were violated in the polices attempt to gain evidence against you it is likely that a Motion to Suppress and/or Dismiss the charges will be filed If a trial is impractical based on the investigation Mr. Perrone will fight for you to get the best possible plea offer from the prosecutor and a sentence that takes into account your personal situation.
