Firearms Attorney

““What is a firearms attorney? What do they do? Doesn’t this area cover and overlap with other areas of criminal law?”

These are in fact important and critical questions. In most cases, the central and organized areas of law do a very good job of handling firearms cases. For example, a defendant who is charged with criminal recklessness for negligent discharge of a firearm may just need a skilled criminal defense counsel.

On the other hand, if a civil suit is brought, there may be competing interests, such as a defendant’s need to remain silent in the criminal suit. This may bring in the need for another lawyer, a contract lawyer, if the homeowner’s insurance, against whom a claim is made, files a declaratory judgment action to try to avoid policy coverage.

Where an Indiana firearms attorney with very detailed and broad-based firearms’ knowledge may be helpful is with determining how to manage these competing interests. In addition, there are a number of rather esoteric legal provisions and theories that may provide invaluable.

For instance, there are a number of very infrequently applied legal provisions that may be useful:

  • Landowner’s immunity for hunters.
  • Immunity for manufacturers (Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act).
  • Immunity for owner’s of firearms who are stolen and subsequently used in criminal acts.

In addition, there is no substitute for a personal and professional interaction with the individuals and businesses that ply this trade. The firearms lawyers at Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. are on the ground and actively engaged with these businesses, including representing very large gun shows.

Firearms attorney Bryan Ciyou is an active shooter and constantly participating in training programs, from tactical shooting to emergency medicine. It is these life experiences and non-legal training that rounds out this view.

Moreover, the firm frequently writes, lectures, and consults on legal matters relating to firearms, ranging from protective orders to advising government officials about application of laws and proposed legislation.

If you face unique legal matters that involve firearms with diverse legal angles, competing interests, or compounding complexity, the firearms attorneys at Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. may be the legal choice for you.
