Should I hire an attorney to fight my gun charge?

I got caught with a 22 that was not licensed to me. It was reported stolen 3 years ago but they can't prove it was ever used in a crime. What am I facing and how can I get out of it? I have no record or felonies. Not even a speeding ticket.

    A skilled criminal defense attorney would need to discuss this matter with you in greater detail, & ask you many questions, before he/she could give you the proper legal advice (& a quote) you are seeking. Schedule a consultation ASAP. Once the case is resolved to your satisfaction, you'll be glad you paid the money to hire her/him & properly protect your legal rights.

    I am not quite sure what charges you are facing but hiring a criminal defense attorney is always a better option than going in there alone. The criminal justice system is very complex and it takes many years of experience to learn the ins and outs. A judge and prosecutor may give you some information, but ultimately only your own attorney can properly advise you and discuss the implications in your case.

    Yes you should get a lawyer. Maybe that person can work out something where you end up with no record.
