Defending Your Right To Bear Arms Against Many Charges
Martens Law Office, P.C., handles a broad range of gun crimes at the state and federal level including:

- Discharge of a firearm in city limits
- Carrying a concealed weapon without a license

You Need A Permit To Carry A Concealed Weapon
While you need a permit to carry a concealed weapon in Idaho, it is not always applied consistently. Oftentimes, during a DUI arrest or a drug search, a weapon sitting under the seat in a vehicle will be considered by police to be a concealed weapon. This can result in severe penalties if convicted. If this or something similar has happened to you, attorney Jared Martens has the skills to work hard on your behalf and provide sound legal advice in difficult situations.
A Gun Conviction Means Severe Penalties
If you are convicted of a gun crime, you are facing stiff penalties. For instance, felony possession of a firearm can put you in prison for up to five years. Even a misdemeanor offense such as the display of a firearm can lead to six months in jail. If you are charged at the federal level, the penalties increase even further.
