Chicago Gun Attorney Purav Bhatt Is Serving The Greater Chicago Area

Purav Bhatt, a criminal defense attorney serving the Greater Chicago area, is handling cases from diverse areas of criminal law such as burglary, criminal sexual assault, domestic violence, federal charges, DUI/drunk driving, felony, financial crimes, robbery, theft crimes, and weapons charges. He is offering his services to anyone searching online for “Gun Attorney Chicago.”

According to a survey by Pew and Harvard and Northeastern, about 40% of Americans say they or someone in their household owns a gun and 22% of Americans say they own a gun. The Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey estimates that American civilians own 393 million guns which makes it the number one country in terms of gun ownership per capita. It is no wonder that the law offices of Purav Bhatt claim that they have defended many citizens who were stuck in a position where they had to explain their possession of a firearm. Purav Bhatt cites examples of people from all walks of life such as off-duty security guards, housewives on shopping trips, convicted felons, hunters, out of state visitors who are legally allowed to carry firearms in their own states, antique gun collectors, military servicemen, fans of shooting and firearms, and competitive sharpshooters.

There are serious consequences for a gun charge that can include prison terms, high fines, and loss of firearm ownership. This can apply to those who are arrested or charged with being in possession of a firearm or ammunition without a license, carrying a concealed weapon without a conceal and carry permit, or charged with a firearm-related offense in the state of Illinois. The laws are especially strict in Illinois as Chicago is notorious for instances of gun violence and the proximity of the state to Indiana where it is easy to obtain a weapon and carry it across state lines.

There are a few quirks about the way that weapons-related charges are handled in Chicago that makes having well informed, experienced, and knowledgeable legal representation very important to beat a gun charge. For example, there are specific requirements as to how firearms can be transported even if the carrier is legally allowed to carry a firearm. Illinois law also does not distinguish between the possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition. The penalties are the same for both. Purav Bhatt says that to protect one’s legal freedom and constitutional rights, experienced legal counsel is very important.

When asked about his experience, Purav Bhatt says, “I have been representing and obtaining acquittals, dismissals, and reduction in punishment for my clients for a decade. As someone who has first-hand experience in litigation surrounding weapons charges in a state that is infamous for its gun violence, I have seen it all and handled it all for my clients. My knowledge of Illinois firearm laws gives me a leg up over other defense attorneys. When you are facing a long prison sentence, you need someone who is sharp and well adapted to the legal system’s nuances. My years of experience as a criminal defense attorney handling firearms and gun charges in Chicago and the federal court ensures that you have the best possible legal representation on your side.”
