I work with clients to help them succeed, whether this involves setting up a new business, working with them to understand and comply with complicated federal and state laws, developing their estate plan and preparing the necessary documents, or helping them resolve their firearm legal issues.

I can work with you by providing the following legal services:

(1) Business Law: Work with businesses owners to plan their organization, develop the legal documents necessary to get their business started, and address their ongoing legal concerns

(2) Regulatory Compliance: Work with business owners to help them understand and comply with statutory and regulatory requirements so they can take a proactive approach to ensuring compliance and to help with issues of noncompliance

(3) Estate Planning: Work with clients to develop their overall estate plan and prepare their wills, trusts (including firearms trusts), and other estate planning documents to help them achieve their goals

(4) Firearms Law: Work with businesses and individuals to address their legal questions about compliance with firearm laws and restoring their firearms rights

My legal practice is not limited to firearm businesses and owners. However, my unique qualifications help businesses and individuals with their firearms-related, legal concerns. I have authored two volumes on firearm laws. Volume 1 explains federal firearm laws and Volume 2 explains Texas firearm laws.

Q. Can I get a concealed handgun permit in the state of texas if I was charged 3 years ago for a crime which was dismissed
A: Assuming you meet the other requirements for a Texas license to carry, your are eligible for a LTC if you 1) have not been convicted of a felony and 2) you have not, in the five years preceding the date of application, been convicted of a Class A or Class B misdemeanor or equivalent offense or of an offense under Penal Code section 42.01 (disorderly conduct), or equivalent offense. (Tex. Gov’t. Code § 411.172(a).) For a Texas LTC, the term convicted is different that that required to purchase a handgun under federal law. “'Convicted' means an adjudication of guilt or . . . an order of deferred adjudication entered against a person by a court of competent jurisdiction whether or not the imposition of the sentence is subsequently probated and the person is discharged from community supervision. The term does not include an adjudication of guilt or an order of deferred adjudication that has been subsequently: (A) expunged; (B) pardoned under the authority of a state or federal official; or (C) otherwise vacated, set aside, annulled, invalidated, voided, or sealed under any state or federal law.” (Tex. Pen. Code § 411.171(4).)
