Get A Strong Defense Against Aggravated UUW

Gun laws are complex. Many people who end up charged with a gun or weapons offense are unaware of the nuances of the law. In Chicago, and Cook County, most defendants in a weapons charge are facing aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, or aggravated UUW.

What Is Aggravated UUW?

A person commits aggravated UUW if they carry on their person or in any vehicle a loaded firearm or an unloaded firearm if the ammo is within reach. It is also aggravated UUW if the person in possession of the gun has not been issued a valid FOID card (a conceal and carry license).

Numerous such examples exist. The attorneys at The Oppenheimer Firm have over 45 years of experience handling gun and weapons charges in Chicago and Cook County. Our firm knows how to contest weapons charges, including aggravated UUW. We can explain your rights clearly and lay out your legal options.
