How can I get my gun back from the police?

>>>How can I get my gun back from the police?

How you get your gun back from the police will depend on whether it was seized for safety reasons, or whether it was seized because it was used in the commission of a criminal offence.

When your firearm has been seized for safety reasons, the officer who seized it must make an application to the court within 30 days for an order for the disposition of your firearm. If no application is made within 30 days, your firearm must be returned to you. If an application is made, you will have to attend the hearing and make submissions as to why you should have your firearm returned to you. At the end of the hearing, the justice that heard the application can issue an order that the firearm is returned to you, or they can make an order that the firearm is forfeited to the Crown. The justice can also make an order that you are not entitled to possess firearms or other weapons for a period of time not exceeding five years. If your gun was used in the commission of a criminal offence and there is a finding of guilt for that offence, the gun will be permanently forfeited to the Crown.

Given that you are at risk of permanently losing your firearms after they have been seized, call our office as soon as possible so that one of our defence lawyers can help you ensure that they are not permanently forfeited to the Crown. Not only will we be able to assist you with recovering your firearms from the state, but we will also be able to help you secure the best possible outcome for your criminal charges.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
