I am a “planning” attorney, working with clients to help keep them out of legal entanglements and litigation. My goal is to work with my clients to help them succeed in their goals, whether this involves setting up a new business; working with them to understand and work within the requirements of complicated federal and state laws; or preparing their wills, trusts (including gun trusts), and other estate planning documents.

I can work with you to:

1) Prepare the necessary documents to get your business started
2) Understand the legal requirements for your business so you can take a proactive approach to
ensuring compliance
3) Prepare or revise your wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents
4) Address your legal questions and needs as they involve firearm laws

While my practice is not limited to firearm businesses and those owning firearms, my unique qualifications help businesses and individuals with their firearm-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).)
