Court overturns chief’s decision on appeal
This was a great victory as it took almost a year to achieve. Client had an assault incident as a juvenile. As a result, his local police chief denied his gun permit application. Then he hired me. While my client was still young, it was several years after the incident and the victim did not oppose his gun permit. Nevertheless, the State did. The court permitted me to put the case on hold while I get some more evidence to support my case. About six months later the case returned to court. This time, I was armed with more evidence on my side. The State still refused to consent to the application. However, the Court sided with me and the client was granted his appeal.
