Gun rights restoration following a felony conviction in Virginia

Many people make decisions in their youth that they live to regret in the future. Unfortunately, some of these decisions carry consequences more significant than emotions. For example, those convicted of a felony in Virginia often face lifelong consequences for actions that occurred decades earlier, including a ban regarding guns. Fortunately, the law firm of Robert F. Rider, PLC can help with gun rights restoration in Virginia. 

There are many reasons why a person in Virginia might want to own a gun. These include self-defense and hunting. The inability for a person to own, buy or possess a firearm can be difficult for many.

Fortunately, there are options that could potentially lead to a restoration of gun rights; our law firm can help with every step of the process. First, it is necessary to petition the governor’s office for a restoration of civil rights, which includes the ability to vote. Once this step is successfully completed and a restoration granted, we will work with you to petition the court to restore the right to own or possess a gun. In order for the state to object to this request, representatives must provide a solid reason for doing so. 

Our law firm has helped people with the gun rights restoration process who have only one conviction that happened years before; we can also help those living out of the state restore their right to bear arms in Virginia. However, we also have experience helping those with multiple convictions. Our law office is one of the most successful in Virginia; an initial consultation could be the first step toward restoring your right to bear arms.
