Our Goal

With ever increasing restrictions over ownership, use, and possession of firearms in California, there is a growing need to ensure that gun owners, gun range operators, federal firearms licensed dealers, and gun manufacturers comply with federal and state firearms laws and regulations. The laws and regulations are complex and require detailed knowledge of the applicable federal and state regulatory scheme. Our goal is to meet that need and help protect our client's Second Amendment right.

The lawyers at GDB's firearms law compliance and criminal defense practice have dedicated themselves to obtaining the most up-to-date and detailed information to ensure clients are protected and in full compliance with all applicable laws. We work closely with clients in all aspects of firearms law.


We work one-on-one with each client to address any firearms-related issues including civil rights violations, criminal charges, federal firearms license dealer compliance, and individual compliance.
