    Have a fid card, but ltc was denied because of a charge over 15 years ago. Don’t believe criminal charges, just a fine and found guilty.

  2. Had my FID card taken reissued then taken again all based on phony made up charges. I refuse to give into that Luetenant at Boston PD. I had words with him and he told me then that I would not get my card back and even when it was reinstated he refused to return my weapons because the BPD Chief had taken a personal interest in my case. So even with the card reinstated he would not give me my weapons because he didn’t have to do anything.

      I apologize for the delay. Generally it is difficult to restore an LTC when the grounds for revocation are based on a clear violation of the firearms laws. It is best to contact my office regarding these matters. 617-383-4652.

    I have no gun related charges, driving after a DUI serveral times. Not once under influence since DUI. Fell asleep in a motor vehicle on a used car lot and was arrested for attempted auto theft. And I think B and E.
    This was all over 20 years ago and I was wondering if I could ever get my gun rights back. I had removed my self from Massachusetts 19 years ago and have a decent life now with my wife and son. Me and my wife operated a small business for 15 years and now I have finished A/C trade school, my A.A. degree and am starting at my B.A. in Mechanicial Engineering.
    Can you help,
    Chris Austin

We offer a case review to provide clients with an overview of their options, if any, prior to expending thousands of dollars on litigation. Please contact my office at 617-383-4652 to discuss.

      It does not appear that you qualify for an expungement- however, please contact my office to discuss a case review to see if there are any other avenues of relief for you.

  8. My Guida, I was convicted of a Domestic A&B back in 2004. No gun related charges. I now live out of state (FL) and would like to have my rights restored. Is this something worth looking into? It appears that this is something I need to pursue in MA, not FL.
