Return of Firearms & Forfeiture Issues
There are a number of reasons that law enforcement may have to confiscate your lawfully registered firearms. Your firearms may have been confiscated due to a Welfare and Institutions Code section 5150 hold, a response to a domestic violence call or other alleged criminal conduct. In most cases, time is of the essence in seeking the return of your firearms. Contact Ahmed & Sukaram, Attorneys at Law right away so that we can help you to get your guns back.
We provide assistance to law abiding citizens in their efforts to obtain Carry Concealed Weapons (“CCW”) permits.
