Gun Right Restoration

As the foremost Second Amendment attorney in Oregon my office has years of experience representing individuals in restoring their rights to hunt, target shoot, purchase, and possess firearms.

If you or a loved one have been convicted of a felony, domestic violence charge, drug crime, or restraining order, or civil commitment, you have lost your Second Amendment Rights.  We can get your rights restored. Through one of the following legal routes including:

Felony Conviction

There are generally three ways to restore your rights after a felony conviction, either through expungement (the sealing or setting aside the conviction), statutory restoration under ORS 166.274, or with a felony reduction to a misdemeanor under ORS 161.705.  Under most of these processes you will file paperwork with the the Court and you will need to demonstrate how you life has changed.  Hope is not lost no matter how bad or difficult your past may be.

Domestic Violence Conviction

A Domestic Violence conviction bars an individual from firearms under both Oregon and Federal law.   The most effective way to remove this ban is through a Motion to Set Aside under ORS 137.225.  Once sealed, the Court will remove both State and Federal prohibitions against having a firearm thereby restoring your rights.  If you cannot, or do not qualify for an expungement, a Statutory Restoration under ORS 166.274 is another alternative.

Drug Conviction

A Drug conviction or diversion (including marijuana) bars an individual from firearms under both Oregon and Federal law.   The most effective way to remove this ban is through a Motion to Set Aside under ORS 137.225.  Once sealed, the Court will remove both State and Federal prohibitions against having a firearm thereby restoring your rights.  If you cannot, or do not qualify for an expungement, a Statutory Restoration under ORS 166.274 is another alternative.

Mental Health Commitment

I have personally assisted almost every individual who has petitioned the PSRB for Relief Relief from Firearm Prohibitions Related to Mental Health in the State of Oregon.  The Psychiatric Security Review Board holds jurisdiction for anyone committed by a court to the Oregon Health Authority, or adjudicated by a court as a person with mental illness.  A mental health restoration is one of the most difficult restorations in the nation, but given the proper legal counsel and preparation it is not beyond hope.

Once your rights are restored you can shoot, hunt, and even get a concealed hand license under Oregon Law.  Our office can assist with expungements, felony reduction to misdemeanors, or restoration of rights.
