11) What if I am not a good candidate to have my gun rights restored?
Not every person is in a good position to have his or her gun rights restored. If you are not in a good position, I will tell you! I advise people on a regular basis that they need to wait longer before they consider filing their petition.
For example, if you have had a felony conviction in the last two to three years, I will almost certainly tell you that it is too soon for you to file your petition. If you have had a misdemeanor conviction for possession of marijuana or DUI in the last year, I will tell you to wait longer.
We will review all the details of your situation during the initial consultation. I will tell you whether you should move forward now or later.
