Firearms suitability reviews - Early legal help can resolve them more quickly

ammunition 1Our firearms law specialist Laura Saunsbury is regularly instructed to advise firearm or shotgun certificate holders whose suitability to remain a certificate holder is being reviewed by the police. Suitability reviews are on the increase and as a result in many police force areas there is a growing backlog of such cases, leading to extended waiting times before reviews are completed. Laura Saunsbury has had considerable success in a number of recent cases in persuading the police to complete their reviews more quickly than they would otherwise have done, and also to resolve them in favour of her clients. Seeking early legal help from our expert firearms law team can sometimes avoid revocation and so result in your guns and certificates being returned far more quickly, and at far lower cost, than if you have to challenge a revocation decision by taking an appeal to the Crown Court.

In one such case recently, our client, who is a keen clay target shooter and regularly takes part in competitions, contacted us two months after the police had removed his guns and certificates. Within a fortnight of us taking on the case, Laura Saunsbury had secured their return. Our grateful client and his wife expressed their appreciation in the following terms; 

“Thank you so much for your assistance in all of this, Laura, we were very impressed with the work you put in on my behalf.  Prior to your involvement we really did think there was strong chance I would not be getting my guns or certificates back, and had it not been for you, I don’t believe  I would have got them back. Having you on board has been amazing.”
