The story below was written by David Wilson, a Stangl Law client who encountered a serious legal problem related to a firearms restriction.
This problem directly affected his employment as a truck driver responsible for hauling military equipment including ammunition and weapons. David went in search of a skilled attorney who could help appeal his conviction and protect his livelihood.
Following an appeal process, Attorney Stangl negotiated a settlement with the District Attorney, which the court approved. The domestic portion of the disorderly conduct charge was reopened, vacated and dismissed. David no longer has the conviction on his record and can now possess firearms and ammunition, allowing him to continue working in his position.
