I have a friend who needs to get a pardon in Maryland for a misdemeanor charge from 20 years ago. The charge was a misdemeanor, but it was punishable by up to 3 years in prison (Yes, there are misdemeanors in some states that are punishable by over 1 year in prison). He didn't get any jail time, but the possibility of punishment of over 2 years makes him a prohibited person. He's pursued expungement in Maryland to no avail. Now he is seeking a governor's pardon in Maryland. Does anybody know of any attorneys in Maryland who are gun-friendly and experienced in seeking pardons?

Thanks in advance for your help. This guy is very passionate about firearms and being a prohibited person is killing his soul.

I have a friend in the same situation. The pardon application is online. It is long. Not sure you need an attorney. My friend hasnt done the app yet, but i told him now is probably the best time. Repub govs in md arent that common (if it even matters).

I dont know how Hogan's office will handle pardons, but im told that under previous administrations, pardons were granted with the disclaimer that the pardon did not apply to gun rights.
