The law firm of Michel & Associates, P.C., is again partnering with Shooters-Edge, Inc., to put on a continuing legal education (CLE) event at the Angeles Shooting Range for California attorneys on January 20, 2013. This event will provide 5 hours of CLE credit.

The event will combine practical firearm skills and marksmanship training (an experience every attorney should have) with an overview of firearms technology, as well as training on current California and federal firearm laws. In the morning, students will be trained and will shoot pistols and an “assault weapon” on the shooting range. In the afternoon, students will be taught firearms law and technology, including a discussion of actual related firearm case precautions.

The class will be taught by Bruce Krell of Shooters-Edge, and Joseph Silvoso, an attorney with Michel & Associates, P.C.. Both have extensive experience and knowledge in firearms use and firearms law.

Mr. Krell is a court certified expert on firearms and ballistics. He is also a federal firearms licensee (FFL) and gunsmith. Mr. Krell spent four years with the United States Air Force and attained the rank of Captain. Mr. Krell was a part time civilian instructor at the Marine Sniper School at Camp Pendleton, California. He currently teaches classes in Tactical Handgun, Carbine, and Shotgun training.

Attorney Silvoso practices in firearms law and criminal defense for the law firm of Michel & Associates, P.C., in Long Beach. Mr. Silvoso has represented clients charged with firearms related crimes including, but not limited to, possession of “assault weapons,” carrying firearms concealed/loaded, brandishing, possession of illegal weapons, and prohibited persons in possession of firearms. He has counseled over a thousand individuals concerning state and federal firearms laws, and has represented firearms dealers in proceedings with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the California Department of Justice.
