FBI - NICS Firearm Denial Appeals ServiceYou can appeal a wrongful denial or delay of your firearm purchase.

Every year, thousands of prospective gun purchasers are erroneously delayed or outright denied the purchase of a firearm. Many times those denials are based on outdated or incomplete information maintained by the databases used by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, commonly known as NICS. Thousands more are wrongly denied every year, because NICS has misidentified them and incorrectly attributed a potentially prohibitive record to them.

Due to the complicated nature of firearm laws, it’s important to have a licensed attorney help you quickly identify the reason for your firearm denial and appeal your wrongful denial. Not only do federal laws apply to your firearm purchase, but also any applicable state laws. The experienced attorneys at Higbee & Associates are familiar with the constantly changing state and federal firearm laws, which enable us to explain the situation to the NICS Appeal Services Team in a clear and concise manner so that the matter can be resolved in your favor as soon as possible.

If your firearm transfer denial was not in error, the Law Firm of Higbee & Associates is the largest record clearing law firm in the country and can help you clear or expunge your case in order to restore your firearm rights, if applicable.

The typical NICS appeals process can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months. This lengthy time frame is because of the high number of appeal requests that NICS receives and processes. Having a licensed attorney to quickly identify the problem can help move the process along and avoid unnecessary delays; however, NICS operates on a first-come, first-served basis.

The flat fee we charge for a NICS appeal includes all costs. We will research your criminal history, request all of the necessary documents, submit the appeal, respond to written and oral responses from the NICS Appeal Services Team and provide any legal memorandum and analysis to NICS that will help to win your appeal.

During the process, you will not have to do any of the work, speak to the NICS team or appear at any hearings. We will handle all the work, while you track the progress of your appeal online through our state of the art online client portal.

Top 3 Commonly Asked Questions (View All FAQ's)

What are my chances of success?

It is nearly impossible to say what your chances of success are without first researching your background and criminal history. For a small fee, we would be glad to do a preliminary evaluation to determine what your chances are. Following that evaluation, if you wish to go forward, we will apply that fee to the total cost of the appeal service.

Do you have a money back guarantee?

No, we do not offer a money-back guarantee on our NICS appeal service. We are unable to offer such a low flat-rate price and a money-back guarantee, because the process involves a large amount of preparation, research and work done by our attorneys.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes, we can create a payment plan that fits your needs. We typically divide the cost into equal monthly payments.
