You’ll get an A+ Attorney with Gilbert Ambler
Mr. Ambler and Codie are amazing!! I spoke with Mr. Ambler over a year regarding restoring my rights to carry a firearm; I was quoted a price and told him I’d be calling him back. It took me over 3 years to contact him back, but he honored the original price he gave me…wow! He and Corie walked me through everything I needed to do step by step and I was granted my right to bare arms after losing them 30 years ago. I would recommend anyone to Mr. Ambler at Ambler Law Services, LLC.

Super helpful with 2A issue
Mr. Ambler and his staff understand the challenges that typical law-abiding people face each day when dealing with the unpredictable over-reach of government bureaucracy concerning our 2A gun rights. Gilbert knows the legal system well and has a lot of experience involving all types of weapons, self-defense related issues and the challenges of gun right infringement. His law firm offers an initial free consult to understand the unique aspects of your issue. Then they focus on your problem and how to most efficiently resolve it with the best outcome for you. Gilbert helped us and I highly recommend Gilbert and his team. Gilbert has your back!

Excellent 2nd Amendment Attorney!
I recently contacted Gilbert over the recent illegal ruling by the ATF regarding pistol braces. He addressed all of my concerns and enabled me to make an excellent decision to protect my firearm while keeping me out of the clutches of the ATF, all the while having peace of mind over my decision. I highly recommend Gilbert for any Second Amendment concerns. He is detail oriented, straightforward, and honest. Gilbert, you're the best.

Attorney Ambler was one of the best attorneys I have worked with. He was professional, knowledgeable, and confident throughout working on my case.

I appreciate his success with my case. I highly recommend him if you want the job done right.

Saved My Life
Choosing to work with Gilbert Ambler was literally one of the most beneficial decisions I have ever made in my life. I was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property. This charge carried up to a 10 year sentence and the outcome of this case would have a monumental impact on the rest of my life. When I spoke to Gilbert about my case, he was confident, knowledgeable, and upfront about the details of my case. From that moment on, I knew that I wanted to work with his law office. Once I became a client, I felt like a priority. His team was professional, and they kept the lines of communication open. Before my trial, they would check in with me and even offered me words of encouragement as I was looking for work in the meantime to maintain myself. Whenever I needed to speak with Gilbert, he always got back to me in a timely manor if he wasn't immediately available. I felt like I was receiving the best service possible the entire time I worked with him. He prepared me for the day of my pre-trial hearing by going over his gameplan and answering all of the questions I had. On the day of the pre-trial, I was nervous and anxious, and he remained calm and professional. He did an excellent job of explaining the facts and details I needed to make an informed decision. His calmness and confident energy definitely transferred over to me and it helped to prevent me from making a terrible decision in the end. Through his knowledge, research, and presence in the court room, he was able to convince the judge that the law was on my side in this instance and my case was dismissed. Needless to say if you have a 2nd amendment legal issue and need the absolute best defense look no further than Gilbert Ambler.

Ecstatic by the results!
I was referred to Mr. Ambler by a family friend in hopes of returning my gun rights. I felt understood and represented. I live across the country, and I was concerned about how much I could do remotely. With the assistance of Mr. Ambler and his team, they guided me through every necessary step leading up to my day in court. Excellent communication throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Gilbert Ambler to anyone seeking assistance getting their gun rights back.

Excellent Attorney
This morning my cousin had a court case in Chesterfield General District Court. He was represented by Mr. Gilbert Ambler, who was extremely professional, down to earth and explained all the pros and cons, as to what could possibly happen. He made us very comfortable, once he explained everything. I was very impressed, when he told us that he had watched the police body cams and the camera footage from the redlight. Not only did he watch the videos, but he spent 15 hours, watching the videos over and over to make sure he did not miss anything!! He was very confidant, when he was explaining what could or could not happen in court. He is very educated on the gun laws in several different states! I highly recommend him but especially with anything pertaining to a gun. We were very happy with the outcome of this case. If you have a charge or charges with anything dealing with a gun, he is the man to call on! I cannot express enough how professional and knowledgeable he is on guns. Thank you, Mr. Ambler for your professionalism, and staying up on the laws in order to help someone to the best of your ability!!

Appeal the denial of my concealed handgun permit application
Do I really need an attorney to appeal the denial of my concealed handgun permit application? It shouldn’t be that complicated. I will go in, explain to the Judge, and would be granted my privileges. But after thinking it over, I realized the judge already made at least one bad decision on my application. I didn’t have any convictions. So yes, I did need an attorney. I called LawShield and they put me in touch with Ambler Law LLC., Mr. Gilbert Ambler. He came highly recommended. Almost immediately he contacted me, we were on the same page from the beginning. I felt confidant the day of the hearing. He was efficient and got the job done. I highly recommend Ambler Law Office LLC, Mr. Gilbert Ambler for an experienced gun rights attorney. He is affordable, has a solid understanding of the specific laws governing your case. He has the courtroom experience to present testimony and evidence, make any necessary objections, navigate the procedural issues, and offer appropriate legal arguments to the judge. Your ability to carry a firearm for effective self-defense and the defense of your family is important. It is important enough to make sure you handle this the right way. It is too important to take any chances. Thank you again, Mr. Gilbert Ambler, Ambler Law Office LLC

Totally worth the money
Gilbert Ambler was recommended to me by VCDL when I asked them who they recommend using to get my gun rights restored. I talked to him and another random guy who advertises himself as a gun rights lawyer and I liked what Gil had to say a lot more. I decided to go with him, and I was not let down. He did a great job in and out of court. It went well and I now have my rights restored. I would recommend this office for sure.

Gunner Arms & Ammo
The professional and expert legal services provided by Gilbert Ambler are second to none! He was tremendously instrumental in helping Gunner Arms & Ammo obtain the FFL needed to open for business. He put in countless hours to see the process through. Gilbert is a knowledgable firearms attorney and is always available to answer our questions. His outstanding communication skills are noted when he represents US LAW Shield classes here at the store. We at Gunner Arms & Ammo are blessed by his guidance and newfound friendship.
