TSA NOV DefenseAccidental TSA gun and prohibited item penalty reduction assistance
Welcome to TSANOVDefense.com
Since you are visiting this site, chances are real good that you were going through a TSA passenger security screening checkpoint and were found in possession of a firearm or other prohibited item
you have either received a Notice of Violation (NOV) from the Transportation Security Administration or were told by the TSA screeners to expect a NOV in the mail.
So you now have a lot of questions, such as:
Am I still allowed to fly?
Am I now on some sort of government watch list?
How does this affect my TSA PreCheck status?
What happens if I pay the 50% proposed penalty just to get this over with?
Is it possible to get the proposed settlement amount reduced by even more than 50%?
I received a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty (NPCP) or a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) — What should I do?
Is this going to be on my record?
Someone took my gun. Can I get it back?
In the NOV paperwork you have received (or will receive), TSA provides you with several options. TSA naturally prefers that you pay one-half of the proposed civil penalty within 30 days to settle the case; it is the easiest solution - for TSA. If you were found with a loaded firearm, that means that the amount that TSA wants is $1,500.
Our strongest recommendation is that you do not pay any money until you talk with TSA NOV Defense. We will be happy to provide you with a free consultation to explain the NOV process and discuss what option would be best for you.
If after the free consultation you decide to retain TSA NOV Defense, our fee for representing you in NOV cases involving firearms is $350. For NOVs not involving firearms, our fee is $250.
As the initial consultation is free, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment or call us at 202-241-9282. If you decide to retain TSA NOV Defense, payment can be made by PayPal.
