Defending Against Pennsylvania Weapons And Firearms Charges

In Pennsylvania, a firearms conviction can get you locked up for years. In many cases, illegal possession of a firearm is charged as a stand-alone crime, while in other cases, a gun charge accompanies a drug crime or a violent offense.

Regardless of what your case looks like, you need proper legal representation if you have been accused of a weapons violation. If you or a loved one is facing a gun crimes charge, our firm’s attorneys can help you determine the best course of action.

Strong, Strategic Defense Representation In Firearms Cases

At Law Offices of Kelly & Conte, we provide strong, strategic defense representation in weapons cases in state court and, in rare cases, in federal court. We can assist you if your criminal case involves:

  • Possession of a firearm without a license, which is a third-degree felony
  • A crime involving a loaded gun — a crime has a higher grading if there is a bullet in the chamber of a confiscated weapon
  • A charge related to a crime of violence such as robbery
  • An assault involving the presence of a gun or a shooting, which can bring a five- to 10-year sentence
  • Possession of a gun during a drug transaction

In many cases, a successful defense will involve arguing that a search and seizure of a gun was illegal.

Every case is different. Make sure you have the help of a lawyer if you or a family member has been charged.
