Aggressive Philadelphia Attorney Handles Gun Charges

A weapons charge attorney who never backs away from a legal challenge

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ensures the right of U.S. citizens to keep and bear arms. However, it’s left up to individual states to decide their own gun control laws. Pennsylvania strictly controls the kinds of weapons you can possess, decides who can possess them, and where you can keep, carry and use firearms. Weapons charges in Pennsylvania can carry a lengthy prison sentence as well as consequences that last for a lifetime. There are a variety of Philadelphia gun crimes including:

  • Illegally possessing or selling a firearm
  • Carrying a gun without proper permits
  • Using a firearm while committing a separate crime
  • Theft of a firearm
  • Possession of illegal firearms
  • Possessing a weapon while on parole or probation
  • Possessing a concealed weapon without proper permit or license
  • Possessing a firearm with a changed serial number
  • Minor possessing a firearm
  • Felon in possession of a weapon

If you face a gun charge, you should have a criminal defense attorney who is aware of the various strategies used by state and federal governments in the prosecution of weapons charges. Our criminal defense attorney provides you with an aggressive yet compassionate defense and will fight hard for a positive outcome in your case.

Philadelphia gun charges can have serious consequences

Weapons charges are aggressively prosecuted — even more so if the accused had or used a gun to commit another crime such as robbery. Adding gun charges to another violent crime can add mandatory minimum jail time to the other penalties you might already be facing. The criminal defense team at the Law Office of David Jay Glassman ensures your case receives a full investigation. We understand that this is not just a case to you—it is your future.

Our Philadelphia criminal defense attorney is ready to step inside the courtroom and strongly advocate for your rights when you have been charged with gun crimes. In certain circumstances you may want our attorney to negotiate a plea deal that you can live with. We will make sure that your legal rights are not compromised following your arrest, and we will work tirelessly on your behalf to protect your rights.
