Weapons Charges Attorney

If you or someone you love has been charged with an illegal weapons charge, contact us here at the law office of the Pittsburgh criminal attorney immediately to begin evaluating your case.

Weapons charges can be applicable in a variety of situations. You may not be licensed to carry a weapon or to conceal a weapon. Your weapons charges may stem from another arrest such as an assault or a drug offense. Weapons charges can be applied to weapons other than firearms such as knives, guns, or even cars.

Assault with a deadly weapon is any assault with any type of weapon. If you get into a bar fight and throw a barstool at someone, this act could be considered assault with a deadly weapon.

Most weapons charges however, have to do with guns and other forms of firearms.

The state of Pennsylvania considers weapons charges as enhanceable offenses, which indicates that the involvement of a weapon during a crime will automatically increase the amount of punishment you face. For example, a robbery charge will be increased to armed robbery if you used a gun or some other weapon.

The Pittsburgh criminal attorney has many years of experience representing cases of all types of weapons charges, especially gun charges. Clients should understand that a gun charge is the only excuse a prosecutor needs to charge them with a felony crime and put them in state prison.

Even if you committed a crime with a weapon, the Pittsburgh criminal attorney can still help. Contact us today for an immediate consultation.
