In Pennsylvania crimes involving handguns, hunting rifles, shotguns, and even assault rifles are governed by the Uniform Fireams Act. If you are charged with any Violation of the Uniform Firearm Act (VUFA) crime you must have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. Sentences for gun crimes are increasing seemingly by the day with many statutes being passed that mandate mandatory minimum prison sentences. Whether you are charged with buying a firearm illegally for another person, commonly known as a “straw purchase” or simply charged with not carrying the proper license for your firearm you can be faced with serious and life changing consequences. Protect yourself by hiring an experienced defense attorney.
Similar to crimes involving firearms, cases involving marijuana and narcotic possession or delivery can often result in lengthy mandatory minimum prison sentences. In many cases, it is the experienced trial attorney that can show that an allegation of possession with intent to deliver drugs is simply mere possession. In other cases, the skilled courtroom advocate can prove that the testimony of a narcotics officer is not supported by the other evidence. When you are charged with a drug offense and your liberty is on the line you need an experienced advocate such as this.
A conviction for a drug crime can also have serious and lasting collateral consequences. From suspension of driving privileges, to loss of government benefits or student financial aid, a conviction for a drug crime can severely affect a person’s life in many different ways. Do not let one mistake, or your addiction to a controlled substance, negatively affect the rest of your life. Protect yourself and retain an attorney experienced in these matters who will be aggressive in defending your rights.
