Possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony offense is punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years.
In Pennsylvania, weapons charges are treated very seriously, and carry stiff penalties of up to 10 years incarceration. Our firm has experience handling all types of weapons charges. The criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Roy Galloway, LLC will first attempt to get the weapons charges dismissed or reduced to offenses that carry reduced penalties.
Perhaps you were charged with a weapons offense after you were stopped and searched by police without a search warrant.
If so, you may be able to have the evidence suppressed if you were illegally searched or stopped by police. Our attorneys are well versed in constitutional and criminal law, and have achieved victories for numerous clients in the past by having evidence of a weapon suppressed where police violated our clients’ constitutional rights. If you are charged with a weapons crime, call the Law Office of Roy Galloway, LLC now for your free consultation.

The Plan For Weapons Charge Legal Defense
At the Law Office of Roy Galloway, LLC, we approach every weapons case with the goal of getting the charges dismissed. From the outset, we probe our clients to determine if circumstances exist where we may be able to convince a court to order that the evidence of the weapon be suppressed. In the event we are unable to have the evidence suppressed, we work strategically to develop and implement a strategy to have the weapons charge reduced to a less serious offense. It is important that you keep this in mind, if we cannot resolve your case through negotiations or convincing the court to suppress the weapon: We are not afraid to take your case to trial to achieve a favorable outcome for our clients.
