Pennsylvania Weapons Charges Defense Lawyer

Felony Gun Arrest? Former Federal Agent for the ATF.

At PennLaw, we know what we are doing when it comes to criminal defense for federal or state weapons charges. In fact, we are the only law firm that can say we have the direct, hands-on experience that makes a decisive difference.

Criminal defense trial lawyer Stephen M. Misko has spent an entire career in law enforcement and criminal law. After working for several years as a police officer, Mr. Misko served the federal government as an investigator for the ATF, where he was assigned to investigate federal crimes relating to weapons, arson and explosive materials.

He used that experience to become an effective prosecutor in Pittsburgh, before opening PennLaw. Today, our firm is recognized as one of the leading criminal defense law firms representing people charged with federal weapons charges in state and federal courts.

It Isn't Only About Guilt or Innocence

Effective representation in federal court requires proving that the weapon wasn't involved in the crime or possessed by you or qualified as a Title II weapon. It means divesting you from the actual weapon. It also means knowing the federal sentencing guidelines and working hard to ensure the charges and potential penalty fits the actual offense.

"As a former ATF investigator and prosecutor, I know how prosecutors prepare their cases, and I know how to fight to help you get the best possible outcome." - Attorney Stephen Misko
