Weapons Possession

In the fight to make our communities safer, gun laws restricting the possession of weapons have been strengthened with harsher sentences and tougher enforcement for offenders. The NYPD’s controversial stop and frisk program has also contributed to the increase in gun enforcement, particularly among minorities. If you have been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, you need an experienced defense lawyer who understands your constitutional rights and the ever-changing area of search and seizure law to fight hard for you in your defense.

We have successfully litigated search and seizure issues at pre-trial hearings resulting in the suppression of illegally seized guns and dismissals of our clients’ cases without a trial based upon the violation of our clients’ constitutional rights.
