What Are Your Options?

In New York state, the stakes are high for people charged with gun violations. Depending on the charge you face, you could receive a minimum state prison sentence of three and a half years or up to 20 years for a first offense.

If you are facing gun or weapons charges, it is in your best interest to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. I can provide you with an effective defense. If you go to trial, your defense may have two components:

  • First, I can make a motion, on your behalf, to attempt to suppress illegally obtained evidence.
  • Second, I will defend you at trial.

In some cases, the only line of defense is a motion to suppress the evidence, but based on the factual circumstances of your case, other defenses may be available.
