Criminal Possession of a Weapon
We have had overwhelming success in achieving not guilty verdicts in trials for weapons possession. At Pappalardo & Pappalardo, LLP, we assist clients charged with criminal possession of a weapon, whether it be a handgun or a knife, possession with intent to use unlawfully, aggravated discharge of firearms, criminal sale of firearms, and any other crime related to firearms or other deadly weapons.
Many charges involving gun possession, or other deadly weapons offenses, arise as probation violations. Defeating the underlying weapons charge can often resolve the violation of probation as well. We have had tremendous success in Grand Jury proceedings as well.
With so many factors involved, it is important to have an experienced attorney who understands New York weapons law on your side. Whether the weapons charge is the sole charge you are facing or if it is part of a larger prosecution, we can help you find the best defensive strategy for you.
Our attorneys have successfully tried many cases, and we are not afraid to present your case to a jury. Any lawyer can instruct their client to plead guilty – we do the hard work and investigation to get the best outcome possible. We have a thorough understanding of police procedures, prosecution, and defense. In short, we understand every part of a criminal law matter. We can quickly determine if our clients’ rights have been violated. If the evidence against you was obtained through an unlawful search and seizure, we may be able to solve your legal difficulties very quickly. If a full trial is necessary, we will fight for your rights every step of the way.
