Arrested for a Weapons Possession Offense?

New York Defense Attorney Proudly Defending Clients in Manhattan & Surrounding Areas

The experienced New York criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Richard Southard is devoted to protecting your rights, especially if your constitutional rights are being threatened. Because of laws and regulations that have been enacted in recent years, particularly since September 11, 2001, prosecutors and law enforcement officers will stop at nothing to ensure the safety of New York's neighborhoods.

We have successfully protected the rights of clients who were charged with serious weapons offenses, such as:

  • Possession of a weapon as a convicted felon
  • Possession of an illegal weapon
  • Illegal possession of a weapon at an airport

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, our firm can fully investigate the claims against you and secure favorable evidence that can help reach a satisfactory settlement or verdict. In most cases, we are able to help our clients have charges reduced or even have cases dismissed based on a wrongful arrest or police violation of search and seizure laws.

Protect Your Constitutional Rights

The Founding Fathers intended to grant Americans the right to own firearms through the passage of the Second Amendment to the Unites States Constitution. Unfortunately, your rights may actually be restricted by state laws in New York.

In fact, New York has some of the toughest, strictest weapons laws in the entire nation (NYS Penal Law 26.501-b). Additionally, the state also enforces some of the harshest penalties for weapons offenses in the country. If you were arrested for a weapons possession offense anywhere in the state of New York, come to our firm to consult one of New York's top criminal defense lawyers.

If you choose to forgo your right to retain legal counsel, you could be risking some major consequences. In cases involving violence, abuse, or domestic violence, your right to possess firearms can be taken away from you for a lifetime. Do not spend the rest of your years regretting your choice in legal representation. Instead, retain a lawyer with nearly 20 years of experience.
