Long Island Weapons Offense Lawyer

Have you been charged with illegal possession of a weapon?

New York has some of the toughest weapons laws in the country, particularly concerning firearms. Law enforcement is determined to get illegal weapons off the streets, and to this end they are aggressive when dealing with suspected weapons offenders.

If you are fighting weapons charges in New York, our firm strongly advises that you retain our lead Long Island criminal defense lawyers. There are many legal complexities concerning the illegal possession of weapons.

Searching for a lawyer for a weapon offense charge?

Prime & O'Brien, LLP has the advantage of formerly working as Assistant District Attorneys for Nassau County. We use all of the knowledge we gained serving in that capacity to help our clients to have a powerful defense to weapons charges.

Weapons Offense Penalties in New York

Being convicted of criminal possession of a weapon can result in jail time of up to 15 years or more if there are other circumstances which compound the offense. For example, if you bring a weapon into a public place, the charges are much more severe than charges simply for having an unregistered gun in your home. Misdemeanor charges of illegal possession of certain types of knives or brass knuckles will not usually result in jail time, but they are not minor offenses.

Proving a Weapons Offense Case

Many people don't know that they are in violation of the law until charges are filed. Being in possession of a weapon does not require you to have it on your person. If you have exclusive access to a gun in your car or in your home, you can be charged with illegal possession.
