Brooklyn Gun Crime Lawyer

If you or a loved one have been arrested for a gun crime in Brooklyn, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. Gun charges in New York are serious business and can lead to lengthy prison sentences if not handled properly. As a Brooklyn native myself, I know firsthand how aggressively these cases are prosecuted in the boroughs. But I also know the ins and outs of the New York criminal justice system and the various defenses that can be used to fight gun possession, trafficking and other firearms charges. Don’t take any chances. Call me today for dedicated, compassionate legal representation.

Types of Gun Crimes in Brooklyn

There are many different offenses that can be considered gun crimes in New York. The most common charges my clients face in Brooklyn include:

  • Criminal possession of a weapon – Possessing a gun without a valid license, even if it’s properly registered and not used unlawfully. This includes “constructive possession” where the weapon is accessible to you.
  • Criminal sale of a firearm – Selling or transferring a gun without complying with state requirements.
  • Criminal purchase of a weapon – Buying a firearm without proper licensing, even if you don’t actually possess the weapon.
  • Possession of a defaced firearm – Possessing a gun with removed or altered serial numbers.
  • Reckless endangerment – Creating a substantial risk of injury or death by displaying or firing a gun in public.
  • Aggravated assault – Assaulting someone using a firearm as a weapon.

The specific charges brought depend on the circumstances of the arrest, your criminal history, and other factors. But any gun crime accusation in Brooklyn needs an attorney who understands the complexities of these cases in the borough’s unique courts. With 15+ years representing clients on firearms charges, I know how to build a strategic defense to fight the prosecution at every step.

Penalties for Gun Crimes in Brooklyn

The potential sentences for gun violations in Brooklyn vary based on the exact charges, but can include any of the following:

  • Up to 15 years in prison for basic criminal possession of a weapon.
  • 8 to 25 years for possession of a loaded firearm outside the home or business.
  • 15 years to life for possession of a loaded firearm with intent to use unlawfully against another person.
  • 1 to 7 years for reckless endangerment involving a gun.
  • Up to 25 years for sale or transport of firearms without a license.
  • And other harsh sentences for aggravated assault, defaced weapons and other crimes.

With so much at stake, you need a lawyer who knows their way around Brooklyn courts and gun crime statutes. My firm has successfully defended clients against charges involving handguns, rifles, shotguns, assault weapons, ammo possession, and more. Don’t wait to call for help fighting the prosecution.

Defense Strategies for Brooklyn Gun Charges

As an experienced Brooklyn gun crime lawyer, I have developed numerous strategies to challenge these allegations in court. Common defenses I may use include:

  • Illegal search and seizure – If police violated your rights by stopping, questioning or searching you without justification, any evidence found may be excluded.
  • Invalid warrant – I scrutinize warrants for technical mistakes or lack of probable cause.
  • Wrongful arrest – Police often arrest the wrong person during chaotic crime scenes.
  • Possession was lawful – We can fight charges if you had a valid license, the weapon was properly registered, or other lawful excuse.
  • Duress – If you were coerced into possessing or selling a firearm against your will.
  • Entrapment – When undercover police improperly induced you to commit a gun crime you wouldn’t have otherwise.
  • Self-defense – Possessing or using a firearm to protect yourself or others from harm.

An experienced Brooklyn gun crime lawyer will thoroughly analyze the evidence and circumstances to build the strongest defense strategy for your unique case.

Why Hire a Brooklyn Gun Crime Lawyer?

Trying to handle a firearms case yourself in Brooklyn courts is extremely risky. These prosecutors handle gun cases every day and know how to secure harsh sentences, even for first-time offenders. A dedicated Brooklyn gun crime lawyer like me will protect your rights and freedom at every stage by:

  • Conducting a full independent investigation of what happened.
  • Aggressively challenging the prosecution’s evidence and witnesses.
  • Securing expert testimony to rebut the allegations.
  • Negotiating with the DA for dismissal or reduced charges.
  • Filing motions to suppress evidence due to violations of your rights.
  • Taking your case to trial for an acquittal if necessary.
  • And appealing any conviction that is obtained.

Don’t leave your future up to chance. The costs of a conviction are too steep. Call me 24/7 for skilled legal representation on your Brooklyn gun charges.

Fighting for Justice

At my firm, I take an empathetic approach and treat every client like family. I know many people charged with gun offenses have simply made a mistake, been wrongly accused, or were forced into the situation through circumstances outside their control. You deserve compassionate counsel who believes in you, not judgment or condemnation. My job is not just to analyze the legal scenario, but to listen and understand the real human impact so I can tell your story effectively in court. If you or someone you care about is facing gun charges in Brooklyn, call me now so we can start fighting for the justice you deserve.
