Gravity/Switchblade Knives

Criminal Defense Lawyer in New York City

Law-abiding citizens who carry tools or knives are sometimes arrested for criminal possession of a weapon. In many instances, the person is arrested for carrying a gravity knife or switchblade knife that is not actually illegal. Others might not have any idea that they may be committing a technical violation of the law. Oftentimes, the items alleged to be weapons are purchased at credible retailers, including reputable chains and Internet merchants.

He has successfully negotiated dismissals with prosecutors and drafted complex motions to dismiss charges for the failure to allege a crime and for the interest of justice. Because of his reputation as a skilled trial attorney and his willingness to try a case if it is in the best interest of a client, prosecutors recognize that he will do so if necessary.
