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.
Mr. Bederow is a New York City
criminal defense attorney who, during more than 15 years of experience, has defended many
law-abiding people who have found themselves accused of a crime in the
above-described circumstances. 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.
