The article provides valuable insights into the intricacies of such cases and demonstrates the skill and dedication of the legal team at Lebedin Kofman.

In the article, Kofman, a well-respected New York criminal defense lawyer, explains the situation faced by their client, a jeweler from Baltimore who was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. The client legally owned a gun in his home state but faced severe legal consequences for carrying it in New York City without a permit.

“Criminal possession of a weapon is a serious offense in New York City, classified as a violent felony offense,” New York criminal defense Russ Kofman states. “The punishment if convicted for this offense must be incarceration for a period of 3.5 to 15 years and post-release supervision for a term up to five years.” Given the gravity of the charges, the client required experienced legal representation to navigate the complexities of the case.

The team of New York criminal defense lawyers at Lebedin Kofman successfully resolved the case within two months, getting all felony and misdemeanor charges dismissed. The client’s case was ultimately resolved with a disorderly conduct charge.

Kofman emphasizes that this is not the case and that the firm has consistently and successfully represented individuals in these situations, achieving excellent results, including no jail time and no criminal record. Drawing upon their experience and dedication, Lebedin Kofman’s legal team provides effective legal representation for clients facing similar challenges.
