New York Defense Attorney Proudly Defending Clients in Manhattan &
The experienced New York criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Richard
Southard is devoted to protecting your rights, especially if your constitutional

- Possession of an illegal weapon
- Illegal possession of a weapon at an airport
Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, our firm can fully
investigate the claims against you and secure favorable evidence that
can help reach a satisfactory settlement or verdict. In most cases, we
are able to help our clients have charges reduced or even have cases dismissed
based on a wrongful arrest or police violation of search and seizure laws.

you were arrested for a weapons possession offense anywhere in the state
of New York, come to our firm to consult one of New York's top criminal
If you choose to forgo your right to retain legal counsel, you could be
risking some major consequences. In cases involving violence, abuse, or
your right to possess firearms can be taken away from you for a lifetime. Do not spend the rest of your years regretting
your choice in legal representation. Instead, retain a lawyer with nearly
20 years of experience.
