Legal Question in Criminal Law in New York

My brother got arrested for possession of a stolen handgun, marijuana and possession of a weapon by a former felon. Is it worth it to obtain a lawyer? I'm sure he'll have to do jail time but I don't have the funds for a more professional attorney.

A gun charge is a serious charge. He needs a really good lawyer. It sounds like this is a federal court case, which makes it even worse.

I handle these cases.

I concur a competent criminal defense attorney will be very much worth the cost. It may help his possible defenses or at least help in plea negotiations. You may contact my office@ 7188340087 for a phone consultation.
