New Rochelle Court
Recently, the law offices of Riebling, Proto and Sachs, successfully defended
a man charged with possessing two handguns in the City of New Rochelle,
Westchester County. After an aggressive defense the
criminal defense team at the law firm negotiated a reduction of the serious criminal charge
of criminal possession of a weapon to the non-criminal offense of disorderly
conduct. The client did not have to pay a fine and was allow to keep the
value of the handguns seized from the police. The entire case was sealed
and the client had his fingerprints and photographs returned.
To be successful in any criminal defense the top criminal defense attorneys
aggressively pursue every defense. Even when a plea bargain offer is extended
the best criminal defense attorneys always go back to the District Attorney's
Office for a further reduction or a dismissal from the Court.
