Federal Weapons Offense Lawyer

NYC Federal Weapons Offenses

Weapons or firearms crimes that occur on federal property or involve weapons being transported across state lines can be prosecuted under federal law. These cases are especially serious because the penalties are frequently much more severe than state charges, often involving lengthier prison sentences and stiffer fines.

Furthermore, the prosecutors in federal weapons or firearms cases often have much greater resources because of the support of large agencies. This typically means that the accused will have to overcome a large amount of evidence and a staggering conviction rate that regularly exceeds 90 percent.

Mehdi never doubted me, and was so personable to work with. He was consistently available to answer my questions, and felt more like a friend than a lawyer. He was extremely thorough, and was able to get my case dismissed. I highly recommend this firm.

They really help me a lot especially Attorney Mehdi Essmidi.... he answered all my questions, informed me all the details that i need to know, encouraged and understand me, and believes me. I had a lawyer before who gave up on me and wanted me to plead guilty on this case. I thank God, He, let me found this law firm and hired them. Now, my case got dismissed!!! ... i could not ask any result better than that. If anybody needs a lawyer, i suggest, do not hesitate to hire them, it is worth every penny.

From the first moment that Jeff answered my call very early on a Monday morning, I knew that I had found the best attorneys for my son. He helped calm my fears and Medhi called me just about every hour to give me updates on the progress of getting my son out of jail. Both Mehdi & Jeff answered calls and texts on weekends, at nights, during holidays. Mehdi worked tirelessly to get the best possible outcome for my son. He patiently answered any questions I had. I'm grateful beyond words that he basically saved my son's future.

From the first consult with Mehdi Essmidi I was put at ease about my situation. Mehdi was confident and professional. He was always easy to reach and explained every step of the process clearly. At the end of several months even the judge said what Mehdi did for me was remarkable, but Mehdi said he would’ve kept fighting it if it wasn’t for my time constraints with work. I place my whole confidence in Mehdi and Greco Neyland, PC and would recommend them every single time.

Can't recommend this group highly enough. Jeff was fast, professional, and knowledgeable when responding to my inquiry while I was in an extremely difficult situation. I was working with Mehdi who couldn't have been more caring and clear. He consistently made sure I was understanding each part of the process and that I was comfortable with the actions we were taking. Mehdi went above and beyond for me and because of that I got the outcome I was hoping for. Mehdi even took the time to update my family so they could understand the process as well. I can't thank them enough for how much they helped me through one of the most stressful incidents in my life.

I was struggling to find an attorney that could match my needs and I stumbled on Mehdi through the web the week of my court appearance. He got 3 counts of misdemeanors down to just a day of community service and with a 6month period of good behavior to have it sealed away completely as this was my biggest fear of having a record for 1 bad drunk night out. Very down-to-earth guy easy to communicate , and overall a smooth attorney to work with helped made the process easy to understand. I'm still surprised at how he pretty much only had a day to prepare but nailed it in courtroom to have my case pretty much dismissed. A1 attorney ,effecient, and just overall pleasant experience . Highly recommend!!!! Best of luck Mehdi thanks again.

It is not until one is faced with a legal matter that one realizes that our legal system is far from perfect, and that innocence does not necessarily exempt you from legal jeopardy. Once caught in a legal matter, there is an emotional and stressful toll to pay which derives from the uncertainty of the unknown. I am very pleased and grateful that I was able to retain Brian’s services to attend to a most unpleasant experience. Throughout the duration, Brian was supportive and understanding. He explained legal lingo in terms that I could understand and often forwarded links to source where I could further understand the matters at hand. Brian displayed a commanding knowledge of his field while exercising caution in offering advice out of his area of expertise. While it is apparent that Brian is adroit in the courtroom, I was able to ascertain that he is a warm and caring professional. As my case developed and eventually unfolded into a very successful resolution, I was very happy and grateful that I had Brian Valerio in my corner.

I hired Jeff Greco and his colleague Brian Valerio to represent me in a dubious disorderly conduct charge, and I can say with full certainty that if you are in a similar position, they are the guys for you. From beginning to end, they were by far the most professional team I consulted, and as a result they were the ones I chose to represent me in court. At the hearing, the judge initially handed out an ACD, but Brian Valerio cleverly argued against the ruling and got the case completely dismissed within a few minutes. Greco Neyland is on the more expensive side, but if you have the means to bring these guys on board, they are worth the investment. This is your future, after all!

Choosing Brian was THE BEST decision we ever made.

We could never asked for a better result! Brian has a strong personality in court, and we have complete faith that he would do his best to fight for us. To those who are looking for an attorney --- Brian Valerio is the guy!

The first day I walked into his office and talked with him and his associate Brian Valerio to explain my case. Their level of attention to work and get the best results in my case was beyond my expectations. Both, Jeff and Brian, would provide me with answers every time I had a question regarding my case, without a doubt, they were always available to provide me the best service. Jeff and Brian managed to minimize my charges. To this day, I am very thankful I selected the right team to solve my case. Best attorneys you can have on your side. -Christian S

Jeffrey Greco is a friend in need! My best friend acquainted this firm with me and I am extremely grateful for having them to assist us with my case. It happened a few months ago, I got a speeding ticket going 90 mph in a 50 zone and caught driving under the influence of liquor. Within only two or three weeks working with this firm, my case was diminished to a negligible fine with 30 day community service. They were exceptionally expert and they made the whole procedure simple and stressful. I exceedingly recommend this firm!

I contacted this firm and they were able to respond immediately. Set an appointment with them for consultation and came the next two days. As I arrived, the staffs greeted with smiles on their faces and assisted us quickly. Explained to them about my situation, submitted my ticket and paid a small fee. They made the whole process very easy and quick. My case was dismissed after a couple of weeks. Thank you guys! Really appreciate everything!

I didn’t have a big case or major situation for Jeff to handle, but many questions about a small criminal matter. He took the time to speak with me over the phone and even meet in person to help with my situation. Eventually he helped to convince the ADA to throw out the charges. Thanks Jeff for taking on something much smaller than your normal cases - and thanks for making me feel just as important as your big case clients.

He provided legal advice that was easy to understand and straightforward. Throughout my entire case he never left me out in the dark and constantly provided updates on my case. I’d give Mr. Greco my highest recommendation as NYC defense lawyer.

I hired Jeff Greco during one of the most difficult times of my life. The nightmare started when I was arrested on drug charges in NYC. I had nowhere to turn for help but prosecutors offered a deal and my attorney at the time was pushing to end the case and take the deal. I started calling lawyers all over New York City, but talking with Mr. Greco on the phone was the first time I felt really comfortable. Hiring Jeff Greco, was a great decision and I likely wouldn’t have received the good outcome in my case without him.

Really liked that Jeff Greco offered me a free consultation. It started out my whole case with them in the right way. While I was very worried about the drug charges, I didn’t worry about my lawyers. Jeff was there for me every step of the way. I had an A-1 felony drug case, and he got it reduced. I’m on probation but I’m not going to prison like I almost did before I hired him.

I had a lot of cost concerns hiring a private defense attorney. I worried about taking a part-time job to cover the expenses and dreaded that first bill for my defense, but with Jeff Greco I didn’t need to worry. The lawyers I worked with were constantly aware of my cost limitations and keeping the expenses as reasonable as possible, He is not cheap...but he made it work for us in our situation. Plus, everyone I spoke to in the office was willing to answer my questions or send an email. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer during a difficult time in my life.

Jeff Greco is a NYC lawyer that understands the importance of communication and a fast response. As a client, the last thing I want is to spend days or a week waiting to hear from my lawyer. Jeff Greco called me immediately and gave me his cell phone. He took my calls when I needed to be calmed down or if I had pressing questions.  All of my questions were answered and I never felt forgotten or neglected. I knew Jeff was on top of my defense at all times!

Top notch lawyer! The reviews for Jeff Greco said 5 stars and a 10.0 - I know why now. I hired Jeff to go to trial on a DWI and drug case b/c my other lawyer didn’t think I should go to trial. When I hired Jeff the first thing he said when I told him I wanted to go to trial was - “Great. When is the trial date?  Let’s do this.” He was actually glad to see I was willing to fight the charges. I am a med student so this was critical for me to be exonerated. Jeff went to trial and destroyed the arresting officer on cross examination. The jury deliberated 9 minutes and found me not guilty of BOTH the DWI & the drug case. I never doubted Jeff Greco’s commitment to my case or his willingness to fight for a good outcome - this verdict just proved I was right.

From the start, my experience with Jeff was professional, but personal. In handling my federal criminal case, Jeff used discretion and took confidentiality seriously. It really built trust in a complicated legal situation. It was the scariest time of my life, and Jeff was able to keep me out of prison. I owe him more than words can describe!

At first I thought my arrest for DWI wasn’t a big deal, but my DWI case escalated because of separate charges for reckless driving and refusing a breathalyzer test. Just before my court hearing, I knew I needed an attorney – fast! Jeff Greco was quick to help explain the DWI process, put together a defense, and explain everything along the way.

When I was charged with a federal case - I thought the world was slipping away. I was referred to Greco Neyland by a friend and was cautiously guided through my case and what to expect. Jeff was calm throughout and this went a long way.

The best of the best!!!! I had bad blood with neighbors that lasted many years, which led to me being accused of vandalizing their car. I have no criminal history at all by the way. i found out that i had to turn myself in, so before i did i called up Jeff Greco late at night. he returned my phone call early the next morning and had a meeting. He got in touch with the detective and got me a DAT. I didn't have to step one foot in a jail cell for something i never did. throughout the course of the case his team was excellent. i couldn't of asked for anything more . During the case i was being accused again of vandalizing their car on two other occasions, which led to more adjournments. Anytime i was worried about something that had to do with the case, Jeff was there, he was straight didn't sugar coat anything and was persistent. I finally got an ACD pretty quickly considering the false accusations and I owe it all to Greco and his team of amazing lawyers. He made me feel protected and well defended during a not so wonderful time in my life.

I'm just going to start this review by saying Jeff Greco is amazing attorney. I have absolutely no complaints about the service he provided me. He was knowledgeable, available at all times and very understanding. I can tell Jeff Greco actually cared about me and the situation I was going through. He seemed well connected and respected in the court system community and got my case dropped from a DWI charge to a violation very swiftly. I was going through financial problems, he not once pressured me about payments. Again not only is he an Amazing attorney but also an AMAZING human being. I would recondmend Mr. Jeff Greco to anyone! -Anthony Vargas

I was facing 20 years to life for a federal conspiracy case. Jeff push for a speedy trail the goverment came down to ten years it being is one time deal offer then came down to three years and finally a week before trial try to change my trial date. Jeff wrote a letter apposing this adjourment which the judge apposed. Two weeks later jeff walk me out from jail with time served. Till this day i can text him and he will answer me jeff is like a friend that i owe my life to. From my experience being in federal jail most attorney wont fight for you because the federal govement is unbeatable the only thing he ask for was for the truth which i did tell him and he took it from there . Thank you jeff

first offense for me and i was super nervous. i called multiple attorneys and the first thing they would ask was if you knew my fee. From the moment i spoke to Jeff Greco he made me feel like we were friends and I made a mistake and not to worry he has my back. Jeff was available at all times and when ever I texted he was prompt, no matter how many questions I had, which happened to be a lot. He got my case dismissed and made sure I was comfortable the whole time I time he was defending me. I would definitely recommend Jeffrey Greco.

2 years ago I was charged with a crime "cash smuggling " I made the mistake of not reporting the amount of cash I was taking out of the USA . Prior to that I've never committed a crime , not even a traffic ticket on my record. So you can imagine what I felt that day that I was arrested. I've never been in a trial before , I didn't know who to call, I didn't know any lawyers in this type of case. Thank God my sister in law worked in a attorneys office so she ask her boss (attorney) if she knew somebody GOOD In this type of cases. Her boss automatically said he needs somebody with power and with a good record -MR. Jeffery L. Greco (Jeff) . Having Jeff by my side was the Best decision I've made in my life. The level of professionalism and caring of this man is Amazing . I've always heard that lawyers are just interesting in the money , it wasn't the case with "Jeff " he wanted me free, he wanted me to keep my job and enjoyed the freedom with my family . He kept money to the side , he worked with me, with my situation , and he was never intimidated by the Judge. I can not stress enough how he treated me through out the entire case, so much respect . I don't know much lawyers, but He is the one you want to defend you. I didn't step a foot in jail, i was able to keep my job, and now I'm enjoying freedom. Jeff and I still text each other here and there , is like we're family , i consider him my friend. I owed my life to this man, best attorney ever. Jose L Cabrera .

I never thought I would be so comfortable going to court. I was facing serious charges but JEFF and his team came through for me. The office is beautiful. From the consultation I felt secure that this was the firm I could rely on. Always available to answer my questions, always on time to court, and charismatic. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a great attorney.

Jeff Greco & Associates, I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication to my case. It was an immensely rigorous and emotionally investing process, with your competence and proficiency awarding me with the opportunity to raise my son. The charges and accusations were of serious federal matter, with me looking to serve years in prison. Your knowledge and defense skill set were able to negotiate a much more feasible sentence, benefiting both myself and my son. You were able to convince the judge to sentence me to time served and I was released from custody. I'm so grateful to all your assistance on my matter as I was looking to 5 to 40 years in prison. We are remarkably appreciative for your adherence to my case, and I thank you for remaining prompt and focused, while considering the implications of this trial on my son.I write you this from the comfort of my own home, knowing that my son will now have his mother actively involved in his life. You have successfully removed the stress from my life and restored the family dynamic which was of top priority. Your ambition, determination, and competence surpassed all expectations and offered me a deal that would not have been achievable without your guidance and commitment.With deep appreciation and many thanks.Sincerely,JoJo :))))))
