Firearms are the only items that are readily accessible in the vast majority of states yet are highly controlled in a few States mostly limited to the Coasts. In addition, Firearms are the only items listed in the Constitution that one has a Constitutional right to possess. However, misuse of firearms or the possession or sale of the wrong types of firearms can have life changing consequences on the owner, possessor or seller of the firearm. New York has a very complex statutory scheme regulating the possession and sale of firearms and regulating the types of firearms that may be possessed. This CLE course is designed to give the practitioner insights into representing and advising clients on New York gun laws.

Mr. Tilem’s legal career started in September of 1991 as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney’s Office in Manhattan where he was assigned by District Attorney Robert Morgenthau to the prosecution and investigation of hundreds if not thousands of criminal cases, including crimes of violence, white-collar crimes and homicides. Many of Mr. Tilem’s cases received great notoriety and public attention. Mr. Tilem was honored for his effort by various departments within the New York City Police Department including the Detective Bureau, the Organized Crime Investigation Division and the Police Academy. Mr. Tilem was also assigned to conduct educational and training classes for police officers, prosecutors and public schools. He resigned from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office in the fall of 2001 as a Senior Prosecutor to pursue a career in private practice.

After resigning from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Tilem started Lenihan & Tilem, LLP a White Plains, New York law firm where he continued to handle high profile cases. In connection to one such case, Mr. Tilem appeared on television including appearances on 60 Minutes and CNN. At Lenihan & Tilem, he considerably expanded his already substantial litigation experience, appearing frequently in both State and Federal Courts on both civil and criminal cases and litigating a wide variety of real estate, commercial, estate, criminal, matrimonial and Family Court matters.

Since founding Tilem & Associates, P.C., Mr. Tilem has continued to litigate in both State and Federal Courts and has continued his representation of clients involved in high-profile cases. Mr. Tilem appears regularly in the newspaper and on television concerning his representation in such cases and as a legal commentator. Mr. Tilem has recently been retained in connection to the litigation surrounding the Estate of Russell Jones (a rapper also known as “Old Dirty Bastard” or “ODB”).

Mr. Tilem was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and was awarded his Bachelors of Arts Degrees in Economics and Biology from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mr. Tilem received his Juris Doctor (JD) from Pace University School of Law at the White, Plains, New York campus in the spring of 1991.
