TYPES OF CASES
- Possession of: paraphernalia, marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, acid, mushrooms, ecstasy, methamphetamines, PCP, and pharmaceuticals
- Conspiracy to Distribute
- Drug Trafficking
We understand that circumstances are hard sometimes and people turn to drug distribution as a source of income or a manner in which to support their family. We do not cast judgment on those charged with crimes of this nature. The government often pursues lengthy jail sentences, the lengths of some of which are mandatory. As we pursue every ethical avenue of defense, there are often serious issues regarding the legality of the strategies employed by law enforcement to apprehend an individual or gather evidence against an individual. Remember, if the government does not follow the rules set out by the constitution, it is a judge’s duty to throw out evidence that was discovered as a result of an illegal search.
ILLEGAL SEARCH AND SEIZURE OF DRUGS
A crucial tactic in defending drug cases is suppression of evidence. Everyone is protected by the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution which acts against illegal searches and seizures by the police. We are knowledgeable on the laws of search and seizure, and if your person, vehicle, or home was illegally searched or if you were illegally stopped in your vehicle, we can seek to have the evidence in your case suppressed.
DRUG DIVERSION PROGRAMS
If this is your first time being charged with possession, we may be able to smoothly negotiate a deal with the government. We may be able to arrange a drug diversion program or community service hours in exchange for the government agreeing not to prosecute the case against you.
