Effective Drug Crime Defense
Many charges such as trafficking carry mandatory prison time upon conviction. For Example, Possession of methamphetamine at a first offense can result in a mandatory sentence of 5 to 15 years in prison. Early intervention by a qualified criminal defense lawyer is extremely critical. You could already be under investigation. You could even be talking to undercover officers or confidential informants without knowing it. The prosecution can and will use anything you say against you.
When we get involved, our firm invokes immediate steps to protect your rights and attack the prosecution’s case. We examine every part of the investigation, the arrest, and the search and seizure. For example we go over questions such as: Did they have probable cause for the warrants or wiretap? Did they exceed the scope of the warrant? Is the government’s informant reliable or willing to say anything to help his or her own cause? Do the amount of drugs and the circumstances warrant intent to sell or trafficking charges? Our team can help you find the answers to these questions and construct an aggressive strategy to defend you.
Our Commitment to Clients
Our number one concern is to help our clients evade prison and allow them to return to their lives and loved ones as soon as possible. First offenders on possession charges may even be eligible for diversion (including TASC drug treatment, random testing and monitoring) to avoid a criminal record. This opportunity is usually only available only once, making it important for you to work with the correct lawyer even if you have no criminal history.
If you have prior convictions or face more serious drug crimes, we prepare for trial, but always look for holes in the prosecution’s case to expand your options. We exhaust every strategy to get charges dismissed, evidence suppressed, or to find ways to downgrade charges or negotiate smaller sentences.
