The Consequences of a Drug Crimes Conviction Are Severe

Federal and state laws provide severe penalties for those convicted of drug offenses, including lengthy mandatory prison sentences. Enhancements to drug charges will likely greatly increase the legal consequence of a conviction. Enhancements can include:

  • Prior offenses
  • Crimes that occur in proximity to schools, hospitals and parks
  • The presence or use of weapons
  • The occurrence of injuries or death

Our lawyers are fully experienced in all types of drug charges, including drug trafficking, distributing and selling, drug possession with intent to distribute and drug charges relating to prescription drugs. Our entire team possesses strong backgrounds in criminal defense, including past work with a prominent defense law firm, experience in criminal appellate court and past experience as a prosecutor.

We Understand How to Defend Against Drug Charges

Even if you believe the evidence against you is overwhelming, we can help. We can work to:

  • Identify faults in police procedures
  • Have evidence dismissed
  • Negotiate favorable dispositions
  • Argue for reduced sentences
  • Fight ineligibility for parole
  • Fight to avoid enhanced penalties
