Drug Crimes Defense
Drug crimes can range from a very minor charge to extremely serious charges. Often times there is a lot that can be done with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. When charged with possession/delivery/manufacturing of a controlled substance there is usually a search issue involved. Search issues are some of the most interesting and challenging areas of criminal defense. We go through every last detail of your case from the very beginning of the incident, this allows us to have thorough knowledge of any issues that may be helpful to your representation.
When an individual is charged with distributing or manufacturing a controlled substance, there is likely a heightened level of law enforcement involved. These law enforcement officers may have made mistakes regarding your case. You need an attorney who can spot issues with the search, the search warrant, and the procedure that was or was not followed in your case. It is crucially important for you to hire an attorney who is in your corner throughout your case.
Many cities and counties also have what is commonly known as an “inter-agency task force.” This consists of a group of law enforcement officers from different jurisdictions teaming up to apprehend people committing specific criminal acts. This is primarily seen in major drug busts, controlled sales of narcotics, prostitution/human trafficking rings, and organized theft rings. If you are charged with a crime that was a result of an organized law enforcement goal or a sting, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.
Crimes involving Theft, Burglary, or Identity Theft often have a drug element that is the driving force behind them. This firm has helped many clients get back on track while successfully fighting the charges that the defendant is accused of.
Some common situations are:
- Possession of a controlled substance;
- A controlled substance DUII;
- Delivery of a controlled substance, and;
- Manufacturing a controlled substance.
How are these fought?
Drug crimes are often successfully fought pre-trial. There are many search issues that an attorney can raise in a motion to suppress for unlawful search and seizure, for example. We use every resource available to fight your case. From drafting motions to suppress, to using other methods to keep out evidence. Our firm uses the best investigators (many who have a law enforcement background) to comb through every aspect of your case and ensure the best possible result.
Mitigation is important in every criminal case, but can be extremely important when it comes to a drug case. Often times prosecutors and judges will respond favorably to proof that a client has been actively trying to overcome addiction and improve their life. An attorney can help guide you along the most direct route to improving the way a prosecutor or judge will view you.
