Dedicated To Working For You
Many individuals mistakenly assume that only drug dealers are charged with drug trafficking. The truth is, law enforcement can charge you with a felony, exposing you to increased jail time, even if you only have a small amount of illegal substances, such as marijuana or other street drugs, in your possession.
The government’s interdiction efforts to eradicate drug trafficking often include traffic stops. Generally, a driver is initially stopped for a minor traffic offense. The matter quickly escalates into a full search of the vehicle. As your criminal defense team, we will explore all aspects of your stop, addressing questions such as:
- Was the stop legitimate?
- Did probable cause for the stop exist?
- Was criminal profiling involved?
- Did the arresting police officer perform an unconstitutional search and seizure?
- Did law enforcement inform you of your rights?
Rest assured, our attorneys will evaluate every aspect of the stop. If law enforcement officers abuse your rights in any way, we will hold them accountable and make them answer in open court.
Thorough Preparation Of Your Case
Our criminal defense lawyers prepare each case as though it will proceed to trial, but we will use our seasoned negotiation skills to resolve the matter outside the courtroom if possible. It is important to note that our firm believes in negotiating from a position of strength. We believe in settling on our terms, not the prosecutor’s.
