Felony Drug Charges
I represent people who have been charged with drug possession and intent to sell in the South Florida area. I handle misdemeanor and felony drug possession charges involving all types of controlled substances, including:
- Prescription medications (OxyContin, Oxycodone, Vicodin, etc.)
Defenses to Drug Charges
These particular charges contain the largest amount of defenses because many times the police action violates a citizens right to privacy, self incrimination, right to be free from illegal searches and seizures in our homes, papers and affects. These are rights guaranteed by the 4th 5th and 6th amendments of our constitution. Police must abide by a strict code of police procedure in order to establish “Probable Cause” in arresting an person for this offense. None of these procedures can be violated or omitted.
Many times these cases are orchestrated with the use of confidential informants who are either paid by police, or working with the police to reduce their own prison sentences. These informants make terrible witnesses for the police because they are not only convicted felons they are motivated to lie for the police to get a reduced sentence for their own illegal drug activity. Also they may have entrapped an unwilling participant into the drug trade which is also an illegal under our constitution.
These police violations can result in reduced charges, dismissal or a a complete vindication. You want a lawyer to be on top of the latest defenses that can favorably effect your case. I am experienced, knowledgeable , tenacious and committed to know all these defenses and to assert all your defenses to get the best result possible.
When you hire me as your attorney, I will immediately intervene on your behalf, calling the prosecution to share any information the arresting officer may have ignored or left out. This could make the difference in whether formal charges are filed or potentially dropped.
I will thoroughly evaluate your arrest records and any evidence associated with your case. If the law enforcement officer did not have probable cause to arrest you, or your search and seizure was conducted illegally, I will file motions to suppress evidence or dismiss charges. If litigation is in your best interests, I will skillfully and tenaciously protect your rights in the courtroom.
