Protect Your Future

Many times, people plead to simple drug offenses due to the minimal penalties associated with a minor drug charge. By entering a plea to a drug offense, you spend the rest of your life having to explain your criminal record. Many valid defenses to drug offenses are lost because someone entered a plea to a drug offense that could have been defended. Our lawyers will raise all possible defenses, minimize exposure, and fight to get the charges dismissed.

What are Federal Drug Crimes?

Federal drug crime charges differ from state drug crime charges largely on the basis of longer prison sentences. Federal authorities and courts assume that possession of a very large quantity of cocaine or marijuana amounts to intent to distribute the drugs. When large amounts of drugs are discovered, the federal government often applies drug trafficking charges, which carry very long-term sentences.

When you look for a federal drug crime defense lawyer in Florida, look for an attorney with years of experience and a reputation for effective advocacy. Keep in mind that a conviction at the federal level will usually result in prison sentences. Preventing a case from reaching the sentencing stage is the most important goal in a federal drug crime case.

There are several questions to ask to try to prevent a conviction at the federal level, including:

  • Can the amount of drugs be contested, bringing the sentence down?
  • Were constitutional violations such as illegal search and seizure committed by law enforcement, giving a reason to seek dismissal of the charges altogether?
  • Are there any safety valves that might protect a defendant from draconian mandatory federal sentencing guidelines in the event of a conviction?

The defense of criminal drug crimes in federal court is very different than in state court. If you are facing federal charges, you should speak to a lawyer who has experience in federal courtrooms.
