Our familiarity with all aspects of cases involving heroin, marijuana, crack, cocaine, ecstasy, PCP, crystal meth and prescription drugs allows us to prepare a thorough, strategic defense on your behalf.
Drug crimes include possession, sales, distribution, manufacturing, trafficking, prescription fraud and prescription forgery. The penalties involved for each depend on the type and amount of drug involved, the specific circumstances of the incident and your criminal history. If the alleged crime was committed near a school, park, or similar community facility, harsher charges and penalties apply. A first degree misdemeanor charge can result in up to 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine. A first degree felony conviction can carry up to 30 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
Fighting Your Drug Charges
As former state prosecutors, we know how the state build s criminal cases and we are able to identify and exploit weaknesses which may lead to reduced penalties or charges, or even a dismissal of the charges against you. We can predict what will be needed in your defense to counter the prosecution's arguments. Additionally, we are Board Certified as Criminal Trial Lawyers by the Florida state bar, a distinction which allows us to be officially titled experts in this field. Only 1% of the more than 87,000 lawyers practicing in our state are criminal law specialists, as achieving it requires extensive experience, knowledge and peer recommendations as to character, ethics and professionalism.
While most local firms provide a quote for "pleaing your case out" and an additional fee for actually trying your case in front of a jury, we do not operate this way. Our firm will quote you one fee so that you are not pressured into shortchanging your defense and your future by avoiding trial due to financial considerations. As trial attorneys, we are prepared to aggressively try your case and will do so where this best serves you.
