Common Drug Crime Defense Strategies

We are aware of the numerous challenges facing defendants when it comes to drug offenses, as well as the common problems involved in prosecuting or defending them. If possible, our priority is to get the charges dropped. We can then quickly proceed to trial or seek a reduced sentence, depending on your needs.

We must consider these important points when preparing our defense.

  1. What was the method of seizing the drugs? Are there any other items that could be connected to the drugs?
  2. Was the warrant for the search executed by the police officer?
  3. Was there probable cause for the officer to search you?
  4. If drugs were discovered during a traffic stop, were you stopped legally?

Drug crime cases are often dominated by evidence. To weaken the case of the prosecutor, we know how to vigorously attack the evidence. Every shred of evidence is carefully reviewed by our law firm to determine if there was an illegal search and seizure, entrapment, or other violation during acquisition. We push for the judge to throw out evidence that we believe was improperly obtained. The prosecutor’s case will be significantly weaker if the drug in question is not used as evidence.
