Our quick-acting N.Y. drug crimes lawyer will immediately begin negotiating for your release at the lowest bail amount (or on your own recognizance).
Our team will launch an independent investigation into the charges against you, going over any evidence the prosecution has and arguing for disputable evidence to be thrown out.
Our lawyers leave no stone unturned in identifying and pointing out problems with the prosecution’s case. As former prosecutors ourselves, we recognize a weak case when we see one.
We will take all your options into consideration, including arranging for admission to treatment programs, supervision, or conditional discharge.
Our experienced drug defense attorneys may be able to negotiate to have the charges dismissed or reduced as part of a plea bargain.
With decades of trial experience, our team will prepare a strong and persuasive case to present to a jury if a trial is necessary.

In cases where conviction on some sort of drug charge is inevitable, our team will argue for a minimum sentence and request alternatives to jail time.

Common Defenses to Drug Charges
Prosecutors and police may give the impression that you are facing an indisputable case, but this is rarely the reality. In fact, there are numerous reasons why cases can be dismissed, charges can be lowered, and defendants can be acquitted.
Some of the common questions we explore when building a defense in drug crimes cases include:
Were you subject to an illegal search and seizure to get the evidence that is being used against you?
Was there probable cause for a search or traffic stop?
Did the law enforcement officer read your Miranda rights as soon as you were arrested or whenever you did not feel like you were free to leave?
Were the drugs really in your “possession”?
If you are facing a charge of possession with intent to distribute, is the charge based on possession of drug paraphernalia, a large sum of cash, or a household scale? Should the charge of intent to distribute be reduced to simple possession?
Did a police officer find drugs on you while patting you down for a weapon?
Was any evidence obtained in an illegal manner, or were any procedural mistakes made in your case?
Were you placed in a flawed lineup, or could you have been identified in another misleading way?
If test results are being used against you, is there any evidence of problems with the lab equipment used to obtain those results?
Our N.Y. drug crimes lawyer, with their experience, will ask the necessary questions to identify any weaknesses in the prosecution's case. We maintain that it is the responsibility of the prosecution to prove their case and we will do our best to make it difficult for them.
