Experience Against Complex, Harsh Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking offenses are punished harshly in Florida. These crimes are all felonies that carry mandatory prison sentences and extremely large fines if you are convicted. Even if you were not caught distributing or selling drugs, it can be presumed that you were trafficking drugs merely due to the amount of drugs found in your possession. No matter how limited your role in the crime, or whether you are innocent, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified drug crime defense attorney.
Drug trafficking cases can be extremely complicated and many legal and factual issues need to be considered.

Fighting To Protect Your Rights
Our criminal defense attorneys have represented countless clients in drug trafficking cases. We will work to keep you out of prison and do everything we can to protect your freedom. We will examine your case from every side to ensure that your rights were respected at all times, including having your Miranda rights read to you. We will challenge the validity of any search warrants as well as the officer’s right to search your home or vehicle. Any violation of your rights could result in the suppression of evidence — weakening the state’s case against you.
Thoroughly Investigating Your Case
During our investigation, we will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to beat the charges against you. In cases where the drugs were found in your vehicle, we frequently subpoena dispatch logs and compare them to the police reports to determine the officer’s actual motivation for a traffic stop. If there were other people in your car at the time of the stop, an argument could be made that the drugs were not yours.
