Suspected federal drug trafficking in Florida

The potential penalties for drug-related crimes typically vary according the type of charges filed and the amount and type of drugs involved. Federal drug trafficking is a serious charge in Florida that is aggressively prosecuted. Acting quickly to build a strong and focused defense is advisable to anyone facing such circumstances.

Retaining immediate legal assistance from an experienced criminal defense lawyer who has successfully defended others accused of serious drug crimes may increase one's options for overcoming various legal challenges during impending hearings and, if necessary, a trial. A criminal lawyer can challenge the prosecution to validate every element of charges that have been filed.  There have been many instances where defendants have merely been in the wrong place at the wrong time, leading to misguided accusations.

An attorney can help determine whether any personal rights were violated during the course of any police search related to the charges. When heavy drugs like heroin are involved, the stakes are high and acting under the guidance of an experienced attorney simply makes good sense. One man was recently arrested from a private residence after police claimed he was manufacturing cocaine within a home where children also resided.

Police claim the man was in possession drug paraphernalia and of drugs that he intended to sell. Anyone facing similar federal drug trafficking issues in Florida can request a meeting with a defense attorney as soon as it becomes apparent an investigation is underway or immediately following an arrest. All further interactions with law enforcement agents and court officials can then be handled by the attorney.
