How we defend people accused of drug crimes
State and federal laws prohibit the production, distribution and use of various illegal substances such as cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin. Every day, Florida residents read or hear about people being charged with drug crimes. In fact, some of those charged have been wrongfully accused of crimes or are victims of circumstances over which they have little control. The only way for anyone accused of such a crime to fight the charges is by establishing a strong criminal defense that tackles evidence, procedures and prosecutors’ arguments. Failure to do so can increase the chances of conviction.
Our law firm is well-versed in handling drug-related cases. We investigate to determine where the charges came from and whether the evidence is enough to convict the defendant. If authorities failed to follow proper procedures such as obtaining a search warrant before entering a defendant’s home and seizing evidence, then any evidence confiscated in such a case can be deemed inadmissible by a court. We can also question how and where drugs were allegedly found and whether a proper search warrant was obtained. We can challenge any evidence that alleges that a defendant knew drugs were on the property where they were found or that someone else did not own them. We can also question police procedures, including whether the defendant’s constitutional rights were violated during any interrogation.
All of these steps can strengthen a defense. With our experience, we can find ways to fight for the best possible outcome in a criminal case.
