Drug Distribution Defense!

The most common approach in defense of drug distribution is to get the case dismissed or the charges substantially reduced without a trial. Pre-trial defense strategies used by lawyers usually center around the suppression or handling of evidence. This requires the attorneys to have more than just knowledge of the law. It requires the lawyers to have specific experience in drug distribution defense strategies backed by forensic experts who can conduct the research necessary.

Drug distribution is aggressively prosecuted and carry severe penalties. Just a few grams of some substances can imprison you for many years.

Unlike many other crimes, drug distribution can lead to federal prosecution. The federal government has an entire agency dedicated solely to pursuing drug trafficking, the DEA. It is critical for a lawyer to find out whether you are facing federal charges or under federal investigation. Even an investigation of drug distribution or trafficking made by your state can later be handed to federal agents. If so, you need a lawyer experienced in federal defense and courts.
