LibertyBell Law Group defense lawyers use various resources to gather evidence for a strong defense. Having won countless cases of drug offenses ranging from petty crime to federal drug trafficking has given our attorneys vast experience in dealing with drug trafficking offenses.

Crimes involving drug trafficking can lead to long prison terms.

It is imperative that your lawyers have complete knowledge of how the rules of evidence work in a courtroom, especially those involving narcotics. It’s also necessary for a narcotics lawyer to have a high degree of credibility when negotiating penalties with the prosecution. Which is why it is very important your attorney have the skills that can only be gained through experience and successful winning of many drug cases. Apart from these indispensable skills, our criminal lawyers and drug trafficking experts are armed with various strategies and tactics from the beginning to the end of a criminal drug case to make it difficult to prosecute every step of the way.


  • A police officer faced 20 years in prison for paying an FBI informant with cocaine, marijuana and heroin. Our defense attorney, Gina Tennen, and local attorney Powell and Dunham were able to prevent this client from going to jail!
  • One of our best federal and criminal lawyers, Gina Tennen, got the case dismissed from a client accused of conspiring to plant and grow marijuana. The case involved more than 360 plants. The client may have received a $ 1,000,000 fine and gone to a federal prison for 40 years.

Since the beginning of the war against drug trafficking in the 1980s, the government has been tirelessly pursuing drug crimes. According to state and federal lawmakers, the drugs are a gateway that eventually can lead to other types of criminal activity. Drug cases provide a lot of publicity for prosecutors and politicians.

Citizens who may be involved in the possession or distribution of drugs are the prosecutors’ preferred targets because drug convictions tend to be easier to obtain than others. The prevalence of narcotic use leads people to assume that drug accusations are not severe.

On the contrary, the illegal use of drugs has among the most stringent sentencing guidelines in the criminal justice system, so it is essential that you have a lawyer with experience in drug trafficking cases who can defend you. It is unlikely that a public defender will defend you as hard as a private criminal lawyer simply because public defenders do not have the time or resources to do so. Even minor drug charges can damage your record, cause your driver’s license to be lost, and difficulty in maintaining or getting a job. Sentences on possession of controlled substances, manufacture, distribution or trafficking of drugs can lead to lengthy prison terms with mandatory sentencing guidelines. Drug charges are fought by the skilled and qualified criminal attorneys of LibertyBell Law Group.


The most common approach to a drug crime defense is to get the charges thrown out or reduced substantially without going to trial. Pre-trial defense strategies generally focus on the suppression or handling of evidence. This requires more than knowledge of the law. It requires the experience of a criminal lawyer with drug trafficking strategies backed by forensic experts who can conduct the necessary research for a strong criminal defense.

Drug charges are harshly prosecuted and carry severe penalties. Only a few grams of some substances can lead to imprisonment.

Unlike many other offenses, drug charges can result in federal prosecution. The federal government has an entire agency dedicated exclusively to pursuing the convictions of drug traffickers. It is very important that you determine if you are facing federal charges or if you are under federal investigation. Even a case brought against you by the state can later be handed over to the federal government. If so, you need LibertyBell Law Group attorneys, who have experience in federal crimes involving the DEA, the FBI and other investigations of government agencies.

Our defense strategies and our cadre of state and federal drug trafficking trial lawyers have saved our clients from years of imprisonment.

  • Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.

    I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!

  • Best defense lawyers in the country.

    I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.

  • She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.

    My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.

  • Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.

    When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.

  • Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.

    Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.
