Our legal team will take a comprehensive approach while representing you through negotiations and trial.
Fourth Amendment Search and Seizure Laws
Most drug-related cases will turn on the prosecutions' ability to provide evidence of drug possession or distribution. Usually evidence includes paraphernalia, cash or a monetary exchange, or the physical evidence of drugs on a person, in a vehicle or in the home of the defendant. When officers search your person, car or home, they must follow strict procedures to prevent the violation of your Fourth Amendment rights. Our attorneys are experienced in the investigation of drug crimes cases and can determine whether arresting officers acted illegally. In the event that your rights were violated, we will work hard to suppress the evidence to defeat your charges.
We are experienced in the defense of drug crimes in cases involving:
- Narcotics and controlled substances
- Prescription drugs
- Marijuana, cocaine, heroin
- Ecstasy and other club drugs
