Orlando Federal Drug Crimes Attorney

Federal drug crime charges differ from state drug crime charges largely on the basis of quantity of longer prison sentences. Federal authorities and courts assume that possession of a very large amount of cocaine or marijuana amounts to intent to distribute the drugs. Hundreds of pounds of illegal substances are obviously more than what an individual would consume. The federal government is largely concerned with preventing or punishing drug trafficking.

When you look for a federal drug crime defense lawyer in Florida, look for an attorney with years of experience and a reputation for effective advocacy. Keep in mind that a conviction at the federal level will usually result in prison sentences. Preventing a case from reaching the sentencing stage is the most important goal in a federal drug crime case.

  • Can the amount of drugs be contested, bringing the sentence down?
  • Were constitutional violations such as illegal search and seizure committed by law enforcement, giving a reason to seek dismissal of the charges altogether?
  • Are there any safety valves that might protect a defendant from draconian mandatory federal sentencing guidelines in the event of a conviction?
