Drug distribution consists of selling or distributing illegal drugs (or controlled substances). Drug trafficking is a similar charge but is usually considered large-scale drug distribution. If you have been arrested and charged with drug distribution, you need someone who is going to protect your rights against all odds.
Our attorneys have the experience necessary and are ready to aggressively defend clients against accusations made by the prosecution. Because our attorneys are former prosecutors, we have an advantage that many drug defense firms do not. The case that the prosecution has against you may not be enough for conviction.
It may be necessary to do a thorough investigation of the evidence which has been gathered against you. Our firm has helped clients to overcome serious drug charges and may be able to help you with your drug crime accusations. Speak with a Tampa drug crime attorney today if you have recently been charged with drug distribution.
It is vital that drug distribution charges are handled immediately. The earlier a skilled attorney can work on your case, the better chance you will have of building a strong defense and avoiding penalties. It is possible that the evidence that is being used against you was not obtained legally and in such a case it will not be taken into consideration by the court. In some cases, a search and seizure was done without a proper warrant and this violates your constitutional rights.
The criminal defense attorney team from our firm may be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed entirely if fast action is undertaken on your behalf. Drug distribution may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Factors which will determine the severity of the charge include whether or not the defendant has any prior charges and the amount of the drug which was being distributed. A full review of your case should be done immediately after the arrest to increase the possibility of a favorable outcome.
