Drug Crime Cases We Handle
Colasessano Law handles all types of drug crime charges at both the state and federal level, including:
- Possession of marijuana
- Possession of cocaine
- Prescription drug offenses
- Possession of illegal drug paraphernalia and contraband
- Drug manufacture and cultivation charges
- Drug distribution charges
- Federal drug conspiracy charges
- Drug trafficking
- Operation of meth labs
Drug crimes carry various penalties, depending on the type and quantity of the drugs as well as the nature of the activities involved. Simple possession for your own use is a much less serious charge than drug distribution or trafficking on a large scale at the federal level.
Either way, the attorney you choose in any drug arrests is vitally important. At Colasessano Law, we have represented countless individuals in drug charges over the past three decades. We are knowledgeable about a wide range of plea scenarios in possession charges that may allow you to avoid a criminal conviction or plead guilty to a lesser defense. Should we take your case to trial, our experience can mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal. We can make pre-trial motions that may weaken the prosecution’s evidence and improve your chances of success. Unlike some law firms that focus almost exclusively on seeking plea arrangements, we prepare thoroughly for the possibility of trial and will not hesitate to do so if it is in your best interests.
Drug Sales & Distribution Charges
If you are charged with the illegal sale or distribution of drugs, the prosecution will be seeking significant criminal penalties which may include a lengthy jail or prison sentence. Many state and federal drug charges carry mandatory jail sentences that are extremely severe. Our attorney will stand up to the prosecution and aggressively defend your rights. We have handled many drug trafficking cases and have a proven record of results in felony criminal cases. We are familiar with the challenges prosecutors face when trying to prove the elements of a drug distribution, trafficking, or conspiracy charge.
ATTACKING DRUG CHARGES
Most drug charges are supported by questionable evidence. To prove their case, prosecutors often have to rely on witnesses with credibility issues, sketchy eye-witness accounts, grainy video footage, inaudible audio footage, and chain of custody issues that could be a basis for a case dismissal or an acquittal.
While no responsible attorney will guarantee a particular result in any given case, we do everything possible to seek the best possible result for your charges. We like winning and take a great deal of pride in what we do. As a result, we have achieved positive results for many clients.
