Our Attorneys Are Experienced Handling Drug Charges In Federal Court
While many criminal defense law firms defend clients against state charges, relatively few firms are qualified or prepared to handle federal charges. Our attorneys have years of experience defending clients against drug charges. We defend clients against charges such as the following:
- Drug trafficking: Drug distribution is considered a federal offense if you are accused of participating in the interstate drug trade. You could face this charge based on allegations of transporting drugs across state lines or possessing large amounts of drugs.
- Cultivation and manufacturing: These charges can be brought in federal or state court. Federal prosecutors are most likely to pursue cultivation and manufacturing charges against people who they believe are involved in gang activity.
- Conspiracy and racketeering: Under federal conspiracy law and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, you can be charged with a federal drug crime solely for allegedly participating in a drug scheme or organization.
Federal drug laws are not affected by the amendments to New York’s drug laws. If you have been charged with a drug crime in federal court, you may be facing a harsher sentence than you would in state court, where diversion and drug treatment options are now available.
