Drug crimes can encompass a wide array of charges ranging anywhere from simple possession to large-scale narcotics-manufacturing operations and are often subject to mandatory sentencing.
At Charles Vincent & Associates, we have handled many cases involving drug crimes, and we are very experienced in helping people accused of drug crimes navigate the justice system. We work hard to provide our clients with the strongest defense possible. We dive into the details of every case. We will explore all options for having the charges dismissed or evidence thrown out. When this is not possible, we will do everything we can to minimize the impact of the charges.
Build A Strong Drug Charge Defense
We have assisted clients accused of possessing, manufacturing and distributing many different types of drugs, including:
- Prescription narcotics
When facing drug charges, it is important to build a strong defense early. When you retain our firm, we will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest, identifying any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against you.
Consequences Of A Manufacturing/Distribution Charge
The manufacturing and selling of narcotics can lead not only to jail time but also to the forfeiture of assets, if those assets are found to be involved in a criminal enterprise. Cases involving a significant quantity of a controlled substance are very serious charges that fall under federal jurisdiction. We are experienced trial attorneys who practice in federal court and can take on any federal narcotics charge.
How To Handle Police Searches And Seizures
We advise our clients not to consent to searches by the police. When the police pull over a suspect and ask him or her to step out of the vehicle, the suspect should comply but should not give consent to a search. He or she should also ask for a lawyer immediately and refuse to speak to the police until he or she has had an opportunity to speak to an attorney. This is the same advice we give to anyone accused of committing any crime — it is the best way to increase the likelihood of a positive outcome.
When the case comes to us, we will examine whether the police had probable cause to stop our client, and whether the officers followed the law. If we discover that the police made an illegal stop, we may be able to get the case dismissed.
We do everything in our power to get the case dismissed or lessen the charges — our goal is to achieve the most favorable outcomes for our clients.
