Defense of Narcotics Cases in the Courts of New York State

Cases involving Narcotics or controlled substance are the most commonly prosecuted cases in the New York and Federal Criminal Justice System.

Generally, the severity of drug crimes depends on:

  • the type of drugs involved,
  • the amount or quantity of the drugs involved, and
  • if there is evidence that the drugs were to be sold to another person.

Federal sentencing guidelines and congressionally-imposed minimum sentences that apply to narcotics cases are very complex and confusing and it is very important that your defense attorney has experience defending persons accused of federal narcotics charges.

You can find additional narcotics-related crimes under the United States Code.

If you, or someone you love, is the target of an investigation related to drug crimes, or has already been arrested and charged with a drug related crime, and are looking for an honest, passionate and compassionate defense attorney call us immediately.
