New York Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Have You Been Charged with a Drug Crime in NYC?

Drug crimes are prosecuted aggressively and require the intelligent defense efforts of a New York criminal defense attorney. Certain drug crimes are federal offenses, some are considered felonies and in some instances, drug crime charges can result in removal proceedings being initiated against you. The severity of your charges and the consequences depend on the type and amount of drug involved, the specific crime allegedly committed and the presence of any aggravating factors such as the involvement of children. Your criminal record can also have a bearing on how the prosecution pursues your case and any penalties ordered by the court.

Drug charges can be filed for:

  • Possession (including illegal possession of prescription drugs)
  • Sales
  • Cultivation / manufacturing
  • Transportation
  • Importation / trafficking
  • Prescription fraud
  • Drug conspiracy

As a New York resident, it is vital you seek immediate legal assistance if accused or arrested on drug related charges. The sooner your legal counsel comes on board, the more opportunity there is to defend your rights and seek ways to have your charges dropped or reduced..
