Drug Crime Defense | Possible Strategies
We know what matters in any criminal case is evidence, and because we’ve built these cases as prosecutors, we know how to attack the evidence that the prosecution will bring. We start at the beginning and we work forward from there. For instance:
- Did police follow correct procedures during the arrest and interrogation, including reading you your Miranda warnings?
- How were drugs discovered? Were you searched during a traffic stop? Was the stop legal? Was the search legal? Were there other people present, and who witnessed these events?
- What testing methods were employed? Is all equipment properly calibrated and maintained? Are personnel at testing facilities properly certified and trained?
That’s just the start. We examine the evidence, interview witnesses, and build the case you need to fight back.
