Prosecutors in New York State take drug crimes very seriously. This is especially true if you are arrested for trafficking drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or prescription pills. These charges can result in jail time and hefty fines. You do not want to procrastinate. Contact the offices of Friedman & Ranzenhofer, Attorneys at Law for experienced drug trafficking defense.
Drug Trafficking Defense | Possible Strategies
Criminal cases are dependent upon evidence. Our lawyers have worked on both sides of criminal cases—because of our experience as former prosecutors, we know how to build these cases to set up our defendants in the best possible light and attack the evidence that the other side will bring forward. We start at the beginning and work onward from there. Some possible strategies we can employ include:
- Did police follow the correct procedures during the arrest and interrogation, including reading you your Miranda rights?
- How were the drugs discovered? Was the search conducted on you legal? Were there any witnesses present who can testify on your behalf?
- What testing methods were employed by law enforcement? Is all equipment used properly calibrated and maintained? Are the personnel at testing facilities properly certified and trained?
That’s just the start. We will examine all evidence, interview all witnesses, and build the case you need to aggressively fight back.
