Contact our New York cocaine possession defense lawyer today for a free consultation. A lawyer from our firm can be available 24/7. We charge low flat rates so you can expect how much our services will cost.Improper Search or Seizure
If police perform a legal arrest, then their search and/or seizures related to that arrest are also legal. Sometimes, though, police perform illegal searches and seizures. For instance, if you are pulled over for speeding, the officer might not have probable cause to search your car. Therefore, any cocaine found during the search is improper.
If we find that evidence was gathered during an improper search or seizure, we can fight to have that evidence suppressed and your charge reduced or dismissed.Finding Weaknesses in the Prosecution's Case
Facing cocaine charges is scary. You could suffer severe felony consequences. Our New York City lawyers investigate your case from top to bottom. We search for weaknesses. We examine the prosecutor's evidence, we talk to detectives and we get witness statements. Once we have established weaknesses, we can negotiate your case.Avoiding Jail And Probation
Depending on the facts of your case and your criminal history, we can try to negotiate alternatives to jail time. Our criminal defense attorneys can try to convince the prosecutor to replace your jail sentence with a treatment program, such as the Center for Application Substance Abuse Technology (CASAT), or an inpatient hospital program.For a Free Consultation, Contact a Queens DWAI Lawyer Today
