Federal Drug Charge? You Need A Defense Attorney, Now.

When Are Drug Charges Filed In Federal Court?
In most cases, federal authorities leave less serious charges to state law enforcement agencies and prosecutors — even when they could choose to exercise jurisdiction under the law. The DEA and federal prosecutors focus on cases involving the trafficking or manufacture of substantial amounts of controlled substances.
Federal authorities may also bring related charges, including conspiracy or racketeering, against alleged drug traffickers and people who have aided them. It is essential to work with a lawyer who has extensive experience in a variety of federal criminal matters. Our attorneys can help you understand the allegations and take steps to minimize the consequences of federal drug charges.
