Defending Adults, College Students And Juveniles

The consequences of drug charges can ruin a career and limit a young life. In addition to criminal penalties, which can include steep fines and lengthy jail time, an individual may also incur civil penalties as well, such as the loss of certain civil liberties.

If you or your child has been charged with drug possession, possession with intent to sell or some other drug crime, get immediate legal help. Do not talk with the police without first speaking with a lawyer.

Experience Matters In Criminal Defense

Founding attorney Gary Greenwald has more than 40 years of experience handling a variety of criminal offenses, including drug crimes cases, in New York. He and our other criminal defense lawyers have defended thousands of clients spanning all ages who have been charged with drug possession, intent to sell, drug sales and drug distribution of:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine or crack
  • Heroine
  • Mollies
  • Mushrooms
  • Illegal sale of prescription drugs such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, marijuana and Xanax

Defense against drug crimes charges often hinges on the problem of illegal search and seizure. It also requires answers to these questions:

  • Did the police have a right to stop you on the street or to pull you over and search your car?
  • Did they have a right to search your backpack or your apartment?

If the police found drugs on you by using illegal tactics, that evidence cannot be admitted in court.

The case against you may not be as clear-cut as the prosecutor says it is. We will investigate the facts of your case and then work to get charges dropped or negotiate to get them reduced. Drug treatment may be one option to avoid jail time.
