As practicing defense attorneys and former Manhattan prosecutors, the founding partners at Crotty Saland, PC each have years of practical courtroom and legal experience handling drug possessing allegations and arrests. Our New York criminal defense attorneys will begin preparing your defense by examining all the details of your case and getting to know you as an individual. Nothing is too big and nothing is too small. Your lawyer will want to know all the circumstances surrounding the charges, including the exact nature of the police search and information about the substance in question.
Every case is different; so is every defense. After establishing the facts of the case, your counsel may be able to challenge the nature of the stop and search in order to have the substance suppressed. Alternatively, it may be that the evidence itself can be questioned. Perhaps your conduct may serve as a basis for mitigating the charges. None of these potential defenses are exclusive of another.
It is crucial to work closely from the beginning with an attorney who has experience defending drug cases in order to establish the most vigorous defense of your rights. For most people, the most important goal is to complete the process without having a lasting criminal record. For some people, even a plea to a non-criminal violation will still handicap their future.
