State & Federal Drug Crime Defense

State and federal laws often overlap when it comes to drug crimes, and the federal government has vast resources for prosecution. Each experienced Birmingham drug crime defense lawyer on our team is ready to stand up for your rights and provide vigorous representation on your behalf. Our legal team has successfully defended high-profile local and national drug cases, and are ready to do the same for you.

It is important to remember that those charged with drug crimes still have rights. From simple marijuana possession to cocaine trafficking, we are ready to come to your defense.

We will fight for you against all manner of state and federal drug charges, including:

  • Possession of drugs and controlled substances
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Distribution and conspiracy to distribute
  • Drug sales
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing and cultivation
  • Drug importation
  • Money laundering

Comprehensive Case Strategies

No matter how big or small your case may seem, our Birmingham criminal defense lawyers will examine the facts thoroughly. Attorneys who focus in drug defense will look for weaknesses in evidence, search and seizure, chain of possession, and other legal issues. Based on our findings and the wishes of the client, we will then implement a strategy for a dismissal, victory, or plea bargain. We will also negotiate alternative outcomes for first-time offenders and defend you against asset forfeiture and other consequences of intrusive investigations. Regardless of who acts as lead counsel, our entire team provides input on each case so you will have full guidance at every step.

If you have been charged with a drug crime, contact us at (205) 900-7714 to arrange a free confidential evaluation with a Birmingham drug crime defense attorney.
