Your Alleged Drug Crime May Catch Federal Attention

In order for possession to become possession with intent to distribute, there must usually be large quantities of an illegal drug or controlled substance present at the time of your arrest. When this is the case, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) may get involved with the investigation. They will want to determine how far your “distribution” means actually reach, and who else may be tied to the allegations. With so much force coming your way, you cannot afford to not have a strong and reliable Phoenix criminal defense lawyer in front of you.

Make Them Struggle for a Conviction

The truth of the matter is that drug possession with intent to distribute accusations are merely that and nothing more. You could theoretically have six pounds of marijuana in your car and still intent to use it all for yourself. In order to seal a conviction in their case, the prosecution has to definitively show that you did intent to give or sell the illicit substances to another party. This is where many prosecutors flounder, especially when a confident and highly-experienced defense attorney stands in their way. With our knowledge of the law and litigation, we can challenge every word that the opposition uses to try to put you behind bars.

Providing Arizona State Residents the Defense They Deserve

If it were up to the criminal justice system, absolutely everyone who is arrested for a crime, no matter how minimal, would be convicted. To keep the system in check and make certain it remains fair and unbiased, it is the job of Mesa criminal defense lawyers like us to step up and defend our clients with tenacity. No one should be convicted when innocent or sentenced harshly when reduced penalties should have been negotiated.
