When you’re facing drug charges, it is essential that you get an attorney involved right away. An experienced New York drug crime lawyer is going to be able to look at the evidence that the district attorney’s office has with a more experienced eye than the average citizen is going to be able to do. Here at our firm, we’re able to look at the drugs, look at the laboratory report that the prosecution will provide to determine if you’ve actually even been charged with the right charge from the beginning.

A lot of times the charges are based on the weight of the controlled substance, which when they determine how much of the substance is actually a controlled substance, the weight we have been able to successfully argue is able to be brought down, resulting in a lesser felony offense.
