Aggressively Combatting Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking, defined as the trade or dealing of illicit drugs and/or the sale or exchange of drugs, is a felony-level offense that can result in a minimum of five years in prison. Individuals charged with drug trafficking often face the full might of the prosecution’s office as Florida continues to wage its war on drugs. When facing such serious charges and such a severe stance by the prosecution, it is important to hire an attorney who will fight to protect your future from the harm caused by a conviction.
At the law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., our Panama City drug trafficking lawyers leverage more than 35 years of experience to offer knowledgeable and aggressive defense against your charges. On your behalf, we will fight to limit the harm caused by a conviction by aggressively negotiating a favorable plea agreement or by proving your innocence in a court trial.
The Knowledge You Need To Mount A Strong Defense
Our knowledge of state and federal drug laws allows us to offer the advice you need to understand your charges, the penalties you face and the options you have for defending yourself. By carefully examining your case with the help of experts, including private investigators and forensics examiners, we look for any information that can be used during your defense, including:
- Evidence of illegal search and seizure
- Conflicting witness statements
- Contradictory evidence
- Deviations from proper police procedure and policy
- Infringements upon your rights
- Lack of physical evidence
This information can be invaluable during your defense, and will be used to apply pressure on the prosecution to uphold its burden of proof; by applying pressure on the prosecutor trying your case, we may convince them to reduce or dismiss your charges or offer favorable plea terms.
