Our Drug Crimes Defense Practice

We aggressively defend people who have been charged with violating drug laws, handling cases involving:

      • Possession or possession with intent to deliver or distribute
      • Sale, distribution or trafficking of controlled substances
      • Cultivation or manufacture of illegal drugs
      • Conspiring with others to violate the Pennsylvania or New Jersey drug laws

We protect the rights of individuals charged with crimes involving any type of controlled substance, including:

      • Marijuana
      • Crack / Cocaine
      • Methamphetamines
      • Heroin
      • Prescription drugs such as morphine, codeine, and oxycodone (also known as OxyContin, Percodan, Percocet)

We take a serious approach to the defense of drug charges, questioning the conduct of police and prosecutors wherever possible. We will carefully review the evidence to determine whether there was probable cause to make any search, seizure or arrest, and will verify that all tips or similar information came from reliable witnesses. We will look at the details of your arrest, including whether police read you your rights after taking you into custody.

We will tenaciously follow all leads in your case, looking to establish all relevant and meaningful defenses. Our attorneys will identify opportunities to impeach the credibility of prosecution witnesses, and will identify and prepare all witnesses in support of your claim.
