Thorough Investigation of Your San Antonio Drug Crime Case
Drug crimes can be prosecuted as both state and federal crimes. In most any drug case you will have to go up against expert attorneys and high level law enforcement. I have had many years of experience in criminal defense of drug crimes and I have successfully represented clients at many levels. There are many defenses which can be utilized in drug crimes cases. I can ensure that your constitutional rights are not violated, and if they are I may be able to get the evidence that was acquired illegally dismissed.
Without any evidence, the prosecution may not be able to convict you. I will thoroughly review every circumstance surrounding your case including whether or not the police had a proper search warrant, if it was an illegal search and seizure, or an unconstitutional stop. Often the best defense is to challenge the drug charge and suppress the evidence. If the evidence is suppressed, the prosecution will have much less to work with. Even if the evidence is not suppressed, the prosecution will often reduce or dismiss charges.
