The government's drug enforcement efforts to eradicate drug trafficking often include traffic stops. Generally, a driver is initially stopped for a minor traffic offense. Sometimes, this action quickly turns into a full search of the vehicle. The experienced drug transportation defense attorneys at our law firm will explore all aspects of your case, addressing questions such as:

  • Did probable cause for the stop exist?
  • Was the stop legitimate?
  • Was criminal profiling involved?
  • Did law enforcement inform you of your rights?

If law enforcement officers abuse your rights in any way, our attorneys will hold them accountable and make them answer in open court. We prepare each case as though it will proceed to trial, but use our seasoned negotiation skills to resolve the matter outside the courtroom if possible. It is important to note that your firm believes in negotiating from a position of strength. The case should be settled on our terms, not the prosecutions.
