How Can A Lawyer Help If I’m Arrested For A Large Amount Of Drugs In Louisiana?

Sponsored Answer

Regardless of the amount of drugs involved, the outcome of your case is not a foregone conclusion. The police investigation needs to be scrutinized for any possible violations of your rights before, during or after your arrest.

With more than 65 combined years of experience in state and federal criminal defense, the attorneys at Damico & Stockstill can help you by:

  • Investigating whether any searches or seizures were unlawful
  • Investigating whether the traffic stop was lawful if your charge resulted from a traffic stop
  • Investigating police procedure for any violations of your rights before, during or after your arrest
  • Representing you in any communications with investigators and in court
  • Scrutinizing the prosecution’s case against you
  • Challenging the prosecution’s claims at every turn
  • Working to minimize the negative effects of the charge
  • Seeking a reduction or dismissal of charges

The reality is that police officers and prosecutors make mistakes. At Damico & Stockstill, we know how to uncover those mistakes and help our clients seek the best possible outcome in even the most difficult cases, including those involving charges of drug manufacturing, drug trafficking and drug distribution.

Prosecutors Have Significant Resources; You Should, Too

Keep in mind that state and federal investigators have significant resources to bring charges in drug cases, especially when large amounts of drugs are involved. You need legal counsel on your side as soon as possible to protect your rights and freedom.

Federal Drug Charges

The attorneys at Damico & Stockstill handle cases in state and federal courts. If you are being investigated for or charged with a federal drug crime, you need a defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible – a lawyer who handles federal cases. Not every attorney handles cases in federal court. We do.

Factors Determining Penalties For Drug Offenses

The severity of the possible penalties for a drug offense may depend on a variety of factors, including any prior offenses, the type of drug you allegedly possessed, the amount of the drug, and the federal and state laws regarding that specific controlled substance.

For example, possessing a large amount of heroin, opioids or meth may lead to more severe penalties than possessing a large amount of marijuana. However, the outcome of every case depends on the specific facts involved.

We Create Effective Defense Strategies

Our attorneys have extensive experience in state and federal drug cases, including those involving trafficking, manufacturing and distribution. If you have been accused of a serious drug crime, we can investigate your case and determine the best course of action for minimizing the negative consequences and protecting your rights and freedom.
