Nutley, Clifton And Newark Drug Possession Attorneys

Anthony Iacullo is a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney* and a former Bergen County assistant prosecutor. In nearly 25 years of criminal law experience, he has handled major drug crime cases on both sides of the law. Our legal team can defend you in the full spectrum of drug-related offenses:

  • Possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of cocaine, crack, heroin, etc.
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Gun crimes

Drug crimes commonly result from a traffic stop or an undercover operation. Despite the tremendous resources available to local police and federal agencies, they do not always follow the law and proper procedure in making drug arrests. Anthony Iacullo knows how to challenge the prosecution's case on the basis of reasonable suspicion, Fourth Amendment violations, (search and seizure), testimony of informants and other grounds.

We have been successful with motions to dismiss and motions to suppress. In appropriate cases, we resolve drug possession charges through conditional discharge or drug court. Our knowledge of federal court and federal sentencing guidelines enables us to negotiate favorable pleas. When the alternatives are not acceptable, we are prepared to aggressively defend our clients before a jury.
