A Drug Crime Charge Poses Serious Long-Term Consequences
Whether you were pulled over on the highway or caught in a law enforcement sting, an arrest on drug charges can be a scary ordeal. With the possibility of prison time and a felony conviction, it is all the more critical to hire a great criminal defense lawyer.
At the law firm of Iacullo, Martino, Machtemes & Reinitz Attorneys at Law, in New Jersey, we can protect your rights from being violated by the government. We provide a smart and aggressive criminal defense for all drug crimes. We do not start with the presumption of a plea bargain; we challenge the case and prepare for trial to put clients in the best position for a favorable outcome. Our lawyers have more than 45 years of criminal law experience and have tried cases in federal, state and municipal courts throughout the state.
A Strong Defense For Your Drug Crime Allegation
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. Our attorneys know 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.
Our legal team can defend you in the full spectrum of drug-related offenses such as:
- 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
