A conviction for federal drug trafficking can result in extremely severe penalties, including substantial fines and lengthy jail time. These penalties can escalate quickly depending on the kind and amount of drugs involved and the accused person's criminal history. In addition, the resulting criminal record will follow you for the rest of your life. Even if the amount of drugs is not sufficient for a trafficking charge, you could still face possession with the intent to distribute.
If you are facing charges for any type of federal drug trafficking offense — or even if you are just being investigated and have not yet been charged — it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. At Law Offices of Kelly & Conte, we represent clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania in a broad range of these cases as well as conspiracy to sell, dispense or manufacture.
Building A Compelling Defense On Your Behalf
In the investigation of drug trafficking cases, the government often takes an "arrest everyone and sort it out later" approach. Its hope is to find one person, no matter how remotely connected to the operation, who can get them to the leader of the drug ring. Even if you simply loaned your car to someone who used it to transport a shipment, you can be arrested on conspiracy charges.
We understand how federal prosecutors operate and the lengths they will go to in pursuit of a conviction. We know how to find the flaws in their cases, and we know how to use those flaws to strengthen your defense. If your rights were violated with an illegal search or some other unlawful tactic, we will take steps to have the evidence suppressed and work to have the charges dismissed. If a dismissal is out of reach, we will fight aggressively to secure the best available outcome on your behalf.
