State And Federal Drug Crimes Defense
Depending on the specifics of the offense, a drug crime may include state and federal charges. It is critical that your attorney has federal defense experience and can battle federal prosecutors to protect your rights. Federal drug sentencing guidelines are extremely harsh and can send you to prison for life. At The Dickerson & Smith Law Group, we are experienced in state and federal criminal defense. We provide aggressive defense against a wide range of drug charges.

A Conviction Can Mean A Lengthy Prison Sentence

If you were pulled over and arrested on suspicion of a drug crime, talk with an attorney right away. The police must have a reason to stop your vehicle and/or search it. In many cases, they lack probable cause and do not follow proper police procedure. We will investigate your arrest and determine whether your constitutional rights were violated. In all drug crime cases, the legality of the search and seizure is a key issue. If your constitutional rights were violated during the search, seizure or arrest, we can file a motion to suppress the evidence or to dismiss the charges against you.
