Drug Crimes

State and Federal Drug Defense Attorney

Possessing, selling, trafficking and manufacturing controlled substances are all serious criminal offenses.  Whether the drug is marijuana, crack, cocaine, crystal meth, Ecstasy, heroin or an illegal prescription, state and federal laws provide for harsh fines and penalties when an individual is convicted on a drug charge.  If you have been charged with a drug crime, you need to have a dedicated criminal attorney on your side who knows the law and how to best protect your rights at each step of the legal process.

Fighting for the Rights of Clients Facing Drug Charges

The drug crime attorneys at Sacco Tyner have years of experience fighting for clients who have been charged with drug-related offenses.  Our lawyers understand that dealing with a drug charge is a very serious matter and we are well aware of the devastating effects that a drug conviction can have on your life and the lives of the people around you.  We defend clients in federal and state narcotics cases encompassing all types of controlled substances, including matters involving:

One of the most common criminal offenses that our attorneys handle is the possession of marijuana.  Despite changing legislation in a number of states, marijuana is still considered to be an illegal drug at the federal level and the possession of marijuana in New York can still result in an arrest.  Beyond potential  jail time and monetary penalties, a conviction for possessing marijuana or any other illegal drug can have serious collateral consequences, including jeopardizing an individual’s professional license or making an individual ineligible to receive financial aid for college.  With so much at risk, it is critical to seek the advice and representation of a competent drug defense attorney who can build a powerful defense on your behalf.

Conducting a Thorough Investigation in Every Drug Case

The legal professionals at Sacco Tyner are skilled trial attorneys committed to achieving the best possible results in every case that they take on.  Our firm limits its legal practice to defending clients throughout the State of New York in state and federal criminal matters. 

Whether the crime involves possessing marijuana or international narcotics trafficking, our attorneys will investigate every detail of your case.  We will gather and analyze information from police reports, drug test results, witness statements and witness interviews.  Our lawyers know what the law requires of law enforcement officials and that the outcome of your case is likely to turn upon the search and seizure tactics used in connection with your arrest.  When you hire our firm, we will review the warrants and evidence in your case with a fine-toothed comb and if we find a mistake, we will and file a motion to dismiss the charges and fight to suppress all unlawfully seized evidence.
