Maryland Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyers

Thoughtful & Carefully Crafted Defense Strategies

Drug trafficking can usually be defined as the illegal production and distribution of controlled substances. The United States is the world’s largest market for illegal drugs. About 13 million Americans spend close to $60 billion each year to purchase controlled substances. The most heavily abused drugs in the past have been marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. But today, synthetic drugs such as amphetamines and Ecstasy are also extremely popular.

If you have been arrested or charged with drug trafficking or conspiracy to traffic in drugs in Maryland, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss ways to fight the charges against you. From our offices in Bowie, Frederick, Lexington Park, Prince Frederick, and Waldorf, Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC provides aggressive and results-driven representation to individuals who are facing these serious charges.

Fighting Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking offenses commonly involve:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • Crack
  • PCP
  • Fentanyl and Fentanyl Analogue
  • Flunitrazepam (marketed under the trade name Rohypnol)

Both state and federal penalties for drug trafficking are extremely severe. In a drug trafficking investigation, local law enforcement agencies as well as the FBI attempt to build a strong case against the suspect before an arrest. If your drug trafficking case involves an aggravating factor – such as firearm possession, prior drug conviction, or involvement in a conspiracy – you could be facing a lengthy prison sentence.

Felony Crimes

Since America began the “war on drugs,” penalties for drug trafficking have increased year after year. The U.S. DEA prosecutes drug trafficking cases vigorously. A first offense in a drug trafficking felony case could lead to a five-year prison sentence. Drug trafficking felonies can also lead to millions of dollars in fines.

Highly Skilled Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

Search and seizure laws apply in drug trafficking cases as they apply to simple drug possession cases. The primary evidence in these cases is the drugs. If the law enforcement agency conducting the search and seizure fails to follow proper procedure or violates your Constitutional rights, then the evidence can be thrown out in court and your case can be dismissed.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking, our experienced Maryland drug trafficking defense lawyers will strive to get your charges dismissed or reduced. We can also fight to get your fines and penalties reduced.
