Drug Crimes Criminal Defense Attorney

Nothing is more important than your freedom. I do everything possible to build a strong case for clients accused of drug crimes. If you or a loved one has been charged with a violation of controlled substances law, the future can be very frightening. Retaining a lawyer experienced in the defense of drug crimes is essential to a good outcome in these cases.

Drug laws and drug-related offenses are brutal. If you are accused of a drug crime, it could result in years in prison and steep fines. You need an attorney that is experienced and capable of doing everything possible to protect your rights. Federal government agencies expend a great deal of resources prosecuting those accused of drug crimes. If you have been accused by the DEA, ATF, ICE, or FBI, you need the support of an experienced defense attorney. I can help.

My Denver criminal defense law firm has more than 30 years of experience representing those accused of drug crimes.

I am serious about representing people who face controlled substances charges. I offer strong and effective criminal defenses in state and federal court against charges involving a wide range of drugs:

  • Money Laundering
  • Cocaine/crack
  • Heroin, Fentanyl, OxyContin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription narcotics
  • Conspiracy and COCA charges

We begin by looking at all possible arguments in your defense. I determine if the search and seizure was legal and will ensure that any evidence illegally obtained is excluded from your case. The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees a right to be free from illegal searches, and I have filed many motions, called motions to suppress, when law enforcement has conducted an illegal search. Illegal searches can occur with or without a search warrant, and an attorney experienced in search and seizure law is critical to a good outcome in your case. I also determine if the punishment you face is fair and we consider all available plea options or non-trial mitigation if it is mutually determined that a jury trial is not appropriate in your case.

In addition to my experience building defenses, I have access to a network of resources that can help you protect your rights. My goal is to build the strongest case in your favor, regardless if your crime is possession, distribution, or any other drug-related charge.

Fighting Drug Charges in Federal Court

My experience includes very serious and complex criminal matters, such as death penalty cases at both the trial and appellate level. The experience I have gained in complex cases such as these is something I can bring to bear in any case.

My approach to defending drug cases, like my approach to all defense cases, is to determine the full and unique story of each of my clients; this helps me to determine the best defense and to demonstrate to the prosecution and judge that my clients are not simply just another faceless case in the war on drugs. I strive to obtain the best results possible whether that be a jury trial or a negotiated disposition. I listen to my clients and their input in cases is very important to me. I am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the Fifth and Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the United States District Court for the Districts of Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Wyoming, the Colorado Supreme Court, and the Wyoming Supreme Court.
