Drug Charges in the US are serious. We make sure your rights weren’t violated.

Drug Trafficking

Have you been arrested on drug trafficking charges in the United States?

If you’ve been arrested on drug trafficking charges in the US, someone selling, importing or transporting drugs like marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, heroin, and other opioids, you could face major prison time. When the US government considers you to be a drug trafficker, it’s very important for you to treat the accusation seriously. You’ll want a criminal defense lawyer to protect and defend your rights to assure justice is done.

What are the two ways drug trafficking charges occur?

Reactive and proactive investigations. For instance, when officers find a lot of drugs in the vehicle at a random traffic stop, that’s a reactive investigation. In contrast, proactive investigations are much more involved. In those drug cases, federal agents and officers extensively investigate a drug trafficker and their associates. When the officials believe they have enough evidence, they arrest the suspects.

How do we handle a new drug trafficker case?

The first thing the Ralls & Wille criminal defense attorneys do when we get a new case is make sure your rights weren’t violated. That means we analyze the officers’ investigation. For example, we look at how the officers:

  • Made the traffic stop
  • Got a search warrant
  • Handled a wiretap
  • Used confidential information sources

Why do we examine how the officers handled the investigation and arrest?

Because if your rights have been violated, we may be able to either get the case dismissed or get a favorable plea agreement.

Our criminal defense team also reviews each case for trial strategy. That means we search for the holes in the government’s evidence that show the defendant is innocent. When it comes to criminal justice, Ralls & Wille attorneys have the experience to highlight these evidence problems to juries so that the jury members understand.

Your non-guilty decision at trial, or a favorable plea agreement, are the outcomes we fight hard to accomplish.
