Atlanta Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney
Proven Legal Representation for Drug Crimes in Atlanta
Drug trafficking is a serious crime, much more so than being arrested for
a small amount of illegal drugs for personal use. Drug trafficking includes
manufacturing drugs with the intent to sell and distribute, and/or transport, export
or import the substance. Penalties for drug trafficking are far more serious
Consult with an

this crime can be defended, and an experienced attorney can help you.
Lawyer for Drug Trafficking Charges in Atlanta
If you are convicted of trafficking drugs, you could be facing very stiff
fines and a prison sentence that could be for many years, even life. There
are circumstances that increase or enhance standard penalties as well.
For example, if you sell drugs to a minor, or you conduct drug sales or
distribution on or near a school, prison time will be far longer. The type of controlled
substance involved makes a difference in the level of the charge. You
can also expect harsher penalties if you have a prior criminal record.
A defense against drug trafficking charges will require a full and complete
investigation into the facts. Just because you have been accused of a
crime, it does not mean you will be convicted. There is a risk in any
criminal case, and there are innocent people serving time in prison right
now. Being completely innocent is not sufficient to guarantee an acquittal.
There have been cases where innocent people have unwittingly been found
with drugs that belonged to someone else. In some cases, law enforcement
officers violate an offender's civil rights and have engaged in illegal
search & seizure, which must be exposed to the court.
