Arrested for Drug Possession? We Can Help.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for drug possession in Miami-Dade County, you’ve come to the right place. Our criminal defense lawyer has been on the front lines fighting drug possession cases while advocating for drug reform in Florida for over 10 years. Drug possession cases range from simple possession to trafficking, and our firm is passionate about helping clients navigate the difficult waters of a drug case.
The first step in a drug possession case is to plead not guilty and demand all evidence from the prosecutor. Once the prosecutor has turned over all evidence, your attorney will review the evidence with you and discuss a strategy based on the evidence. Defenses ranging from constructive possession to illegal search and seizure will be evaluated, and the best option for your individual case will be discussed. Don’t make these decisions on your own, and a google search can’t answer these questions for you; these are things that should only be decided by you and your Miami criminal defense lawyer.
While out on bond for your drug case, it is very important to make sure you have no other contact with law enforcement. While most drug cases qualify for a bond, in the event you’re arrested while out on bond, your bond can be revoked, and you can be required to remain in custody during the resolution of your initial case. While clients don’t want to hear this, and they say they don’t plan on getting arrested again, they also didn’t plan on getting arrested the first time. So, if there was ever a time to be cautious, it’s right after a drug arrest.
Drug possession arrests can be simple, but others can be complicated due to issues such as confidential informants, electronic monitoring, and police corruption. If you have concerns about any of the above, do not hesitate to bring them up in your meeting with the attorney. Our drug defense attorney has defended hundreds of drug cases, and he also prosecuted them during his time at the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.
