Aggressive advocacy needed when facing drug charges

Although many states are relaxing their drug laws, there is no doubt that the war on drugs wages on. As a result, many individuals have found themselves facing serious drug charges in the wake of aggressive investigations that seek to stem the distribution, possession and use of illegal narcotics. For these accused individuals, a criminal conviction can all but ruin their lives. They may face jail, prison, large fines and a marred record that renders living a normal life extremely difficult. If convicted of a drug crime, these individuals may even struggle to secure housing and employment.

With so much on the line, those who have been accused of drug crimes need to do everything in their power to ensure that they protect themselves as fully as is possible under the circumstances. Although this is obvious, many people lack the knowledge and skills to go toe-to-toe with prosecutors who have dedicated their lives to trying criminal cases, many of which deal with drug laws.

This is why it is often imperative for defendants to seek legal help from a qualified criminal defense team like the one at the Law Office of James L Riotto. We know how the prosecution is going to pursue its case, which allows us to focus on issues that may help provide reasonable doubt as to our clients’ guilt. We utilize the rules of evidence to our advantage, which may allow us to suppress damaging evidence and/or submit powerful exonerating evidence to the court.

We are aggressive in our advocacy for our clients. Whether we are negotiating a plea deal or fighting for an acquittal at trial, we ensure that no stone has been left unturned. When facing criminal allegations, especially those related to drug crimes, it is crucial to know that you have done everything to protect yourself. This includes making the decision to seek legal help when necessary. Those who want to learn more about how we stand up for our clients can continue to look through our web page.
