Defending Clients Against A Range Of Drug Offenses
State and federal authorities devote a lot of resources to continue the so-called “war on drugs.” Sting operations, searches and information from informants can all lead to controlled substance charges against an individual. If you are suspected or accused of a drug crime (possession, trafficking, intent to sell or distribute, manufacturing), it is important to know that you may have options to fight any charges. Just because the government has developed evidence against you, a charge is not a finding of guilt. Police may assume you are guilty, but you do not have to.
What is going to happen to me? It’s one of the first questions many of our clients ask. The truth is that it’s often difficult to predict the outcome of criminal matters because there are so many unique facts and legal issues involved in each case.
At Levine Law, we have the extensive experience necessary to protect the constitutional rights of people facing drug charges. Having handled thousands of felony and misdemeanor cases, our Milwaukee law firm knows which strategies will protect your interests and achieve the best possible results.
Contact A Lawyer Before You Speak With Police
If you are being charged with a drug crime or are under pre-investigation, it is critical to speak with us as soon as possible. Early action gives us the time to fight for you. At our law firm, we remind clients that legal motions are our arsenal, allowing us to challenge constitutional issues. Our focus is on fighting hard to protect your constitutional rights.
We also remind clients not to take action on their own. Do not speak to the police without your lawyer present. Even statements that seem harmless could lead to trouble, so it’s best to seek the experienced guidance we provide before you meet with a detective, give permission for a search, turn yourself in or take other legal action.
Waukesha Attorneys Handling Search And Seizure Cases
Most criminal cases — especially drug cases — are fought and won on search and seizure issues. The case depends on whether the police violated your constitutional rights when collecting evidence against you. Our focus is on protecting your rights, and we do so by keeping illegally obtained evidence out of the courtroom.
Serving Milwaukee and areas throughout southeastern Wisconsin, we handle even the most complex charges involving a range of drugs and drug offenses, including:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to distribute/drug distribution
- Operating a drug house
- Drug conspiracy/conspiracy to distribute
- Drug manufacturing
- Prescription medication and opioid offenses
- Federal drug charges
Each case is different. Drug cases arise from many circumstances. Sometimes, a drug charge begins with a traffic stop. Other times, defendants are stopped on the street by police. Many are set up by snitches who are secretly working with Wisconsin law enforcement.
