Drug Crimes

Duval County Misdemeanor and Felony Drug Attorney

If you are accused of a drug crime in any city you need the best drug attorney Duval County has available. The long standing reputation of Duval county being tough on drug crimes and meting out lengthy jail sentences for those found guilty of possession, intent to sell illegal drugs, distribution and growing and manufacturing of controlled substances is well founded.

Growing marijuana or manufacturing drugs like methamphetamine are normally prosecuted as a federal crime. You can also be charged when so called ‘starter’ chemicals used in the manufacturing of certain controlled substances are found.

If drugs are found in your possession you could be charged with intent to sell as well, even if the drugs were for your own personal use. The differences in the charges that can be brought against you are extreme. Instead of looking at probation or a rehabilitation program you could face years behind bars. Penalties for a drug charge are based on the type and amount of drug in your possession, intent to sell, or distribute, your past criminal arrests and the circumstances surrounding your case.

If you find yourself in this situation, you need a Duval county drug attorney that is part of a team with years of experience dealing with Duval County judges and prosecutors. The criminal defense attorneys at The Dick Law Firm have the experience working within the Duval County Justice System that can make the difference between you spending time in jail, or spending time with your family.

Are You Facing a Drug Charge in Duval County?

Your first action should be to hire an experienced Duval County Drug Attorney immediately. It can be a major determining factor in the outcome of you case if your attorneys have experience in the Duval County justice system.

One of the first steps in a drug possession charge is a motion to suppress the evidence. The police are often found guilty of illegal search and seizure, so we try to get a dismissal without ever going to trial. Information that is revealed during this hearing can help your case if it does go to trial.

We will also file a motion to suppress any incriminating statements you may have made prior to being made aware of your Miranda rights. Without a search warrant, the police have to establish probable cause for a search. During the hearing the police officer will have to explain under oath the probable cause that instigated the search for possession of a controlled substance.

Our experienced criminal defense trial lawyers will aggressively uphold your rights by law and challenge any information that the police officer tries to present as facts in a cross-examination. Without legitimate probable cause, the judge must dismiss the case.
