Federal Drug Offense Defense Lawyers: Trust Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek

Are you currently facing a federal drug offense? Unfortunately, it’s not going to be an easy case. The federal prosecutors handling drug violations are known to be particularly tough against drug offenders, and the federal court system is an entirely different ballgame. That’s why you need a skilled and experienced federal criminal defense lawyer on your side, fighting for you every step of the way. At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys have the expertise to defend you against any type of federal drug offense.

The Importance of a Skilled Lawyer in Drug Crimes

Federal drug laws are contained in Title 21 of the United States Code, which designates each drug as belonging to one of five “schedules” based on a variety of factors, such as the drug’s potential for abuse and scientific evidence of its pharmacological effects. Marijuana and heroin are categorized as Schedule I drugs, while morphine and cocaine are classified as Schedule II drugs. Drug offenses like drug cultivation, drug importation, drug manufacturing, drug possession, drug smuggling, and drug trafficking are serious federal criminal charges.

At Spodek Law Group, we understand that every federal drug case is unique and requires its own defense strategy. Our decades of experience in federal defense law have allowed us to develop solid legal techniques to aggressively fight on your behalf. For example, if the police conducted an illegal search, it could lead to a reduction in your charges or even a complete case dismissal.

The Consequences of a Federal Drug Conviction

If you are convicted of a federal drug offense, you could be facing jail time, probation, large fines, and even asset forfeiture of your personal property. Therefore, it is in your best interest to speak with a qualified attorney if you are facing criminal charges. Our lawyers have a deep understanding of the law and exhibit professionalism that showcases our experience to handle the legal situation. We can help preserve your freedom and your record.

Challenging the Evidence and Defending Your Rights

The best legal defense against a drug crime charge is to challenge how the evidence was obtained. You have a constitutional right against illegal search and seizures. This means any illegal evidence seized can’t be used in court to convict you. However, you will need the legal services of our experienced lawyers to challenge the method the evidence was obtained. If your attorney is successful, then the evidence is suppressed, and the case could be dismissed.

At Spodek Law Group, we have successfully defended hundreds of clients facing serious drug crime charges throughout the state of California. We know how to investigate whether federal authorities violated your Fourth Amendment rights during a stop or search. If a confidential informant was used to collect evidence against you, we know to attack their credibility. Over our many years of criminal defense law practice, we have achieved successful results for our clients.

The Severity of Federal Drug Charges

Certain drug crimes may be considered federal crimes in several different situations. Any drug crime that concerns high volumes or quantities of controlled substances could be considered a federal offense. The schedule of the drug involved in the crime will also affect how the crime will be charged. Schedule I controlled substances have a higher potential for abuse than other drugs and have no medical use. If the type of drug involved in the crime was a Schedule I substance, the likelihood of it being considered a federal offense increases.

DRUG TRAFFICKING

As a nationwide law firm with decades of experience handling drug trafficking cases, Spodek Law Group has the knowledge and expertise to defend clients facing serious drug crime charges. Our skilled attorneys understand that every case is unique and requires a tailored defense strategy.

If you are under investigation or have been arrested for drug trafficking, it is essential to speak with an experienced criminal attorney immediately. At Spodek Law Group, we have successfully defended numerous clients facing serious drug crime charges throughout the country. Our attorneys know how to investigate whether federal authorities violated your Fourth Amendment rights during a stop or search. If a confidential informant was used to collect evidence against you, we know how to attack their credibility. Over the years, our criminal defense practice has achieved successful results for our clients.

Federal drug trafficking crimes are covered in Title 21 of the United States Code. The severity of the penalties depends on several factors, including the type and amount of drug involved, evidence of drug trafficking such as large amounts of cash, weapons, and numerous cell phones, whether it is your first drug offense, whether a minor was involved in the drug trafficking, your criminal history, whether state or international borders were crossed in the offense, whether the drugs were distributed to minors or near a school, and whether anyone was injured or killed in the drug offense.

Even if you are a first-time offender, your sentence could include prison time if you are convicted. It can also include property forfeiture, large fines, and deportation if you are not a United States citizen. The most common types of drugs that are prosecuted in federal court include methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, LSD, PCP, and human growth hormone. 21 U.S. Code § 848 defines the crime of continuing criminal enterprise.

At Spodek Law Group, we understand the seriousness of drug trafficking charges and are committed to providing our clients with aggressive representation. We have a deep understanding of federal drug laws and will fight tirelessly to protect your rights and freedom.

DRUG CULTIVATION

At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys understand that facing federal drug cultivation charges can be a daunting experience. Our nationwide law firm has decades of experience defending clients facing drug cultivation charges and has the knowledge and expertise to defend your case.

According to federal law, it is illegal to grow, sell, distribute, transport, possess, or traffic marijuana. Most federal cultivation cases that involve marijuana are prosecuted as a felony federal drug crime. A cultivating offense includes possession of marijuana seeds, planting seeds, and drying the plants and processing them. Normally, police will charge an individual with cultivation and possession with intent to sell if at least two plants are discovered.

California state law allows marijuana use for medical purposes. However, federal prosecutors can and will pursue criminal charges in a federal court for a marijuana cultivation case.

If you are convicted, you could be facing jail time, probation, large fines, and even asset forfeiture of your personal property. Therefore, it is in your best interest to speak with a qualified attorney if you are facing criminal charges.

At Spodek Law Group, our decades of federal defense law practice have allowed us to develop solid legal techniques to aggressively fight on your behalf. For example, if police conducted an illegal search, it could lead to a reduction in your charges or even complete case dismissal. Every federal drug cultivation case is unique and requires its own defense strategy. Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to develop a strong defense tailored to the specific circumstances of your case.

DRUG IMPORTATION

Federal drug importation is the crime of bringing illegal controlled substances into the United States from another state or country. In many cases, this type of federal criminal offense is connected with drug trafficking, particularly when large quantities of drugs are imported from other countries.
