Don’t Go Down Without a Fight – Hire a Top Prescription Drug Criminal Lawyer

Facing prescription drug charges? You need New York’s top criminal defense attorney in your corner. Prescription drug prosecutions are on the rise, with authorities taking an increasingly harsh approach. Charges like prescription fraud, distribution, possession with intent to sell, and doctor shopping all come with steep penalties. But experienced prescription drug crime lawyers know how to build an aggressive defense to beat the charges.

At Spodek Law Group, our team of elite NYC defense attorneys has a proven track record of achieving dismissals, acquittals, and favorable plea deals in complex prescription drug cases. If you’re under investigation or facing charges, read on to learn how to find the right lawyer.

Why Prescription Drug Charges Are Increasing

According to the DEA, prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic levels in recent years. Addictions to potent painkillers like Oxycontin, Vicodin and stimulants like Adderall are too common. As authorities crack down, anyone caught up in prescription drug crimes faces devastating consequences without an experienced defense lawyer.

Prosecutors often see those battling addiction as criminals rather than people needing help. But an expert prescription drug lawyer can advocate for rehabilitation instead of prison. They understand complex medical and pharmaceutical issues prosecutors exploit to falsely paint normal use as illegal distribution or fraud.

Finding the Right Prescription Drug Lawyer

All attorneys are not created equal. When facing complex prescription drug charges, it’s essential to find a lawyer with specific experience defending these cases. Here’s what to look for:

Prescription Drug Case Experience – Ask directly how many they’ve defended. Dozens or hundreds demonstrate expertise prosecutors lack.

Medical Expertise – Understanding technical pharmacological, medical, and regulatory issues allows exposing flaws in the prosecution’s stance.

Trial Record – While most lawyers plead out cases, you want one ready to go to court if needed. Look for multiple prescription drug trial wins.

Negotiation Skills – Even when pleading, you need an attorney able to argue for dismissing or reducing charges to avoid long sentences.

Reputation with Local Prosecutors – A lawyer known for beating prescription drug cases has added leverage prosecutors fear.
