Military DRUG DISTRIBUTION Criminal Lawyers

In recent years, the U.S. Armed Forces have fallen under tremendous controversies, and those who serve and defend this country have found it more difficult every year. This decade has brought unbelievable contention with the gender issues that are becoming apparent and the continual issue of illegal drugs among the enlisted.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there is more illegal drug use, especially prescription drugs, in the armed forces than ever before. The rates between 2002 and 2005 have more than doubled, and prescription drug use between the years 2005 and 2008, has tripled.

The armed services mirror the illegal drug growth in non-military America, too. With more arrests on the streets of the cities, more have also been arrested in every branch of the military, and as prescription abuse has risen in recent years, so has the illegal drug use and distribution.

In the larger cities, meth and heroin have returned to popularity with a vengeance, and the military similarly shows that the numbers have risen exponentially. The most popular drugs both inside and outside of the military are opiates, painkillers, sedatives, stimulants and marijuana and cocaine, and they have always been available to the military personnel.

New classes of synthetic drugs have appeared and become popular in Armed Forces as well. They include synthetic cathinone called bath salts, synthetic marijuana or Spice or K2 and N-bomb or Smiles, which is a mescaline derivative that produces hallucinations. No matter what the mind-altering substance is, all are found in the Armed Forces at an astounding rate, and the military personnel who are arrested and found guilty are paying a tremendous price.

If you are enlisted in any branch of the military and are arrested using, possessing or distributing any of the illegal drugs, it is a serious offense. Any offense that brings you before a judge in the Armed Forces is serious because in the military you will be tried not only for the offense but also your service record and career will come before the judge. It will be a court-martial that will decide if you will be demoted or even remain in the service at all.

The attorneys at Raiser and Kenniff Law Firm are a team of experienced defense lawyers who know the grave and serious nature of a military charge. The Uniform Code of Military Justice or UCMJ holds the code of military criminal law and the procedures that must be adhered to in an arrest. With over 50 years experience, the attorneys of Raiser and Kenniff Law Firm in New York are experts in Military Law.

Any involvement in the distribution of drugs, in any division of the armed forces, results in a process that could lead to harsh punishments if you are found guilty. A drug and alcohol urinalysis is required and must pass three phases. If it is positive, military careers are often destroyed, so if you are found guilty, it is best to contact an experienced defense lawyer immediately.

In the military, drug charges are handled differently from those in civil courts. After the urinalysis has been confirmed, a lawyer will be able to help with situations such as PTSD or traumatic brain disorder involving alcohol and drug use. Some arrested may be addicted to drugs and alcohol and qualify to be sent to a rehabilitation center. These are situations that your defense attorney can help you with as they have expert knowledge of military law. At Raiser and Kenniff, you have the expertise of the whole team behind you.

Drug cases are typically handled through administrative action. More serious cases result in some form of court-martial. Drug distribution arrests are prosecuted under the Military Law Article 112a, and their result is in a special or general court-martial. There is no easy way out.

The team at Raiser & Kenniff are premier military criminal defense lawyers and work 24/7 for the best interests of their clients. Contact one of our three locations for a free consultation as soon as possible. From our founding fathers into recent years, our firm has won the most difficult cases both in military law and civil law in the state of New York.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
