NJ Drug Manufacturing Lawyers

New Jersey Drug Manufacturing Lawyers

When law enforcement brings drug charges against you, expect them to do all they can to get a conviction. If there is one thing police and prosecutors love to point to when demonstrating how well they are doing their jobs, it is drug busts. In situations where they allege you were involved in a drug manufacturing operation, the charges against you will be extremely serious and may have federal authorities overseeing the case. When in this situation, you will be facing a long prison sentence if convicted, which is why you need experienced New Jersey drug manufacturing lawyers in charge of your case as soon as possible.

What are Illegal Substances?

When you are arrested on drug manufacturing charges, it will likely be because authorities have supposedly caught you manufacturing such illegal substances as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, or amphetamines. However, with the nation’s opioid crisis being what it is today, law enforcement may also charge you with manufacturing various types of painkillers for distribution, especially if the area in which you live is known for having an opioid epidemic. Since authorities will always be eager to make a drug bust, don’t hesitate to hire New Jersey drug manufacturing lawyers who know how to examine evidence in these cases and plan various types of legal strategies for your defense.

State or Federal Charges

If you are arrested for drug manufacturing, the next question will be whether you are facing state or federal charges. In most situations, drug charges of this nature are brought forth by local law enforcement agencies, and thus are handled by state prosecutors. However, if the government believes it possesses evidence against you showing your drug manufacturing operation was part of a multi-state drug trafficking ring, federal charges may be levied against you. When deciding whether to pursue federal charges, authorities take several things into consideration such as how much of a substance had been manufactured, whether or not you were involved in its distribution, and so forth. By hiring a skilled drug manufacturing defense lawyer, they may be able to negotiate with prosecutors to strike a plea-bargain deal, giving you a lesser sentence than if you take your chances at trial.

Proving Your Guilt

While on the surface it may appear that it would be easy for federal authorities to prove you were manufacturing drugs, the truth is it is much more difficult than many people realize. In fact, proving an individual is guilty of manufacturing illegal substances is one of the hardest cases for prosecutors to win. In these cases, prosecutors must not only clearly demonstrate you were actually involved in manufacturing the substances in question, but also show you had a clear intent to do so. Since there are often many other people involved in these operations, your attorney may be able to show you were simply caught up in a situation over which you had no control, or may in fact have been framed by others or even law enforcement authorities.

If you are looking for a lawyer that listens, is aggressive where needed, and holds his word above all else, Todd is the best pick. I had hired multiple attorneys prior to hiring the Spodek Group for a white collar case. The first thing that stood out to me was the cost, as anyone going through the process and dealing with the system, money was tight at that time - especially after hiring and firing multiple lawyers. The cost was not as high as others which was definitely a plus. Todd's intake process was also unlike other attorneys. He took the time to actually listen. He cared. He was trying to put himself in my shoes while I was explaining the situation to him and he really took the time to understand the whole situation. Other lawyers will give you 15 mins and send you a retainer agreement. Not Todd, I think he spent almost two hours with me as I was explaining everything.Not only was he great during the onboarding process, he was supportive and very informative through the entire plea process and eventually sentencing. After hiring him, I asked if I should hire a prison consultant, he told me to save my money as he would do everything they would. He was right and held up to his word. Later on I would hear from others that went with the prison consultants that they were a waste of money - I am glad I listened to Todd!When it came time for sentencing, two days prior to sentencing, the prosecutor tried increasing my proposed prison time by almost double - apparently a normal move. Todd and his team worked with me non-stop through the weekend prior to sentencing to ensure that I was not given additional prison time. Again, he took the time to listen and came up with a strategy to explain the case with great detail.Unfortunately, I did plead guilty as that was my best option. Todd and his whole team wrote up nearly 300 pages of a summary of what happened and why I should not be given prison time. If I breakdown the amount I spent with Todd versus the amount of work that I saw being done, I am shocked I was not charged four times as much. The other benefit was, a lot of criminal defense lawyers were just a single attorney with a paralegal or two. Todd had a team of people that I dealt with (5-7 people that I interacted with), but he was ALWAYS accessible. It would never take him more than an hour to reply unless he was in court.I was sentenced to prison and I was emotionally distraught. Todd and his team did whatever they could even after sentencing to make sure I was alright. He personally stayed in touch with my family to ensure I was doing alright and offered support to them. Most lawyers would consider the job complete at sentencing, not Todd.After prison, Todd still spent time with me to make sure I was on the right track and avoiding any potential risks in the future. He has also been giving advice on how to navigate probation etc and has not been looking at the clock for billing.Although I wish I had never been arrested in the first place, I am glad I had Todd and his team in my corner. Without them I likely would have had to spend a lot more time in prison than I did.Thank you, Todd, and the entire Spodek Law team, for helping turn what was a nightmare into a manageable situation!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence.Thank you team!

I recently had Spodek Law Group represent me for a legal matter in NYC and I am thoroughly impressed with their services.Alex Zhik secured the best possible outcome for my case.It was a seamless journey from the initial consultation to the resolution of my legal matter. From the moment I spoke to Todd about my case, his enthusiasm to help was evident, setting a positive tone for the entire experience. The efficiency and professionalism displayed by the team is commendable.A particularly noteworthy aspect of their service is their user-friendly portal to upload your documents/evidence. This not only simplified the process, but showcases their commitment to streamline the client experience.Lastly, in an industry where legal fees can often be a concern, I found their pricing to be very reasonable, making needing legal assistance feel accessible and stress-free.I am grateful for their support and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

Drug Informants

Though law enforcement has long relied on drug informants to provide them information about local drug activity, the fact is most of these informants are extremely unreliable in providing accurate information. In fact, many of these informants are people who are already facing serious drug charges of their own, and may simply be trying to throw you under the bus in an effort to get a lighter sentence for themselves. In many cases, it is determined informants deliberately provided police with misleading information or created entrapment situations on individuals to ensure they would be arrested. If the evidence police and prosecutors have against you comes mainly from a drug informant, put New Jersey drug manufacturing lawyers to work on your case immediately so that the informant’s true motives can be made clear to everyone.

Your Legal Defenses to Drug Manufacturing Charges

When you are facing drug manufacturing charges from state or local authorities, always remember there are many defense options your attorney may be able to focus on from the beginning. For example, along with drug informants who may have been paid by police to set you up, it is also possible that police used improper arrest procedures, conducted an unlawful search and seizure of your home or business, or may in fact have tampered with evidence to make it appear as if you are guilty. Whatever the case may be, hire an excellent defense attorney immediately and allow them to carefully examine the evidence that supposedly proves your guilt.

Even though drug manufacturing charges are serious and the cases extremely complex, they are quite winnable when you have an excellent attorney by your side. Rather than let yourself be sent to prison for decades, hire New Jersey drug manufacturing lawyers who have a track record of success with these cases.
