New York Drug Trafficking Attorney
Defending Drug Trafficking & Distribution Charges in Suffolk & Nassau Counties
The State of New York has some of the harshest drug distribution and drug trafficking laws in the country. Not only are these laws notoriously severe, they are also extremely complex. To make matters worse, New York prosecutors are infamous for aggressively pursuing drug-related charges to uphold their “tough on drugs” reputation.
When the odds are stacked against you, you can level the playing field by retaining the counsel of Barket Epstein Kearon Aldea & LoTurco, LLP, a firm that has a national reputation for results. Our New York drug trafficking lawyers have represented thousands of clients at the state and federal level. Our team includes renowned legal professionals who are known as thought leaders in their respective fields, and we have diverse experience as former prosecutors, legal aid attorneys, and even judges. Barket Epstein has the resources and experience to take on any type of drug crime case, at any level.
What is a Drug Distribution Charge in New York?
To be guilty of the criminal sale, or distribution, of a controlled substance or marijuana in New York, a person must knowingly and unlawfully sell a controlled substance or marijuana. New York law provides an extensive list of controlled substances, with the most common being: cocaine, ecstasy (“molly”), GHB, heroin, ketamine, LSD (“acid”), methadone, methamphetamine (“meth”), PCP, prescription drugs, and psilocybin mushrooms (“mushrooms” or “shrooms”).
You can face different charges for the same general activity of selling controlled substances or marijuana. The specific charge is dependent upon the circumstances of the alleged conduct, including what was sold, how much, and the recipient and environment.
In the most serious allegations, prosecutors may charge someone with “operating as a major drug trafficker.”
Experienced Counsel at Every Stage of Your Criminal Case
Whether you have been arrested, are the subject of an investigation, or have been asked to come in for “questioning,” it is highly likely that your future is in jeopardy. A drug trafficking or distribution conviction can bring years or even decades in prison, exorbitant fines, asset forfeiture, and the societal consequences of being a convicted felon. Take a proactive approach and involve a criminal defense team that will stop at nothing to protect you, your career, your assets, and your freedom.
