Drug Trafficking Lawyer in Miami
What should I expect when I've been charged with drug trafficking?
Defendants in cases involving any drug charges, but particularly trafficking, face harsh penalties and mandatory minimum prison sentences if convicted in our state. Lead attorney David Seltzer at our firm, Seltzer Law, P.A. has a "Superb" rating from Avvo, an honor he earned through the tenacity and creativity that he applies to every case he defends.
Our state is considered a gateway for drug trafficking into our country, so the legal ramifications of such a charge are extreme. You'll want someone with years of experience and knowledge at your side in the courtroom. Penalties vary depending upon the amount and type of controlled substance you are accused of trafficking, but one common theme is that you will almost certainly face prison time and have a felony on your record if convicted. A common misconception is that in order to be charged with drug trafficking, you must have transported a large amount of the substance over state or national lines, or made huge and frequent sales of the drug. In reality, however, the only factor differentiating between a charge of simple possession and one of trafficking is the quantity of the substance involved.
