Drug Charges Arising from Traffic Stops
Drug arrests arising from traffic stop are not always conducted legally. This can make the stop itself fail to hold up under scrutiny in a court of law. Police officers often stop a motorist on an unrelated issue, such as speeding or a non-functional brake light. The officer may then ask to search your vehicle. However, probable cause is needed to do that. Unfortunately, most drivers consent to a search without knowing they have the option to refuse. If you refused consent to such a search and the officer performed one anyway, you should contact an attorney at once. If your passenger had drugs in the vehicle without your knowledge leading to your arrest, we will fight to have the charges dismissed.
Challenging the Prosecution
By challenging the prosecution at every turn, we provide a strong and consistent defense. We will examine if the police had a legal reason to pull you over, if you were coerced into making a confession, or if an unreliable informant was involved in your arrest. These factors can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
