New York Federal Drug Charges Lawyer

Manhattan Federal Drug Crimes Defense Attorney Representing Clients in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County

There has been a sea change in the thinking about federal sentencing for drug crimes. Recent research shows that long sentences do not have the intended effect. Addiction treatment and rehabilitation create better outcomes and less recidivism.

More Options for Defendants

The change in attitudes means there are now more options for defendants facing federal drug charges. Instead of strict adherence to mandatory minimum sentences, there are now more opportunities to negotiate a plea or secure a downward departure from a mandatory sentence.

In today’s environment, it is more important than ever to retain an attorney who is as skilled in negotiation as he is at trial.

Federal drug attorney Craig Trainor has the full complement of skills and experience you need when you are going up against the awesome power of the federal government on drug charges. As a former prosecutor and a former law clerk to a federal judge, he understands how to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

At The Trainor Law Firm, P.C., we focus on Federal criminal defense and defend clients faced with federal drug charges, including:

You can rely on us whether you have been charged with a federal drug crime involving heroin, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription drugs, or any other controlled substance.

Working Toward a Dismissal

Federal drug crime defense attorney Craig Trainor will explore all avenues of defense. In all drug-related cases, he will study the evidence against you to determine whether you are the victim of a malicious informer or an illegal search and seizure.

If there are potential problems with the manner in which the evidence was obtained or handled, he will file a pre-trial motion to suppress the evidence against you. Success in such a motion means the evidence against you cannot be used in court. Without evidence, the charges are usually dismissed because of the extreme difficulty in proving the case against you.

Fighting for You at Trial

If a court finds that the evidence against you is admissible at trial, Mr. Trainor will prepare for trial while simultaneously working to achieve fair plea and sentencing agreements, if that is in your best interest. If the case goes to trial, he will identify and exploit the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. Throughout the process, you can rely on our legal team for quality legal representation, straightforward advice, and personal service.
