Manhattan Drug Crimes Lawyer

Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending Clients Charges with Drug Related Crimes throughout New York City

For years, New York had some of the strictest drug laws in the nation, with mandatory minimum sentences even for relatively low-level offenses.

New York drug laws are still tough, but today judges have more discretion and sentencing options, such as judicial diversion. There is more opportunity for lawyers to negotiate with prosecutors. To achieve a positive outcome, however, you need a criminal defense attorney experienced with fighting drug charges by your side.

Suppression of Evidence

Whether you have been charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana or trafficking large quantities of cocaine, cases involving drugs revolve around the evidence. Attorney Craig Trainor has been successful in getting drug crime cases dismissed against his clients.

How did the police obtain the evidence against you? A thorough review of the facts of the case may reveal that the evidence was obtained through an illegal search and seizure. We will investigate to determine:

  • Was a search warrant issued?
  • If so, was it properly issued?
  • If evidence was found in a vehicle, did police have probable cause to make the stop?
  • Is the substance really what the state alleges it to be?
  • Was the evidence handled correctly or were there chain of custody errors?
  • Were confessions or admissions obtained illegally?

You will decide whether to accept a plea arrangement or go to trial.
