Defending You Against Drug Crime Accusations

The penalties for drug crimes are extremely severe. You could be facing felony charges, forced to pay exorbitant crimes and possibly spend a significant amount of time in jail. The penalties you face could depend upon the type of drug alleged, the amount of the drug the arresting officer claims you possessed and whether there are accusations of manufacture or distribution of the drug. When facing federal charges, prosecutors may wish to impose the stiffest sentence.

When representing you, LaVelle Law & Associates, P.C., in Long Island, will provide you with an aggressive defense. As a former prosecutor, lawyer William LaVelle understands the tactics that state or federal attorneys will take when pursuing charges.
