Your Attorney for Facing State and Federal Drug Crimes in Pensacola, FL
Many drug-related crimes can be charged at both the state and federal levels. Federal drug charges are typically considered more serious; however, convictions for both types of drug crimes can lead to substantial prison sentences, heavy fines, and other long-term consequences. As a result, if you are facing drug charges at either level, you need experienced legal representation. You need the Pensacola, FL law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A.
Where to Turn if You’re Facing Possession or Trafficking Charges
State and federal authorities are cracking down hard on drug-related illegal activity. Whether this is your first arrest for possession of a small amount of marijuana or you are facing going back to jail again for your involvement in a large-scale operation, if you are convicted, you can expect to face significant penalties that will affect your freedom, your family, and your ability to find work in the future.
At Michael J. Griffith, P.A., we represent individuals facing all drug crime charges in Florida and throughout the Southeastern United States. This includes:
- Possession of controlled substances
- Trafficking, manufacture, and distribution of controlled substances
- Prescription drug fraud
- Interstate transportation of illegal drugs
- Importation and exportation of illegal drugs
We also provide vigorous defense for other related charges, such as:
- Money laundering
- Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) charges
- Forfeiture of assets relating to alleged drug crimes
We have decades of experience helping defendants throughout the Southeast defeat both state and federal drug charges. One major distinction between state and federal drug crimes is that, unlike state judges, federal judges have very little discretion to lighten your sentence following a conviction. This is not to say that state judges will let you off easy – they almost certainly won’t – but rather that at the federal level in particular you need to prepare yourself for severe punishment if you get convicted. Regardless of your charges, our Pensacola defense attorney will fight tirelessly to help you avoid conviction and preserve your freedom.
Our Pensacola DUI attorney also represents individuals arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit substances.
