Effective Drug Crime Defense
Trafficking and many other charges carry mandatory prison time upon conviction. Possession of methamphetamine — even one rock of crack cocaine, even a first offense — can result in a mandatory sentence of 5 to 15 years. Early intervention by a qualified criminal defense lawyer can be critical. Your phone may already be tapped. You may be talking to undercover officers or confidential informants without knowing it. The prosecution can use anything you say against you.
Mr. Suzuki takes immediate steps to protect your rights and attack the prosecution's case. He examines every facet of the investigation, the arrest and the search and seizure. Did they have probable cause for the warrants or wiretap? Did they exceed the scope of the warrant? Is the government's informant reliable or willing to say anything to help his or her own cause? Do the amount of drugs and the circumstances warrant intent to sell or trafficking charges? Were you read your Miranda rights? Coerced into involuntary confession?
Our number one concern is to help our clients avoid prison and allow them to return to their lives and loved ones. First offenders on possession charges may be eligible for diversion (including TASC drug treatment, random testing and monitoring) to avoid a criminal record. This opportunity is usually available just once.
If you have prior convictions or face more serious drug crimes, we prepare for trial but always probe for holes in the prosecution's case to expand your options. We exhaust every strategy to get charges dismissed, evidence suppressed or to find bargaining chips to downgrade charges or negotiate lesser sentences.
