Fight To Avoid The Cost Of Drug Crimes

Drug crimes cover a wide variety of charges from simple possession of marijuana to manufacturing and distributing large quantities of drugs. Keep in mind that the potential consequences for drug offenses include more than fines and jail time. Depending on the charge, it could seriously affect your employment opportunities, scholarships or grants, housing opportunities, ability to adopt and the right to possess firearms.

If you or a loved one has been arrested or is facing any drug charges, Cruz & Bano, P.A., in Orlando can fight for you. We embrace an aggressive approach that relies heavily on motions to suppress the evidence to defend you, working to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed.

We Will Attack The Evidence They Use Against You

It is important to talk to an aggressive criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the legal ways to attack the evidence that has been gathered against you. Typical defense tools we use include whether:

  • The prosecutor can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were in actual or constructive control over the drugs
  • Your Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures was violated
  • Your Fifth Amendment Miranda rights were violated
  • The stop was illegal
  • There was any police misconduct or errors
  • You had the requisite intent
  • The police had probable cause to make an arrest
  • The police had reasonable suspicion to make a stop
  • There is any laboratory testing or toxicology errors or mistakes
  • There are any witnesses or informants testifying against you
  • There is enough evidence for the prosecutor to successfully prosecute you
  • The search warrant was legally sufficient and whether it was properly executed
  • You were entrapped by the police
