Drug Trafficking

Attorneys Fighting Charges of Drug Trafficking in Detroit, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, and Throughout Michigan

Felony drug trafficking charges carry harsh penalties, and police and prosecutors reserve these accusations for suspects considered the worst sale and distribution offenders. Anyone under investigation for a federal or state drug trafficking charge should contact an attorney immediately. If you or someone you know has already been charged with drug trafficking, secure an aggressive Michigan criminal defense team.

Drug Sale and Distribution Charges in Michigan

Our experienced lawyers represent clients accused of federal drug charges and major felony offenses, along with all other drug-related charges including:

We know the damaging effects a drug charge conviction could have on you, and we’re here to help you earn your freedom. Our team has extensive knowledge in drug trafficking charges and will aggressively work to get you an outstanding result in your Michigan case.

Severe Penalties for Drug Possession in Michigan

Drug trafficking cases often deal with large amounts of illegal narcotics. The state of Michigan has extremely serious punishments for possessing large amounts of an illicit substance, and you could face a lengthy jail term without an excellent attorney. If you are in possession of even 25 grams of a drug such as ecstasy, LSD, cocaine, or peyote you could face 4 years in prison and a fine of $25,000. Larger amounts can result in life imprisonment and fines of as much as a million dollars. If prosecutors can prove you intended to distribute an illicit substance, criminal penalties could be even greater.

Additionally, according to the Michigan Penal Code (333.7413), if you have been previously convicted of a drug possession, delivery, or trafficking charge, any subsequent drug offense will result in life imprisonment with no chance for probation, suspended sentencing, or parole. If you are facing drug trafficking charges, it is essential that you contact our drug crime defense team. We will aggressively work to protect you from Michigan’s serious drug crime penalties.

Under Investigation for Drug Trafficking in Michigan

If you are being questioned about drug importation or trafficking, don’t wait to call an attorney. Hiring a lawyer does not make you appear guilty, and oftentimes results in charges never being filed. We offer exceptional pre-file drug charge services, and our lawyers will work with you to defend against aggressive police and prosecutors.

Drug Trafficking Lawyer in Michigan

By working with a lawyer before your arrest, you can ensure you are protected from drug trafficking charges. Police and prosecutors will relentlessly investigate you and try to get you to say exactly what they need to hear to put you behind bars. Our attorneys can look at all possible case outcomes and speak on your behalf to ensure you constantly progress towards the most beneficial result.

Police and prosecutors are actively building a case against you if you have been investigated on any Michigan drug trafficking charge. The pre-file stage is one of the most dangerous for someone accused of drug trafficking, as police have the best chance of gathering evidence and forcing you to incriminate yourself. We can focus on retaliating against aggressive investigations, and launch your defense before charges are filed. Police and prosecutors will rethink their case the second you start working with an attorney, and you will be protected from unfair investigative tactics.
