New York Drug Crimes

Aggressive defense attorneys serving Bronx and throughout New York

When you have been arrested for a drug crime, it can seem as if there is no way out. Perhaps the police found drugs in your car. Now you’re in handcuffs and you have made incriminating statements to law enforcement. You know that New York’s drug laws carry severe punishments, and you are appropriately fearful of going to jail. However, even in situations as dire as this, there are defenses available to you. You can challenge the legality of the stop. You can seek to get your confession thrown out. You can beat your charges. You can win, and the attorneys at Peter J. Schaffer can show you how.  If your case is not appropriate for trial, we will zealously seek the most favorable disposition of the charges available.

Relentless defenders of your rights

Our attorneys are dedicated to providing aggressive legal representation for people charged with drug-related offenses in New York. We have defended clients accused of all types of state and federal drug crimes, including:

  • Criminal Sale of Controlled Substances
  • Drug possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Manufacturing of illegal substances
  • Conspiracy to sell drugs
  • Sale of illegal substances in a school zone
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

Your constitutional rights are our top priority, and we are committed to analyzing every aspect of your case to find defenses against the accusations. We are not afraid to ask the tough questions that will get results for you:

  • Did the police have a legal reason to pull you over or search you?
  • Did a police officer coerce you into making a confession?
  • Was an informant involved in your arrest?

The answers to these questions can make all the difference in the outcome of your case, and decide whether you will be spending your nights in a prison cell or with your family at home. By challenging the prosecution at every turn, we provide the best defense for your money. By treating our clients with the utmost respect, we ensure that you are heard and that your rights are not disregarded.

How to defend yourself against the police

Every good drug defense begins with a good client, and a good client is one who is well-informed. Here are three pieces of important and useful information to remember when you are dealing with the police:

  • Do not say anything. If they ask you questions, ask for a lawyer immediately.
  • Do not consent to a search. Unless police officers have a warrant or probable cause, they have no authority to search you, your home, your car or your personal belongings. They can, however, ask for your consent to search. Just say no.
  • Remain calm. It is always best to stay calm and be polite when dealing with the police. Getting a police officer angry at you never produces positive results.
