Let Our Experience Work For You
To be charged with drug trafficking, a person needs to be in possession of a large amount of a controlled substance — generally exceeding 10 pounds in weight. Drug trafficking is different from selling drugs, distribution or possession with intent to distribute. It is often prosecuted in federal court.
Get Legal Representation Right Away
A drug trafficking conviction can get you locked up in jail or prison for years, and it can cause irreparable damage to your career and your family. If you or a loved one has been charged with a state or federal crime related to moving a significant amount of drugs, you need legal representation right away.
At Besen Law, based in Asheville, North Carolina, we know how to handle even the most serious drug cases. Attorney Ted Besen is not only a criminal defense lawyer; he is a former police officer with unique insight into law enforcement methods regarding drug matters.
How Do You Defend Someone Accused Of Trafficking?
Many drug trafficking cases are defendable. If you have been charged with moving drugs, we can develop a customized defense strategy that may include:
- Investigating “reasonable suspicion” with regard to the search and seizure that led to your arrest
- Challenging a traffic stop and the “probable cause” that allegedly led a law enforcement officer to pull you over
- Working with the prosecution to discuss options that can mitigate your sentence
Our firm understands the difficulty that comes with an arrest and the fear of incarceration. We are here to help you reach the best possible outcome in your case.
