Nashville Drug Trafficking Lawyer
Do you need a criminal defense lawyer to fight drug trafficking charges?
With hefty fines, jail time and vehicle confiscation on the line, drug trafficking convictions can have a dramatic and lasting impact on your future.
If you or a family member are facing drug trafficking charges in Middle Tennessee, you need an experienced criminal lawyer to immediately begin preparing your defense against these serious allegations.
Our lawyers will help you develop an aggressive defense strategy
At the Nashville law firm of Raybin & Weissman, our criminal defense lawyers understand how serious drug trafficking charges are—and the severe penalties that come along with them. With more than 100 years of combined legal experience, we have extensive knowledge of drug laws and insight into area prosecutors and judges. We will help you understand your charges, the penalties you face and your best defense options.
Our criminal defense team will carefully examine your case to find any information that may be used in your defense, including:
- Illegally obtained evidence
- Illegal searches
- Deviations from proper police procedures during the investigation
- Infringements upon your rights during or after your arrest
Information gained during our investigation will be used to apply pressure on the prosecution’s case during plea negotiations or in a courtroom trial. From beginning to end, we will fight to have your charges reduced or dismissed—or limit the damage caused by a conviction. Throughout the process, our attentive lawyers will provide updates on the outlook of your case and keep you informed of any changes.
We protect your rights against vehicle or property confiscation
In many state and federal drug cases, you not only face criminal charges but also stand to lose substantial property—motor vehicles, real estate, even cash—in a separate civil proceeding. This is based on the assumption your property represents proceeds from illegal drug sales, or that it was used in connection with a controlled substance offense. You may have even been stopped at a drug checkpoint and had cash or other property confiscated.
Our lawyers have achieved favorable results in many drug interdiction cases based on traffic stops in the Interstate 40 corridor between Memphis and Nashville. In some cases, we are able to prove that the traffic stop was defective based on the failure of the officers operating the checkpoint to conduct stops and searches in a constitutionally permissible manner.
In other cases, we can demonstrate that racial profiling played an important role in the decision to target a particular vehicle for law enforcement attention. Our understanding of drug interdiction and civil forfeiture processes represents a significant advantage for you in recovering confiscated cash, an impounded vehicle or other property.
No matter what your situation or the charges you face, our dedicated criminal lawyers will work tirelessly to build your defense and protect your rights.
