Drug Crime Defense New Orleans

In every case - regardless of whether it is a misdemeanor drug possession offense or a federal drug trafficking crime - our goal is to carefully examine the evidence against you to get the most favorable resolution.

We do this by asking:

  • Did the police have the right to pull our client over?
  • Did the police have the right to search our client's home or car?
  • Was your detention illegal?
  • Were you properly read your Miranda rights?
  • Can the government prove drug possession beyond a reasonable doubt?
  • In cases of prescription medication, did you have the authority to possess the drugs?

Sometimes, the answers to these questions can result in evidence being suppressed and charges being dismissed.
