Contact an aggressive Palm Beach Gardens drug offense attorney today to ensure that you have someone to speak up for you and stand up for your rights.
I am William Wallshein, a South Florida criminal defense attorney with over 29 years of experience representing those charged with all kinds of drug offenses. Drug crimes are some of the most common charges I deal with on a daily basis. Having spent 5 years working for the state prosecutor’s office, I know how the government handles drug possession and distribution cases. With this knowledge, I am able to put together strong defenses for my clients.Florida Law Enforcement Takes All Drug Crimes Seriously
In Florida, any drug charge is serious. Whether the charge is categorized as a misdemeanor or a felony, the consequences can be devastating. For example, a first-time conviction for possession of even a small amount of a controlled substance can result in:
- A prison sentence;
- Substantial monetary fines; and
- Suspension of driving privileges
Keep in mind that simple possession charges are generally the least severe. If you have been charged with distribution, manufacture, or possession with intent to distribute, the penalties can be considerably worse.
I understand the severity of these punishments and the potential damage they can cause in my clients’ lives. To prevent the imposition of these harsh penalties, I prepare strong defenses to all drug charges, including those involving:
- Prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking
- Misdemeanor possession charges
- Juvenile drug offenses
The consequences of a drug crime conviction in Florida can be devastating. But don’t lose hope. As an experienced Florida defense attorney, I have been able to convince the prosecution to lower the charges to a less serious offense or even drop the charges entirely in many cases. This is especially the case for first-time offenders involved with small amounts of illegal substances.
If the evidence against you is strong, and neither negotiation nor dismissal are realistic options, I will develop the strongest defense available, and take your case to trial. I have significant trial experience in both state and federal court, in front of both judges and juries, and can present a convincing case to mitigate the charges and the resulting sentence.Fight Your Drug Charges Today
