Our familiarity with the legal and tactical strategies involved in defending state or federal drug charges can help you resolve your legal problems on favorable terms ranging from dismissal of the charges, a generous plea agreement, or acquittal at trial.
The attorneys at Makofka and Makofka practice in both State and Federal Courts. They have defended clients facing severe federal drug possession, drug distribution, and drug conspiracy charges. Our criminal defense attorneys use several methods to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the best possible outcome. This approach to Federal and State drug crimes begins with the attempt to suppress the evidence of the charges against you on constitutional grounds.
Representing Your Constitutional Rights in Florida
Examples of the procedural steps in a drug prosecution that can support a motion to suppress incriminating evidence are lack of reasonable suspicion for a traffic stop, lack of probable cause for an arrest, insufficient information in the affidavits submitted to support a search warrant, or mistakes in the execution of the warrant and seizure of evidence.
Our ability to recognize deficiencies in each of these steps can result in the dismissal or reduction of the charges against you, in either the state or federal system. Law enforcement officers, both state and federal, are human and can make mistakes. These mistakes can many times lead to a violation of your constitutional rights.
