Nevada Drug Trafficking Defense Attorneys
If charged with drug distribution, trafficking or smuggling, you could face a wide range of criminal penalties. Depending on a number of factors, including the amount and classification of the narcotics, the location of the crime and your criminal history, you could face years in prison.
For instance, federal laws carry mandatory sentences of five years or more in prison for trafficking heroin, cocaine and other hard drugs. Additionally, you may face civil forfeiture actions, in which the government seizes property it claims was acquired by profits from drug-related activity.
Our attorneys have extensive experience fighting drug charges in state and federal criminal courts. Our familiarity with relevant case law, sentencing guidelines and police procedure allows us to provide skillful legal counsel to people who have been charged with drug crimes in Nevada.
