Drug trafficking and drug distribution cases are prosecuted in state and federal court. Because the penalties are so serious, even for a first-time offense, it crucial to have an aggressive drug trafficking defense attorney on your side. Repeat offenders face even harsher sentences if found guilty of these types of serious drug crimes. The penalties and punishments for drug trafficking vary according to a variety of factors including the type of narcotic and the amount of the substance possessed.
Investigations for drug crimes target not just individuals, but also groups working together. Many of these federal and state investigations use wiretaps and other electronic surveillance, as well as confidential informants and undercover officers in elaborate sting operations. Law enforcement officers with the state or federal government may already have wiretap recordings, video surveillance, and statements made by informants to use against you.
If you are already under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), then act quickly to seek advice from our experienced criminal defense attorneys. The aggressive drug trafficking defense attorneys at Sebald, Hackwelder, & Knox represent individuals with serious drug trafficking charges throughout state and federal courts.

Stephen is a very knowledgeable lawyer! I got a DUI with a BAC of 2.16 and walked away with only 6 months probation and didn't lose my license! I can't thank this man enough! Thank you Stephen for all the hard work you put into my case!

Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI.

I was charged with theft by extortion, a 3rd degree felony which carries a possible sentence of 7 years in prison and 15,000 in fines.

I received a speeding ticket while traveling through Erie, PA. Steve and his expert team took care of everything while I was 600 miles away in North Carolina. He greatly reduced my conviction and fines. Valerie on his team took the time to hand-hold me through the process. I truly appreciate all that Steve and his team did to resolve this positively for me.
I hired Eric for someone who was facing serious felony charges. He is a fairly young man with a young child who he absolutely adores. He had made mistakes and I didn't feel he needed to go to jail and be separated from that child. Eric was extremely helpful and actually, you could tell that he took this case personally because of all of the time and effort he put into the case. He was always available to us and his family. When it came time for the sentencing we all thought he was going to jail. When the judge sentenced him to 3 years parole we were all extremely happy. I can not say enough good things to say about Eric.
