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.

I truly appreciate all that Steve and his team did to resolve this positively for me.

Against my better judgement, I took the advice of Stephen and pled guilty for a reduced sentence. Because I listened to his expert advice, I will serve NO prison time, NO jail time, and my fine was minimal. Thanks again Stephen for a tough uphill battle, and you never gave up.
