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 Orton represent individuals with serious drug trafficking charges throughout state and federal courts.

Eric has helped us numerous times. He has been there for us
Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI. So when I was facing legal problems again in 2015 for getting 3 DUI's in a 5 month period due to an addiction to alcohol I knew I needed him to represent me again. Mr. Sebald truly cares about his clients. I met with him we discussed my case and what I was facing. He guided me on what I should do. He doesn't sugar coat things. Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do everything he can to get the best possible outcome. I was facing some pretty serious consequences and through his advice, guidance and representation I not only was able to avoid Jail time but also get help for my problem with alcohol. I truly believe if it weren't for him I would not be where I am today. After hiring Attorney Sebald he traveled to Lycoming county to represent me for my preliminary hearing and sentencing. He called and spoke with the D.A., judges as well as other attorneys in that area. He also represented me here in Erie county for my preliminary hearing as well as sentencing. He does his research. I would strongly recommend Mr Sebald to anyone who needs legal representation.
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 was in a rough spot and Attorney Sebald exceeded my expectations while being fair and upfront about the possible outcomes. I was impressed by his knowledge and navigation of the law, but also by his relationships within that community.
Attorney Sebald did a great job handling my case. I was cited improperly for a traffic accident, and Steve and his partner were able to resolve the situation quickly and with great professionalism.
I would highly recommend Attorney Hackwelder. My case was different than most but he went out of his way to do his research to make sure things went my way. He won the case for me and if I ever need another attorney I will call him again.
Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do everything he can to get the best possible outcome.
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!
Steve has helped us numerous times. He has been there for us when ever we call and made himself available in a moments notice when necessary. He knows just what to do and is also great at dealing with the emotional side of the situation. We trust him completely and would highly recommend Steve.
