Federal Drug Charges

Drug Attorney in San Diego

Experienced, Aggressive and Smart

Federal drug charges carry serious consequences, which can include mandatory minimum sentences. If you are convicted of a federal drug crime, you can be sent to federal prison, ordered to pay large fines, lose your property, such as a vehicle or house, or lose licensing, citizenship or immigration privileges or status. Many of these penalties can have a negative effect on your family.

If you have been charged with a federal drug crime, get the help of an experienced, aggressive attorney who knows exactly how federal cases work and how to defend people who are accused. The attorneys of Conforti & Turner can represent you in cases involving:

  • Possession with intent to distribute cocaine, marijuana or other controlled substances
  • Transportation of drugs across state lines
  • Drug trafficking or importation — charges that often involve alleged activity over the border with Mexico
  • Related conspiracy charges
  • Mandatory sentencing guidelines, also known as mandatory minimums

Understanding the Process, Challenging the Prosecution

Drug-related crimes are prosecuted in either federal court or state court based on a number of factors. When immigration, border patrol, FBI, ATF or other federal agencies are involved in a case, federal charges may come into play.

Federal prosecutors must follow the law in prosecuting you, and law enforcement officials must follow the law in making arrests and collecting evidence. We understand the laws that govern how evidence is gained and used, and we can use this knowledge to your advantage. For example, if law enforcement used an unlawful search and seizure, we can work to have the charges dismissed.
