In all drug crime cases, it is important to retain a lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. Law enforcement is under a lot of pressure to reduce drug-related crimes and the result is often questionable police tactics and overzealous prosecution. Protection against illegal searches and seizures are crucial in many drug cases.

At Gilman & Associates, P.A., we ensure that our clients are not victims of an unfair criminal justice system. We thoroughly investigate each case, examining the evidence and the police procedure. If your constitutional rights were violated, we will argue for the suppression of evidence and/or the dismissal of the charges. We have a great deal of experience and success in having cases dismissed due to our ability to get evidence excluded that was obtained illegally and in violation of a client's constitutional rights.

Call our firm as soon as possible after your arrest. We may be able to prevent charges from being filed. We have 24-hour answering services, and offer jail visits and bond hearing representation. Please call 954-763-3453 or 954-763-3453 to schedule a consultation with our Fort Lauderdale drug crime defense attorneys.

Holding Law Enforcement Officers Accountable For Their Actions

We have experience with cases involving all types of controlled substances such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, meth, heroin, Ecstasy and prescription drugs such as OxyContin, oxycodone, Vicodin and Lorazepam. Our drug crimes defense practice includes state and federal drug crime charges:

  • Possession
  • Distribution
  • Trafficking
  • Cultivation or manufacturing
  • Prescription drug crimes

In many drug cases, the alleged offender's rights are violated by issues such as illegal search and seizure or lack of probable cause. We know how to uncover these issues and use them to our clients' advantage. Any evidence gathered by improper police procedure may be suppressed, which may lead to the reduction or dismissal of the charges.

One of the roles of defense counsel is to make sure that the government and law enforcement play by the rules and do not violate your constitutional rights in the process of arresting you or attempting to have you convicted of a crime. Law enforcement cannot commit a crime to solve a crime. We make sure that your rights are protected every step of the way and fight to ensure that the state cannot use evidence that may have been obtained illegally.

In certain situations, including first-time offenses, we can often work out treatment options instead of a jail sentence. We can negotiate with the prosecutor for alternative sentences such as diversionary programs and drug treatment and rehabilitation programs. We make sure that if our clients have a problem, that problem is taken care of to the best of our ability.
