Defense Strategies for Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs or Distribution of Drugs

There are many strategies for defending a charge of Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs or Distribution of Drugs. Although each case is unique, The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz, Scott Bradley & Kenneth Diesenhof have many years of experience and no matter what the circumstances are in your case, we are prepared to protect your rights.

We may file a motion to:

  • Dismiss for lack of probable cause.
  • Suppress evidence obtained through an illegal search and seizure.

And, if the police failed to read your Miranda rights or to refrain from questioning once you asked for an attorney, I am prepared to protect you from statements you made to the police in any custodial situation.

We may also file a motion for Pre-Trial Diversion or 111E for a Drug Dependent Person or negotiate with the District Attorney to reduce the charge to straight possession.

We may even negotiate a Continuation without a Finding (CWOF), which means that you will not lose your driver’s license.
