Tampa Drug Crime Lawyer

Former prosecutors experienced in state and federal court

Florida is a major entry point for drug traffic in the U.S. and a front in the war on drugs. For that reason, Florida authorities can be quite zealous in their prosecution of drug crimes. Drug charges are also different from most crimes, because in most cases, the prosecution does not have to prove intent; the mere presence of the drugs is often enough to convict. So, if you’ve been arrested on drug charges, you need experienced defense representation from Tampa drug crime lawyers who understand the law and how to attack the prosecution’s case against you. At The Matassini Law Firm, P.A., our defense attorneys are former prosecutors. We know how to challenge police procedures, including illegal searches and seizures. We put forth a vigorous defense, exploring every possible avenue to your best possible result.

The federal Controlled Substances Act covers a wide range of illegal drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin, as well as prescription medicines and painkillers such as Morphine, Codeine, Percocet, Oxycontin and Oxycodone when bought or sold without a valid prescription. The penalties for conviction of a drug offense differ depending upon factors such as the type of drug and amount involved, the defendant’s criminal history, whether any force or weapons were involved, and more. In conjunction with the federal sentencing guidelines, punishments can exceed a million dollars in fines and decades in federal prison.

The state of Florida also has its own controlled substances law, which is very similar to the federal law in many respects. Florida criminal law also contains tough mandatory minimum sentences and habitual offender laws that can result in very long prison sentences for convicted offenders.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
