For decades, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the United States have made the policing of drug crimes a top priority.
As a result, when they are not represented by a qualified drug lawyer, many individuals who have caused no harm to others through their personal activities have nevertheless been aggressively targeted by police and prosecutors for punishments that are often far out of proportion to the actual crimes that have been committed.
While most drug crimes do not directly harm others in the same way that assault or homicide might, the penalties for these types of crimes are often nonetheless equally severe. As a result, we at Del Prado Law believe it is important that those who are accused of drug crimes have knowledgeable legal counsel to defend their rights and interests under the law. With such support, many people facing drug crimes are able to escape the severe penalties associated with these crimes.
