Effective Drug Crimes Defense From An Experienced Attorney

As a major drug trafficking corridor, Florida has tough drug crime laws and law enforcement has eyes and ears everywhere. A drug arrest is frightening but it does not mean that you will be convicted. You are presumed innocent under the law and Florida's drug enforcement statute has been challenged for overstepping the constitutional rights of citizens.

The rights of the accused are strongest when backed by an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Carroll L. McCauley III has practiced law in northern Florida since 1998, defending many people charged with drug offenses. Our legal team works vigorously to spare clients from the worst consequences of drug crime allegations.

We Seek Wise And Practical Solutions

We represent people charged with all drug-related crimes in state court, including:

  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of cocaine, heroin and other controlled substances
  • Unlawful possession of prescription narcotics
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug trafficking and importation

We will examine all potential defenses to avoid a conviction or minimize the penalties. Drug arrests often stem from warrantless search and seizure, racial or ethnic profiling, shady informants or essentially random traffic stops.

A Vigorous Defense Of Your Freedom And Your Future

We understand that the stakes are extremely high, with the possibility of prison and a felony record merely for possessing a certain quantity of drugs. Be aware, however, that prosecutors often overstate drug possession charges, mischaracterizing them as dealing or trafficking.

To really understand the strategies and the processes involved in the criminal defense system, you will want to rely on an attorney who has been down this road many, many times before. Mr. McCauley is a veteran courtroom lawyer who is prepared to take your case to trial if you are not a candidate for a diversionary program or plea agreement.

He can advise you intelligently and wisely so you know what your legal options really are and which ones best fit your circumstances. You will rest easier knowing that you can depend on his experienced legal judgment during this time.

Moreover, Mr. McCauley can work to ensure your fair treatment by the criminal defense system. You will know when an offered deal is fair or not given the circumstances of your case.
