Orlando, Florida Cocaine Charge Defense Strategies

Defenses to cocaine charges often hinge on search and seizure issues:

  • Did the police have a legal reason to stop you?
  • Did the police have probable cause to search your vehicle?
  • If the drugs were seized in your home or apartment, did the police have valid search warrant?

As former prosecutors, we are highly experienced at identifying search and seizure issues that could result in suppression of the cocaine evidence. Without evidence, the charges could be dropped.

You may also be eligible for first-offender treatment that could resolve the charges without a conviction.
