Florida tries to come down hard on those found guilty of possessing illegal substances. Depending on the type of drugs you are accused of having on your person, you could be facing severe penalties with far-reaching consequences for your future. What you need at this time is a highly-qualified Miami drug crimes defense attorney from our firm who can defend your rights and fight with your best interests in mind.

As a firm with over 40 years of legal experience and considerable recognition, Rothman & Associates, P.A. has the resources necessary to effectively handle your criminal charges from start to finish. We consistently work for the best outcome possible through knowledgeable litigation and aggressive advocacy. With a background as a former prosecutor, I know what it takes to defeat criminal charges.

Understand what You are Facing

You face a host of penalties with drug possession charges including not just jail time, but heavy fines, probation, and the possible loss or suspension of your drivers’ license.

Depending on the type of drugs and the amount, penalties could include:

  • 25 years in prison for 28 grams of prescription drugs
  • 3 years in prison and $50,000 in fines for 28 grams of cocaine
  • At least 1 year in jail and $1,000 in fines for 20 grams or less of marijuana
  • At least 5 years in jail and a $5,000 fine for possession of over 20 grams of marijuana

No matter the details of your drug charges, you have rights as the accused—rights that our Miami criminal defense lawyer can fight to protect. Four decades of experience has taught us how to handle and outwork prosecutors. It helps you that I have been a prosecutor.

We are Tough When it Comes to Possession Charges

How “possession” is defined by the state can make it tricky to prove beyond reasonable doubt you are guilty of your drug charges. You need to know such drugs you are accused of possessing existed and were close at hand, even if they were not found on your person. In addition, how law enforcement came upon the drugs can be thoroughly scrutinized: if they proceeded in some way which violated your Fourth Amendment protections against illegal searches and seizures in some way, our Miami drug crime attorney can use this to try and have your case thrown out.

Our firm has a track-record of upholding our clients’ rights—do not wait to reach out to Rothman & Associates, P.A. to begin building an effective legal defense.
