Drug Trafficking

Capable Drug Trafficking Attorneys Defend Federal Cases in Franklin and Columbia

Aggressive defense in high-stakes drug manufacture and distribution cases

Drug interdiction is governed by state and federal law. Simple possession and limited exchanges of illicit drugs fall under state jurisdiction, while the federal government claims authority over trafficking in large amounts of controlled substances, especially across state lines. For more than 20 years, effective defense attorneys from the Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates have managed complex, high-stakes cases in federal court. Our firm has the experience and skill to present your best defense.

Skilled drug trafficking and distribution defense lawyers

Federal drug crimes differ from state offenses in several important ways:

  • Elite investigation by special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • Highly professional prosecution by attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice  (DoJ)
  • Strict, demanding judges in the federal court system
  • Hard-to-defend charges such as conspiracy and racketeering
  • Severe punishments mandated in federal sentencing guidelines

With so much stacked against you, you need a criminal defense lawyer who has tried complex felony crimes. Attorneys at Altshuler & Associates know federal law and criminal procedure. We’ve dealt with the DoJ’s prosecutorial tactics. We’re experienced in the federal court system, which has jurisdiction over Franklin, Spring Hill, Columbia, Brentwood, Lawrenceburg, Murfreesboro and Pulaski, TN.

Fighting federal drug conspiracy charges in middle Tennessee

The crime of conspiracy has given defense lawyers problems since it came into use in the early 20th century. To charge conspiracy, the prosecution must only demonstrate that there was an agreement between two or more people to break the law in the future, and one of those persons performed a single act (which could be perfectly legal) that arguably advanced the plan to eventually do something criminal. So, in theory, two people could commit the crime of conspiracy without ever committing a criminal act. If you are charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs, the Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates is prepared to defend you zealously in federal court.
