New York City Prescription Drug Crimes

Drug Crime Defense Lawyer in Queens

Prescription drugs can be just as addictive and just as destructive to a person's life as street drugs. These are dangers faced by athletes or anyone who is seriously injured and needs relief from physical pain. Many have become addicted or unable to function without a drug that they initially were prescribed. Selling prescription medications to those who are desperate to support an addiction is very profitable business.

Anyone who has been accused of committing a prescription drug crime should be aware that without the assistance of a New York City drug crime attorney you face the possibility of a permanent record as a convicted felon. The penalties for these crimes can include years in state prison as part of the punishment. Our early involvement in the case can allow for negotiations to take place to protect your future and your freedom.

We represent the rights of those charged with any offense involving prescription drugs, throughout all of New York, including Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.

NY Law Enforcement Cracking Down on Prescription Drug Crimes

These drugs, such as Oxycodone, Percocet, Ritalin, Xanax and others are easily obtained through a variety of illegal methods, including "backdoor pharmacies," internet sources, and on the street. Prescription forgery, doctor shopping and illegal importation can be involved in a prescription drug crime, often leading to federal drug charges. Law enforcement and prosecutors are only focused on evidence, proof of guilt, getting a confession and a conviction.
