New York City Federal Drug Crimes Attorneys
Federal drug crimes defendants face the full force and power of the United States government. Federal criminal court is not a level playing field between defendant and prosecutor. The odds are stacked in favor of the federal drug crimes prosecutors. A defendant who hopes to have any chance of minimizing negative consequences of federal drug crimes prosecution needs to have full faith and confidence in his or her defense lawyer.
Founded in 1996, the Manhattan criminal defense law firm of Goldberg & Allen, LLP offers criminal defense services from two results-driven advocates with decades of New York City criminal law experience. Our attorneys have successfully fought high-profile and high-stakes cases throughout their legal careers. We take professional pride in our reputation for excellence and our ability to provide high-caliber legal representation in federal drug crimes cases.
We appear regularly in New York’s federal courts, including the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (covering Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester and other upstate counties) and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (covering Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau and Suffolk). Contact our law firm to schedule a free consultation with an experienced drug crimes attorney after a federal drug arrest.
Defense Services From Former High-Level Narcotics Bureau Prosecutors
Our two founding partners, Jay K. Goldberg and Gerald Allen, were supervisors in the Major Narcotics Investigation Bureau of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Goldberg rose to the position of first deputy bureau chief, where he set policy, trained prosecutors and police, and approved search warrants.
In our defense work, we regularly use our extensive knowledge of the prosecution’s perspective on drug crimes prosecution strategies, including search warrant procedures, police tactics and limits on police authority, and other issues that may be central to your felony drug charges case.
The Stakes Are High in Federal Drug Crimes Cases
We are available to provide criminal defense services in all manner of federal drug crimes charges, including possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution, and conspiracy.
Minimum mandatory sentences in federal drug crimes convictions are higher than in state drug court convictions. For example, a federal court may impose a 20- to 30-year sentence for a high-level drug offense, whereas a state court might impose a 10-year sentence for a similar type of crime.
Federal drug crimes defendants run a much higher risk of facing serious negative consequences than do state court defendants. Add to this risk the fact that federal court procedures generally favor the prosecution over the defense, and you have a situation where the future is uncertain indeed.
