Defense Against Drug Charges In Queens NY

Our Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Protect You

It’s no secret that America’s been fighting a losing “war against drugs” for decades now. In the process, millions of good people have been dragged into the criminal justice system, and police and prosecutors have honed tactics that wouldn’t even have been legal fifty years ago. It’s a national disgrace.

If you’ve been caught up in the War Against Drugs in Queens, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, P.C., can help untangle your situation and help protect your future. We know that just because you’ve been charged with a drug crime, that doesn’t make you guilty. We fight legal battles based on evidence, and our attorneys specialize in building the right kinds of evidence and rebutting what the other side tries to bring. There’s a lot of ground that the prosecution has to cover as it makes its case, and our firm forces New York prosecutors to prove every assertion.

When we mount a defense in a drug case, we start at the very beginning:

  • What prompted the police to interact with you?
  • Was the stop legal?
  • What do they cite as probable cause for a search?
  • Were there witnesses?
  • What role did those individuals have?
  • Where was the evidence found?
  • Was any testing performed? What kind, and by whom?
  • Were you properly informed of your Miranda rights?

There are dozens of angles to pursue in a drug case, and at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, P.C., we explore them all. But more importantly, our practice focuses on our clients’ needs, developing strategies and an approach to your defense that can meet more than your legal needs. Many of our clients are young people and adults with full lives waiting for them, who may benefit from negotiated resolutions that include treatment programs or similar interventions.

Every case is different, and whatever your circumstances, our attorneys are always ready to fight for you in court. Whether you’ve been charged with possession of a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance, or drug trafficking in Queens, we will mount a vigorous defense of your rights and freedom.

We start by reviewing all the evidence, then asking the court to exclude or suppress evidence that is prejudicial, illegally obtained, or irrelevant to the case at hand. We’ll chip away at the prosecution’s case, and push hard for every concession we can get from them.
