I Was Pulled Over for Speeding and had Drugs in My Car

What do i do?

If you are pulled over for something simple as speeding, approached by a drug dog, and subsequently searched and arrested you have rights under the 4th Amendment which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Whether you are charged with:

• Interstate drug trafficking
• Simple possession
• Possession with Intent to Distribute or
• Possession of a firearm during commission of a drug offense

We will use our knowledge gained working for the prosecution to work to suppress any evidence illegally obtained.

In some areas officers sit on the side of the highway waiting to stop someone who fits their profile for transporting drugs. We will challenge the reasonable suspicion cited to pull you over as well as the probable cause claimed to conduct a search and fight to have your charge reduced or even dismissed.

Asset Forfeiture

Forfeiture issues commonly arise as part of an Interstate drug arrest. Law enforcement may seize your assets including the car you were driving and your cash, even if you were simply a passenger claiming that they were used in the commission of or with a drug crime or paid for with dirty money.

If you have been pulled over and were suspected of drugs, you should contact a criminal defense attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.
