Drug Trafficking Attorneys in Miami
Dedicated to Helping You Get the Results You Need
In the state of Florida, drug trafficking is prosecuted aggressively and penalized severely. Drug trafficking laws have made it illegal to sell, transport, or illegally import unlawful controlled substances. In fact, an individual may be charged with drug trafficking even if they were just found to be in possession of a significant amount of drugs. Being convicted of this felony offense will typically result in a mandatory minimum prison sentence; however, it is not uncommon for defendants to receive life in prison for trafficking or possessing large quantities of drugs.
You can be charged with drug trafficking if you are found in possession of at least:
- 28 grams of cocaine
- One gram of LSD (acid)
- Seven grams of oxycodone
- 25 pounds of cannabis

Defenses to Drug Trafficking Charges
There is a wide variety of effective defenses to drug trafficking charges, including evidence suppression, the entrapment defense, youthful offender sentencing, and substantial assistance. As an American citizen, you have the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. If, at any point during your arrest, your rights were violated, our attorneys can work to suppress any evidence that was illegally obtained. Entrapment refers to when law enforcement officers, usually during a sting operation, coerce defendants into committing a crime they would never have committed otherwise. This is illegal.
The defense of “youthful offender” is only able to be used when the defendant is younger than 21 years old. If they are, the judge may decide to agree to sentence that individual as a youthful offender. In doing so, this allows the judge to disregard the minimum sentencing guidelines, thereby allowing for a more lenient sentence. Another effective defense is substantial assistance. This can be used to convert the defendant into an informant for the government in order to arrest people higher up in the criminal operation.
