State and Federal Drug Trafficking

Regardless of whether you have been charged with drug distribution at the state level or you are the subject of a federal indictment, you need a criminal defense attorney with a history of handling and winning drug cases, large and small. State and federal drug offenses can carry decades of imprisonment and not all criminal defense lawyers are familiar with the nuances of these cases. Among the types of cases that Boston attorney Halpern handles for his clients are:

  • Federal and state drug trafficking offenses
  • Narcotics distribution
  • Armed drug trafficking
  • Importation of illicit substances
  • Money Laundering
  • Drug Manufacturing
  • Cultivation of Illegal Substances
  • Prescription Drug Crimes

There are many ways in which drug charges can be fought. Attorney Halpern has a track record of achieving dismissals based on motions to suppress illegal searches of homes and cars. He has successfully challenged law enforcement's interpretation of wiretapped phone calls. In federal cases, where the Government has enormous resources and typically brings cases that involve wiretaps, surveillance video, informants, and hand-to-hand buys with undercover agents, it is critical to have an attorney with expertise in the complexities of federal sentencing. Navigating the federal sentencing guidelines to achieve the best possible outcome is an art that demands skill and experience. Attorney Halpern has achieved some of the largest downward departures from the federal sentencing guidelines over the past 20 years.
