Defenses in Drug Possession Cases
In most narcotics possession cases, law enforcement officers have conducted a search and/or seizure of persons, vehicles or property. Unless the police have obtained a legally valid consent, probable cause that a crime has taken place or a valid search warrant, then a search is a violation of a person's rights protected by the 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution. Criminal defense lawyer Antonio D. Quinn, Esq. conducts a thorough review and investigation of all of the circumstances which led to the arrest of his clients. If criminal lawyer Antonio Quinn discovers that a client of Quinn Law, P.A. has had their rights violated, then he will move to have the evidence thrown out and the charges dismissed.

Drug court is not recommended for everybody and the length of the program as well as the intensity of the supervision varies along with the seriousness of the offense. Your attorney can advise you as to whether drug court is available and advisable for you in your case. To schedule a case evaluation contact Quinn Law, P.A. at (954) 463-0440.
