Lawyer in Deland, Florida: Drug Crime Defense
Experienced Representation from a Former Prosecutor
If you have been arrested and charged with violating state or federal drug laws in central Florida, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney, one who has successfully helped others in similar situations. Conviction on a drug charge can have serious consequences, limiting the types of jobs you qualify for and where you can live, in addition to the potential forfeiture of assets, the loss of driving privileges, significant fines and incarceration.
At the office of Donald B. Dempsey, Jr., Attorney at Law, in Deland, I bring over 30 years of experience to men and women in throughout central Florida who have been charged with a drug offense. A former Deland/Daytona Beach prosecutor, I have a comprehensive understanding of the criminal law and procedure in Florida. I have extensive trial experience and will help you work toward the best result, whether through a plea bargain or in court. For a private meeting to discuss your case, contact my office or call me at 386-738-1159.
My Drug Crimes Defense Practice
I handle the defense of a broad range of felony and misdemeanor drug charges, including:
- Possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia
- The sale, distribution or trafficking of controlled substances, including the intent to sell
- The manufacture or cultivation of illegal drugs
I defend cases alleging illegal activity involving marijuana (cannabis), cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamines (meth), heroin and ecstasy, as well as prescription pharmaceuticals such as Xanax, Percocet, Lortab or Hydrocodone. I also handle charges involving steroids.
Protect Your Rights
When you hire me to defend you on a drug charge, I will carefully examine all the facts, circumstances and evidence to determine whether proper procedure was followed as well as the strength of the prosecution’s case. I will review any search or seizure to confirm that your 4th Amendment rights were protected and that there was probable cause for search warrants or other acts. I will also make certain that constitutional safeguards were followed if there were wiretaps or trash pulls, or if critical information came from a confidential source or an anonymous tip.
While I have strong ties to the local community and represent Florida residents in drug prosecutions, I also defend individuals who have been arrested while visiting the state, often during the Daytona 500, Bike Week or spring break.
To schedule a confidential consultation with an experienced Florida criminal defense lawyer, contact me or call me at 386-738-1159. I meet with clients during traditional office hours, and evenings and weekends by appointment. I accept Visa and MasterCard.
