Federal Drug Crimes

The federal government often works for years and spends extensive resources investigating and building a federal drug case. Immediate involvement of a federal criminal defense lawyer in Mississippi can sometimes help you avoid indictment or get reduced sentencing.

Federal drug laws pertain to the possession, distribution, sale, trafficking, cultivation, and manufacturing of various controlled substances. These drugs include marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, BZP, methamphetamine, heroin, as well as a number of narcotic-based drugs that much of the public would not think of as being covered by drug crime statutes, such as Oxycodone and Vicodin, and more. Transactions involving or transporting controlled substances over a state line or over a country’s border is considered federal drug trafficking, a federal crime for which the penalties are especially severe.

As federal drug crime defense attorneys, we will work to get the federal drug charges against a client eliminated or reduced. Whether at the investigative stage, during pre-trial negotiations with the U.S. Attorney’s Office or at trial, our attorneys seize every opportunity to find all weaknesses in the government’s case.

Our aggressive approach in defending drug crimes includes us fighting the admissibility and sufficiency of the government’s evidence, the accuracy of drug test results, and illegal searches and seizures.

Peter H. Barrett and William C. Barrett both have significant experience with all types of drug crimes and have an extensive knowledge of federal drug sentencing issues. We have unsurpassed experience in the area of drug crimes, including defending or prosecuting as many as 500 or more defendant over our careers.
