Sarasota Drug Possession Attorney

If you have been charged with a drug crime, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. The consequences of a conviction can be devastating. You could face significant penalties, including long prison terms, and could put your employment at risk.

At the Law Office of Eric Reisinger, we have the experience you need to fight prosecution for a drug crime. Before opening our practice, Eric Reisinger worked as a prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office. We know how the state gathers and evaluates evidence, and can quickly review the facts and circumstances of your arrest, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you. We can also determine when it will be in your best interest to seek a plea agreement and when you want to fight for your rights in court.

Our Florida Drug Crimes Defense Practice

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who have been charged with possession or trafficking of illegal drugs. We handle cases involving all types of controlled substances, from marijuana and cocaine to heroin, meth and even prescription drugs.

When you hire us to defend you on a drug charge, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances leading to your arrest.

  • We will look at whether police had probable cause to conduct any search or seizure.
  • If you were caught in a buy by an undercover police officer, we will investigate whether the tip came from a confidential informant. If so, we will look at the history of the informant to determine credibility.
  • We will also question whether law enforcement officers properly identified you or whether the wrong person was arrested.
  • We will verify that the substance sold or possessed was what they claimed it was. If it was a prescription drug, we will verify whether you have a valid prescription.

We will also help you get the help you need through a diversionary program such as rehabilitation.
