Possession with Intent to Distribute: Oklahoma City, OK: Martino Law Firm
Drug trafficking can refer to any involvement in the sale or distribution of controlled substances. It can also refer to specific quantities of drugs that trigger the harshest sentences under the law. The bottom line is that if you have been arrested, indicted or investigated in connection with drug trafficking, you need smart and aggressive representation to avoid a conviction or minimize the sentence. The facts of your case will influence the options and the strategy, but I am confident that my sophisticated approach will improve your outcome.

I handle cases alleging cocaine trafficking and similar charges for methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, prescription narcotics and other controlled substances. I know that these cases are not based on coincidence or law enforcement hunches. Sometimes, trafficking charges are the culmination of long investigations which may have involved wiretaps, surveillance, informants and/or undercover agents. Other times, the charges originate from a simple traffic stop.
However, the State's case is rarely open-and-shut. I will analyze all grounds to challenge the prosecution, including Fourth Amendment violations, Miranda rights, motivation and reliability of government witnesses. I will exhaust every avenue to exclude ill-gotten evidence or prejudicial testimony and I will initiate plea negotiations if it is in my client's best interests to take a deal. If you are facing a term of 10 years, 20 years or life in prison, I am prepared to make the State prove its case at trial.
