Drug trafficking is the criminal act of distributing illegal drugs or other unlawful controlled substances. It is similar to sales and distribution; however, trafficking takes place on a much broader scale.
The penalties an individual can face will depend on the kind of drugs, the volume, if it is considered that there was intent to sell and deliver, and any prior convictions.
At Ali & Blankner, all our Orlando trafficking attorneys are former prosecutors, so we have unique insight into how the state prepares and presents their criminal cases. Due to this knowledge and experience, we are able to exploit weaknesses and challenge inaccuracies in the state's case against you.
The genuine care and concern Mr. Ali showed us during a difficult time were very much appreciated. It has been a long journey, however, Mr. Ali and the team at Ali & Blankner have been there with us each step along the way.T.M.

Aggressively Defending Drug Trafficking Charges
A trafficking arrest does not mean you will be convicted automatically, and our legal team can employ any number of defenses to your case. We can argue you were entrapped by law enforcement working undercover, meaning you were induced to commit an offense you otherwise would not have committed, for example.
If the search of your home or person was illegal or a search warrant was obtained in bad faith, this can also be used to undermine the prosecution's case against you. Even if there is some truth to your charges, we can push for reduced penalties if you choose to assist in identifying, arresting, or convicting others engaged in trafficking.
If you have been arrested or charged with drug trafficking, you need to contact an Orlando trafficking lawyer at our firm today in order to schedule your confidential consultation. A conviction for a drug crime can have life-long consequences and severely impact your ability to obtain future housing, employment, and certifications.
