Importation Lawyer in Yuma

As law enforcement and the government carry on the war on drugs more people are convicted of drug crimes each year than all other crimes combined. Prosecutors are more serious than ever about prosecuting anyone suspected of importing of drugs into the state. Bringing any controlled substance into Arizona is a felony no matter how small the amount involved. Californians who may be legally using marijuana for medical reasons while at home are often surprised that it is not only not allowed in Arizona, but that mere possession is a felony.

A knowledgeable importation lawyer with our firm has a reputation for successfully representing clients accused of importation of various amounts of drugs such as:

  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • LSD
  • Meth
  • Ecstasy

Arizona has for some time been used as an entry point for drugs coming into the country. The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) in cooperation with other government agencies has stepped up its’ vigilance at the border and various routes, using checkpoints and drug dogs in an effort to control the movement of drugs into the state and on into the rest of the country. In their enthusiasm sometimes agents at checkpoints violate constitutional rights and their own regulations by searching a vehicle without cause, or make other procedural errors. Our firm looks thoroughly into every facet of the prosecutions’ case for weaknesses and flaws as we build the defense for our client. Our goal is to protect our clients’ future.
