Phoenix Drug Crimes Lawyer

Drug offenses are some of the most intricate cases to defend. Not everything is what it appears to be at first blush. For instance, a simple possession case where drugs are found on an individual’s person could be the result of an illegal search and seizure. Or on the other hand, an individual who is caught with a large quantity of drugs for sale should always ask the following questions: how did the government know what I had; how did they know where I would be; and to whom did they know I was selling to? Most often, large quantity drug sales are the result of cooperation of confidential informant, a wiretap, or questionable law enforcement tactics.

Drug crimes include simple possession of controlled substances (marijuana, spice, methamphetamine, bath salts, precursor chemicals, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and prescription drugs); possession of drug paraphernalia; trafficking and sales; manufacturing; cultivation of marijuana; wiretaps (electronic use of a wire to discuss or arrange drug deals); conspiracy to commit sales; and money laundering

The partners at Mendoza/Jakobe Law have a combined 36 years of attacking large-scale drug cases. We understand the necessity of obtaining all of the information the government must provide us, and then going after the information the government does not want to provide us. We do not simply rely on the police report. Mendoza/Jakobe Law concentrates on the tiniest of details in the State’s investigation from the affidavit to the search warrant, ferreting out the confidential informant, and thoroughly reviewing how the government obtained the wiretap and listening to all wiretap recordings. It is the painstaking attention to detail that is required on all drug cases.
