Long Island Drug Distribution Attorney
Arrested for Drug Distribution in New York?

on the type of drug and the amount involved in the case. State law mandates

been for personal use, and if the quantity exceeds this threshold, it
will be believed that distribution of the substance was planned, or has
already been taking place.

whether by car, truck, boat or by courier, mail, or other means can lead to
felony charges of drug distribution. At Prime & O'Brien, LLP, our Long Island

There are a number of ways that a case of drug distribution could be successfully
defended. As with any
criminal offense, to determine the strategy to employ will require a full assessment of

of evidence could have been compromised. You may have merely been in the
wrong place at the wrong time. Allow our professional Long Island drug
crime attorney to
evaluate your case before you make any decisions, or answer any questions.
