Long Island Prescription Drug Sales Attorney

Aggressive Defense Against Drug Sale Charges

Prescription drugs are highly regulated. They can only be obtained via a valid prescription from an authorized medical practitioner. Some are accused of capitalizing on prescription drug abuse and the addictive nature of some of these drugs by providing them to others.

If you are charged with selling prescription drugs illegally, you are going to need a very qualified and experienced Long Island criminal defense lawyer to defend you. Our legal team at Prime & O'Brien, LLP has 20 years of experience in defending drug crimes, and we will aggressively work to protect your rights and freedoms.

Some prescription drugs are in high demand as painkillers, or to just get high. Common examples are:

  • OxyContin
  • Hydrocodone
  • Percocet
  • Vicodin

Patients who are addicted to these types of drugs might be arrested for "doctor shopping," where they seek out different medical practitioners to obtain a number of prescriptions. Some patients doing this are obtaining the drugs for themselves or are accused of engaging in the activity in order to sell to others. Medical professionals have also been arrested for illegally prescribing drugs, such as for one person but under several different false names.
