As discussed last week, New York’s drug courts may be an option for some of those accused of drug crimes. Yet, whether a case is going through one of the state’s drug courts or through a traditional court, one thing is for certain: the accused deserves the highest level of defense possible in facing the allegations, to protect their rights and freedoms.

Such freedoms include the right against an unreasonable search and seizure, the right against self-incrimination and the right to a speedy trial before a fair and impartial jury. These rights are especially important when it comes to drug charges, which can be severe.

Facing such accusations warrants a solid defense. New York attorney Keith Braunfotel, with the law firm of Braunfotel & Frendel, has served many clients facing drug charges. His former work as an assistant district attorney has given him the knowledge of how prosecutors in New York will prepare a drug crime case. For example, his aggressive representation of clients includes determining whether the prosecution has made any mistakes by reviewing police reports to determine whether the accused’s rights against unreasonable search and seizure have been violated. In some cases, it turns out that the evidence obtained was insufficient for a lawful arrest.

The legal team of Braunfotel & Frendel is also experienced in the state’s drug courts. They have represented many types of professionals who are being accused of drug crimes. This includes physicians, nurses and police officers, all of whom may be facing drug charges.
