Anyone accused of a drug crime should hire an attorney before speaking to federal agents. An experienced federal drug charge lawyer can defend the rights of the accused, while thoroughly investigating the arrest to find out whether the federal agents violated any search and seizure provision of the Constitution.
Any violation of these laws may lead to suppression of the evidence - such as property or a statement - and may get a case dropped entirely. Should drug treatment be a viable resolution to your case, Sullivan & Brill has a great deal of experience in coordinating with forensic social workers and substance abuse counselors to resolve the drug case in a non-jail fashion while at the same time get you the help you need.
Sullivan & Brill regularly defends clients accused of very serious drug charges in New York or in the Federal system. We have represented clients for everything from large-scale international drug conspiracy cases to street buy and bust operations, to cases involving personal drug use and possession.

Sullivan & Brill has handled local, national, and international drug cases, including complex drug conspiracy offenses involving narcotics alleged to be from South America. Rachel Brill, our firm's criminal lawyer in Puerto Rico defended the case of United States of America v. Acosta-Colon which led to the holding that a de facto arrest by federal agents without probable cause required suppression of the controlled substances - the case was ultimately dismissed upon remand. In another case, Steven Brill, our leading criminal defense attorney, is presently representing defendants charged by the U.S. Attorney's Office of the SDNY with RICO and Drug Conspiracy charges involving the Trinitarios in Washington Heights and the Latin Kings in Newburgh, New York.
In yet another case titled United States of America v. Angelje Sherpa, a Nepalese national, and major political figure, was wrongfully charged with being a drug lord in an international drug conspiracy that involved Asia, the Middle East, and the United States. We were successful in not only proving our client's innocence to the United States Attorneys, but we achieved both dismissal of all criminal charges and were instrumental in the granting of his political asylum.
