Our comprehensive legal services are designed to protect your rights whether you have been accused of any (or a combination of) the following charges:
As your drug possession defense lawyer in Miami, we will represent you if authorities have accused you of possessing cocaine, marijuana, or any other illegal drug. Charges may relate to illegal drugs being discovered in your car, on your person, or in any other specific item or space that belongs to you.
We also offer top legal representation for drug trafficking or distribution cases, whether you are accused of selling drugs or giving them to another person. We’ll help you navigate these potentially complex charges, which could see you in legal trouble even in the absence of evidence that drugs changed hands.
Drug manufacturing is an extremely serious offense, and we provide the best legal representation if you have been charged with growing marijuana or creating drugs like methamphetamine or crack cocaine.
Hiring a drug lawyer in Miami gives you a better idea and understanding of Florida’s drug schedules, which are broken down into five groups. The schedule of drugs is categorized by the danger the drugs pose.
Schedule I refers to a drug that does not have medical use and a high potential for abuse. It includes heroin, cannabis, LSD, peyote, fentanyl derivatives.
This category refers to substances that have medical use but which have a high potential for abuse. These include, for example, Oxycodone, Morphine, and Opium.
This category refers to drugs that have an accepted medical use and which may be abused but which are also less likely to be abused than the drugs outlined in the previous two categories. These may include Chlorhexadol, Nalorphine, Zolazepam, Embutramide, and Buprenorphine.
Drugs in this category are much less likely to be abused and have an accepted medical use and which are less likely to cause psychological or physical harm. Nonetheless, they are illegal to use and distribute without being prescribed and include Barbital, Diazepam, and Tramadol.
Finally, this category refers to drugs that are not likely to be abused, have an accepted medical use, and are not likely to cause users to become dependent on them. They include stimulants, substances with less than 100 milligrams of opium per 100 milliliters, and substances with less than 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters.
As your Miami drug defense attorneys, we will represent you regardless of the schedule of drugs in your case, giving you the best shot at a minimized sentence or the charges being dropped if you were wrongly accused.
Any Miami drug lawyer will tell you that the state of Florida has some extremely strict penalties for drug offenses. These penalties increase depending on the severity of the drug crime, which takes into consideration the type of substance trafficked or manufactured, the quantity of drugs, intention, and where the crime took place.
Penalties range from misdemeanor to felony offenses, with a misdemeanor charge resulting in up to one year in prison and a fine. Felony charges, however, may result in several years in prison and a much larger fine.
Drug possession of over 10 grams of Schedule I and II drugs may be classified a first-degree felony, which is punished by a fine of up to $10,000 and/or up to 30 years in prison.

A drug possession charge may be dropped because of insufficient evidence. This is actually the most common reason charges are dropped in Florida, but you may also have a case successfully dropped if it is discovered that more than one person had access to the drug. This is known as constructive possession.
You may also wish to prove that you did not know the substance was in your possession, or you may successfully have charges dropped if the arrest was unlawful.
The Law Offices of Ama-Mariya Hoffenden will explore all these possibilities to give you the best shot at getting those charges dropped.
