Drug crimes are some of the most frequently prosecuted charges in Florida. The harsh penalties you are facing will have an extremely negative affect on your future if you don’t do anything to fight back. Unlawful possession, sale, distribution or trafficking of illegal substances is not taken lightly and the consequences that follow a conviction can be extremely harsh and unforgiving. No matter what type of drugs or the amount of drugs you were allegedly involved with, and whether you were in possession of the drug for recreational purposes or drug trafficking, the penalties can be severe and life altering. To say the least, drug possession crimes in Florida can be very complex and are best addressed with the guidance of a drug defense attorney. Many consider Miami to be the illegal drug capital of the country, which means that the prosecutors in South Florida may be particularly fervent about prosecuting drug cases. The number of criminal defense attorneys claiming that they do drug defense cases is unlimited. It is essential to find an attorney who has a long past of defending clients who have been charged in one form or another with drugs- and who has had success. Jessica Mishali has succeeded in having drug cases dismissed by the State, including Drug Trafficking charges. She has also enjoyed several Not Guilty verdicts after trial, including three Not Guilty verdicts based on the defense of Entrapment.
