Representing People Charged With State or Federal Drug Offenses
If you need dependable advice about your options for defeating or resolving serious drug charges under New York or federal law, contact the law firm of Arroyo Copland & Associates, PLLC in Albany. We represent people throughout the Capital District and Upstate New York charged with drug offenses ranging from marijuana possession to federal drug trafficking conspiracies.
Regardless of the size or complexity of your case, you can count on our attorneys for sound advice, an accurate assessment of the strength of the case against you, and a proactive approach toward achieving the best available result under the facts of your case. We practice in both the state and federal courts of New York, and our experience can make a positive difference to your outcome.
An essential feature of our advocacy in drug crime defense is our ability to look out for your long-term interests while meeting the challenges presented by the case at hand. For example, in the less serious range of cases, or when a first offender might be eligible for adjournment in contemplation of dismissal (ACOD), the main concerns will involve the effect of a drug conviction on professional or occupational status, eligibility for student loans, or the loss of a driver's license. In the more serious cases, however, when a prison term is a realistic possibility, we can explain the options for your defense while working to expand them through suppression motions or other pretrial strategies.
