Atlanta Cocaine Trafficking Defense Attorney

If the federal government arrests you and charges you with cocaine trafficking or another serious drug offense, they will use their vast resources to try and convict you. Trafficking illegal drugs carries severe penalties. As soon as you suspect you are under investigation, seek experienced legal counsel immediately.

20 Years of Experience Staying Ahead of Prosecutors

I am Richard Grossman, a cocaine trafficking defense attorney with more than 20 years of experience in serving Fulton County, Gwinnett County and the surroounding areas. I know how to stay ahead of federal and state prosecutors with ample resources to try and secure a conviction. When the stakes are high, I do not back down. I will take every opportunity to protect your rights with an aggressive defense strategy.

If you are accused of drug trafficking, contact our firm for a free initial consultation. I will apply my years of experience and legal skills focused on protecting your rights at every turn possible.

Understanding Federal Cocaine Trafficking Penalties

Even for a first-time trafficking offense, trafficking cocaine or crack cocaine can result in hefty penalties based on the amount in question:

  • 28 grams or more punishable with three years in prison and a $50,000 fine
  • 500 grams or more punishable with five years in prison and a $100,000 fine
  • A kilogram or more punishable with 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine
  • 10 kilos or more punishable with life in prison without parole

Because I have in-depth knowledge of both state and federal sentencing guidelines, I can develop a sound drug defense strategy that seeks the lowest possible penalty in every case.

Protecting Your Rights at Every Turn Possible

Whether you are charged with drug importation, possession with intent to distribute or selling/distributing cocaine, federal prosecutors must prove every element of the cocaine trafficking charges against you. Federal drug enforcement authorities typically proceed to trial only if they believe they have a strong case. I will build a strong defense by carefully examining how evidence was obtained. Any evidence including drugs, paraphernalia and other associated items illegally seized by law enforcement cannot be used to prove the elements of the crime.

Mr. Grossman is an excellent lawyer and we cannot recommend him highly ENOUGH! He answered our plea for a lawyer on a Sunday afternoon and helped us navigate the legal system smoothly. We had never had need for a lawyer before and Mr. Grossman worked several months on our behalf, keeping us informed the whole way, and got the case dismissed. His knowledge, concern and experience were greatly appreciated!!
