Miami Sale or Delivery of a Controlled Substance Lawyer

Effective Criminal Defense Serving Miami

Possession of a controlled substance is an incredibly common criminal offense in Florida, but offenders face much more serious consequences if accused of selling or delivering an illegal drug. In many cases, sale or delivery of a controlled substance is a felony offense. Law enforcement officers do not need to witness the actual sales or deliveries in order to arrest people for these offenses, as many agencies rely on witnesses or confidential informants to testify that they witnessed the alleged sales or deliveries. If you were charged with this crime, get help from the Miami sale or deliver of a controlled substance lawyer at The Hoffman Firm.

Give us a call at (305) 928-1669 today if you are in Miami. Call us at 954-737-3004 if you are in Broward County.
