If you or someone you know has recently been arrested for or charged with a drug crime, it would be within your best interests to secure the immediate representation of the Law Office of Mark A.

He helps individuals with substance abuse problems, seek effective treatment programs in order to improve their health and, where appropriate, possibly minimize their potential criminal exposure.

Understand Potential Penalties

Controlled substance offenses are among the most common federal and state criminal charges in New York. Depending on the type of substance and the amount involved, you may face:

  • Years in state prison
  • Significant reputational damage
  • The possibility of negative professional consequences

Depending on the amount of drugs involved, what type of substance they were and if there are any other aggravating factors, there could be additional penalties as well.

His prosecutorial background also gives him experience in the practices and techniques utilized by law enforcement and prosecutors in investigating and prosecuting drug offenses.
