Knoxville Federal Drug Crime Attorney: Aggressive Advocate

The federal law mainly used to prosecute drug crimes is the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act. The Act classifies drugs into 5 different categories or "schedules" in decreasing order of dangerousness, addictiveness, and lack of medical value. Penalties for misuse are listed on each schedule. If you are the target of an investigation or already charged with this federal crime, it is important to take action immediately. There are key steps Attorney Kurtz can take during an investigation or immediately after arrest that could improve your criminal defense.

He will thoroughly examine every aspect of your case for any flaw or weakness that can be used in your defense, such as:

  • Deviation from correct police procedure during the investigation
  • Illegal search
  • Illegally obtained evidence
  • Infringement of your rights during or after arrest
