No matter how seemingly minor, any drug charge has the potential to significantly damage your life. Obtaining the right lawyer to help you fight these charges can be the difference between losing your freedom and obtaining a positive outcome. I am criminal defense attorney Luigi Vigliotti. A former New York State prosecutor, I have the skills and knowledge of the law you need to help you resolve your drug charges in a way that protects your future. You can come to my law firm in Garden City, New York, if you are facing any type of felony or misdemeanor drug charge, including possession, manufacturing, sale and distribution.

A Lawyer Who Understands What Is At Stake For You

While some states have taken steps to relax their drug laws, New York still lags behind. Even the medical marijuana legislation that was recently signed into law is very narrow in scope, and smoking the drug is still illegal.

Addressing these allegations head-on is the best strategy. Even if you avoid a criminal conviction, a drug arrest can haunt you when it comes time to apply for jobs or a school loan or try to find housing. As your attorney, I will conduct a thorough investigation to gather all the facts and determine:

  • If police had a proper search warrant or if they illegally seized evidence
  • If you are being charged with intent to sell, whether the amount of drugs seized is accurate and enough to warrant such a charge
  • If there was probable cause to search and/or arrest you in the first place

No matter what type of drug you are dealing with — heroin, cocaine, marijuana or prescription drugs — I can help. For clients who have problems with substance abuse, I have helped them enter treatment programs, giving them the resources they need to get better while preserving their freedom.

Remember, if you are arrested and drugs are seized, you do not have to answer any questions. Instead, you can contact my law firm, the Law Offices of Luigi Vigliotti, P.C., 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 516-385-2940 or 631-861-0000 to make sure your rights are protected.
