Defense Strategies for Drug Crimes provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on best practices for representing clients accused of drug-related crimes. Featuring experienced criminal defense attorneys from across the country, this book guides the reader through the current battlefields in the "war on drugs" and discusses how the government's policies on aggressive prosecution and harsher penalties are impacting clients and the defense.
From scrutinizing the initial investigation and arrest to counseling clients during trial and sentencing, these top lawyers highlight creative strategies for every stage in a drug defense case. These authors also evaluate what to do if the case involves multiple defendants, first-time offenders, informants, federal charges, or the addition of a DUI or weapon charge. Finally, these leaders analyze recent important case law, such as Kentucky v. King, and its effect on this practice area. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts on the keys to success within this dynamic field.
