One Example Of A Successful Defense Of A Drug Case

One of our federal jury acquittals in a drug case illustrates our effectiveness and diligence in pursuing all angles in the defense of clients facing drug charges. Our client was a foreign national charged with importing drugs into the U.S. illegally.We took care to review all information provided by the prosecutors who claimed that our client incriminated himself in Spanish when speaking to an informant from Spain. We located a Spanish-speaking expert who testified that individuals from our client’s county of origin would never speak Spanish in the way alleged by the prosecution. The result? Our client went home instead of going to prison.
