Drug Trafficking Attorneys in Orlando
Protecting Your Rights & Freedom in Orange County
The State of Florida is very rigorous in its attempts to decrease the number of illegal drugs being passed around, which is why courts are very severe in prosecuting those who have been caught with or accused of trafficking different drugs, no matter the amounts. In many cases, an individual is not even a true "drug dealer," or certainly not leading an illegal ring of drug trafficking. Still, the law imposes harsh prison sentences and fines in order to stamp out drug trafficking. Along with extremely severe consequences, including prison sentences, steep fines, and extended probation time periods, those who have been accused of drug trafficking are forced to face other penalties as well. Many end up losing their homes, even forfeiting cars that the government claims are connected to the trading of drugs.
Our attorneys at Alers Law Firm know that being accused of drug trafficking when you are innocent or only minimally involved is an unfair position to be in. Your entire life could brutally change in an instant. This is why our drug trafficking lawyers in Orlando explain your options from an honest legal standpoint and work vigorously to defend you at all costs.

Types of Drugs
There are several drugs which the government closely monitors to identify cases of illegal trafficking. Being caught with these drugs will most often result in a case where you are charged with trafficking as well as possession.
Some of the drugs which often result in accusations of illegal trafficking include:
- MDMA (Ecstasy)
- Methamphetamine (Crystal Meth or Meth)
Defenses to Drug Trafficking
Our skilled drug trafficking defense attorneys are highly experienced at representing those who have been accused of this crime, utilizing their deep knowledge of trafficking laws to help you receive justice.
Some of the most common examples of defenses against drug trafficking include:
- Defense of illegally searching or seizing drugs – Sometimes law enforcement goes above and beyond their allotted authority. If police officers, detectives, or others in law enforcement positions physically force people to have their cars, houses, or bodies searched for improbable cause, or even coerce people to supposedly agree to a search, this is an example of illegal searching. Seizing drugs through warrants obtained in bad faith is also barred. Our attorneys can prove that such search and seizure behavior was unlawful, and file for “Motion to Suppress” under the fact the Fourth Amendment has been violated, leading to the courts dismissing the case.
- Entrapment – This is defined as the event where an officer of law enforcement or another informant persuades or induces someone to commit a crime. Even for the sake of exposing a larger organization or crime group, it is unlawful to trick someone into committing a crime, and courts would immediately dismiss charges if illegal entrapment is proven.
