Manufacturing or distributing drugs, often referred to as drug trafficking, is charged as a felony that carries the possibility of up to 20 years in prison.

Defending Against Drug Trafficking Charges in West Michigan
We defend clients facing drug charges related to manufacturing and distribution, including:
- Operating a meth lab
- Operating a marijuana grow house
- Cultivation of marijuana or marihuana
- Possession or distribution of drug paraphernalia, including scales and bags
- Possession of ingredients to make methamphetamine
- Prescription fraud
- Drug importation with intent to distribute or sell

Our Kalamazoo drug crime attorneys analyze every drug-related case to determine if there was an illegal search and seizure of evidence. Did the police have probable cause to stop the car or search your home? Did they have a search warrant and, if so, was it executed properly? If the police did not follow proper procedures, we will file a motion to suppress the evidence against you.
Kristen A.: 20-Year Felony for Possession With Intent to Deliver Cocaine
As our client (a high school student) was a passenger in the car, we negotiated with the prosecutor and the case was dismissed. The FBI then got involved, and we successfully negotiated with it. All federal charges were dropped, the case was dismissed and the client received no criminal record.
