Investigating and Defending Drug Charges
The burden of proof in any criminal case is on the prosecution. In many cases, however, the odds are stacked against the defendant. The police thoroughly investigate the alleged crime and generate evidence to support the prosecution’s case. Criminal defense attorneys must also thoroughly investigate the alleged crime in order to cast doubt on the prosecution’s case and mount an effective defense. At the Law Offices of Eugene Fimbianti, P.C., our team of investigators gets started right away collecting evidence to create the strongest possible case and turn the odds in our clients’ favor.
As a former police officer, Attorney Eugene “Gino” Fimbianti is familiar with the procedures law enforcement officers employ when making drug arrests. As a former prosecutor, he understands the strategies prosecutors used when prosecuting drug crimes. His unique insights allow him to accurately evaluate the strengths and weaknesses in the cases against his clients and anticipate the actions of the prosecution. In many cases there may be valid constitutional issues that can lead to a dismissal.
