Paterson Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney

A person may be charged individually for drug trafficking or as part of a group in an attempt to curb illegal activity. Depending on that person’s involvement in the distribution of illegal substances, he or she may be facing fines and several years behind bars. If you have been arrested for or charged with drug trafficking, it is wise to have an experienced defense lawyer on your side.

I, Susan C. Cassell, Esq., am a former prosecutor with more than 20 years of legal experience. I use this insight to anticipate the tactics the prosecution will adopt to obtain a drug crime conviction and build an effective defense strategy. You can count on me to be the aggressive legal advocate you need. Call me at 201-445-3894 or contact me online for a free consultation.

Drug Trafficking and Conspiracy

I have represented juveniles and adults in Paterson, New Jersey, and throughout Bergen County and Passaic County for several years. I understand that good people can get caught up in the wrong crowd. The prosecution recognizes this as well and will often target “lesser associates” to gain the upper hand on a larger drug trafficking operation. If you have been charged as part of a drug sale operation, I may be able to work out a deal that prevents or minimizes any charges against you.

In other circumstances involving the sale and distribution of drugs, aggressive litigation may be required to avoid a conviction. I have experience in both state and federal courts, and I am prepared to take your case to trial when appropriate.

I will explain your legal options and the advantages and disadvantages of each path. Together we will decide on the best defense strategy for your case. To me, you are more than a case file. You are a person who has the right to zealous representation. I am committed to protecting your interests, and as your attorney, I will fight for a favorable outcome.
