Law Enforcement Conduct

Our Okaloosa County drug crime lawyers focus on building a strong defense on your behalf. We are well-versed in police procedure and the methods for handling traffic stops. For example, we examine the basis of the charge as it relates to the traffic stop. Did law enforcement have probable cause to stop you? Were any search and seizure laws violated? If you were stopped while driving, law enforcement must have a valid reason for stopping you. If your car was searched using K9 dogs or other measures, law enforcement must have had probable cause for the search.

These are just a few defense methods our attorneys use to ensure law enforcement complies with proper procedure. We have a complete understanding of the various technical defenses that are available for use. We employ our experience, skills, and resources to bring forth the best possible defense on your behalf.
