A drug crime conviction can result in severe penalties and a criminal record that will negatively impact your future.

At Letterio & Haug, LLP, our Hudson Valley drug crimes lawyers work to protect your rights and maximize the chances of having the charges reduced or dropped.
Is Drug Possession A Serious Crime?
Any criminal activity involving drugs may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the type and quantity of the drug, as well as the consideration of other significant factors. Similar to any type of law, felony drug convictions are fulfilled with harsher penalties than misdemeanors, and may consist of years of prison time, probation, and hefty fines.
If you have been arrested for a drug crime, call (845) 203-0997 for immediate assistance. Our office is conveniently located in Beacon.
Strong Representation for All Types of Drug Charges
Although New York has a long history of tough drug laws, recent changes to the law have allowed for judges to sentence defendants to drug treatment programs, conditional sentences, or probation. However, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced lawyer for reliable information that is relevant to your case.
We represent clients facing charges for a wide variety of drug crimes, including:
Penalties for a conviction of a drug crime may include fines, a jail or prison sentence, community service, and participation in a drug treatment program. Even after you have served your sentence, you will have a criminal record that may limit your opportunities in higher education, employment, and obtaining professional licenses in certain fields.
Implementing an Effective Strategy for Your Defense
Our Hudson Valley drug crimes attorneys will discuss the circumstances of your arrest, examine the evidence, and possibly challenge certain evidence. For example, if your arrest resulted from an unlawful search, we may be able to file a motion to have the evidence suppressed. Each case is unique, and we provide legal representation that is tailored to your specific situation.
We encourage you to contact our office at (845) 203-0997 to schedule a consultation to discuss your case with an attorney. Letterio & Haug, LLP takes cases from clients in Orange County, Putnam County, and Ulster County.
