Hollywood Drug Possession Lawyer

Florida law enforcement officials aggressively prosecute misdemeanor and felony drug charges. Conviction can result in a lengthy incarceration. It is critical to enlist the services of an experiencedcriminal defense lawyer who understands state and federal drug laws, knows when police have infringed upon your constitutional rights, and has a record of success defending clients both in and out of court.

I am attorney David E. Magilligan, founder of Magilligan Law in Hollywood. I have prosecuted and defended individuals who faced a wide range of drug charges. My work as a prosecutor with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office before opening my own criminal defense firm provides me with valuable insights into how the state builds its cases.

During my time working with the state attorney’s office, I witnessed too many individuals who received second-rate legal counsel from lawyers who were disengaged. A commitment to develop a legal strategy that best serves each client’s unique needs is a cornerstone of my approach.

Minimizing The Impact Of Drug Charges

Conviction of even a simple possession charge can sabotage a career and wreck your personal life. I strive to minimize the impact that drug charges will have on you. I will examine all options, including the possibility that overzealous police seized evidence illegally and the possibility of having your case dismissed. I also have thorough knowledge of diversion programs that are commonly used as alternatives to incarceration.

I represent individuals who face a variety of charges, including:

  • Possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other controlled substances
  • Sales and distribution
  • Purchase of a controlled substance
  • Trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Prescription fraud
