East Boston

East Boston is a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Historically, East Boston has had a strong Italian American population, but today there are many Brazilian, Colombian and South American immigrants residing in East Boston. East Boston offers beautiful views of the Boston skyline, Constitution Beach, Suffolk Downs, proximity to downtown and Logan International Airport, and several well-known Italian restaurants.

Drug activities, whether use, dealing, manufacturing, or trafficking, affect East Boston and neighborhoods, cities and towns everywhere. Both the Massachusetts and federal governments have relatively complex laws relating to drug crimes, and these laws can be very difficult to understand for those who are not trained in the law. These laws can also involve extremely harsh punishments, including mandatory minimum sentences, fines, probation, community service, rehabilitation programs, loss of driving privileges and property, and more. Given this, consulting with a qualified drug lawyer should be your first move.

Massachusetts Criminal Drug Defense

There are many different defenses available to those who are accused of drug crimes, but only a skilled and knowledgeable drug crimes defense lawyer will be able to properly raise them. These include lack of possession, lack of intent to distribute the drugs, lack of distribution, entrapment, challenges to weight, challenges to whether the substance was a narcotic, failure to investigate, and more. Drug crimes also frequently involve constitutional search and seizure issues. An experienced lawyer will immediately determine whether your rights have been violated and move to suppress illegally seized evidence or dismiss your case. There are many different defense options, and a zealous criminal defense attorney will explore all of them.
