Penalties related to certain illegal drugs have become much harsher in recent years. Evidence of this can be seen in the substantial increase in people incarcerated for drug offenses over the last two decades. It can also be seen in the dramatic increase in property and currency that governments have been adding to their coffers through civil and criminal forfeitures. Many of the cases are large and highly complex, but smaller matters are handled too.
The substances that are commonly involved include marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy, steroids, and illegally obtained pharmaceuticals such as Demerol, Percoset or Oxycontin.
Lawsuit and drug charges faced by clients often include a variety of related offenses. Aside from civil or criminal forfeiture penalties, charges of money laundering and tax fraud often go hand-in-hand with the original crime.
