Alabama Federal Drug Charges Defense Attorney
Though many drug crimes are considered state matters, the more serious and wide-reaching cases are prosecuted by federal authorities. At my Tuscaloosa, Alabama, office, clients who are facing federal drug crime issues deal directly with me, attorney Joel Sogol.
I handle federal drug crime matters that involve many different types of substances, including illegal narcotics and prescription drugs. I work hard to help my clients understand the repercussions that a federal drug crime conviction may have on their lives now and in the future, and what positive options they have.

Federal drug charges can include the following, alone or in combination:
- Conspiracy (often involving multiple players in multiple states)
- Drug trafficking
- Drug possession (in large amounts)
- Sale and distribution
- Possession with intent to distribute
One major factor in whether or not a case is handled by federal authorities is the time frame. If the investigation requires several months, even years, then federal authorities would handle it, where state cases often stem from one single, isolated incident.
Federal Drug Charges Defense and Guns
When an individual is armed and dealing drugs, or when guns and drugs are discovered in the same location, a federal case may result. If you find yourself in this situation, it is extremely important to enlist a lawyer that can help you fight the federal drug and weapons charges that may arise from a raid or other discovery of the illicit materials.
