Defending Clients Against Federal Drug Charges

At David B. Smith, PLLC, we defend clients against all types of drug charges, from simple possession to distribution and trafficking. Based in Alexandria and New York, our attorneys handle drug crime cases in federal courts nationwide.

Our firm is led by David B. Smith, a former federal prosecutor in the Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Our lawyers represent clients who have been accused of offenses with respect to all types of illegal and prescription drugs. We defend clients against a wide range of federal charges, including:

  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug conspiracy
  • Trafficking in counterfeit prescriptions
  • Importing or trafficking of any controlled substance
  • Drug manufacturing and cultivation
  • Continuing criminal enterprise and RICO
  • Drug analogues

We take a comprehensive approach to criminal defense, zealously advocating for our clients at every stage of the process, from the initial investigation through trial and post-trial proceedings. In particular, our firm has earned a national reputation as an authority in the area of civil and criminal asset forfeiture, which often play a big role in drug cases.
