Fight Back Against Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking charges are some of the most severe criminal charges a person can face. These charges are often federal crimes. This means relentless federal prosecutors will seek a conviction to your case. Since these cases are so serious and complex, it is critical to speak with a lawyer with a comprehensive understanding of state and federal drug laws.

For nearly 30 years, The Law Firm of Gil Colón, Jr., has provided aggressive criminal defense to individuals facing trafficking and distribution allegations. In addition to our three offices located throughout Polk County, attorney Colón will travel to meet with individuals in Hillsborough County.

Our extensive experience and proven results resolving trafficking cases gives us the in-depth understanding needed to better position you for a more favorable outcome.

Trafficking Charges Carry Harsh Penalties

Florida uses mandatory minimum sentencing after a trafficking conviction. These charges carry significant fines, long prison sentences and a conviction will stay on your criminal record for years to come.

The severity of the penalty depends on the type of drug and the amount trafficked. Less severe trafficking charges may carry three-year prison sentences and fines ranging from $25,000 to $50,000. On the high end, a conviction could result in a 25-year prison sentence and up to $750,000 in fines.

Serious Charges Require A Serious Defense

We focus our time on developing a defense plan tailored to your needs. We investigate the details of your case, read police reports and learn about your situation so that we can provide strong counsel when meeting with you. We will analyze whether law enforcement entrapped you, conducted an illegal search or otherwise violated your constitutional rights.

Attorney Colón's goal is to reach the most favorable outcome possible for your case. We have had success negotiating favorable plea agreements, settlements or have had charges dismissed altogether. However, if a trial is necessary, we have extensive experience arguing in front of judges and juries. As a former prosecutor with more than 10,000 cases resolved, we know what it takes to build a strong case and reach a positive outcome.

We will always provide you with an honest analysis of your case to help you understand what to expect from your case and the results that may be possible.
