New York Drug Possession Attorney Defending Against Drug Charges

Michael Spano represents clients facing all types of felony or misdemeanor drug charges in Syracuse and Central New York, including:

Federal Drug Prosecutions

Federal drug charges carry harsher sentences than state charges, and the arrest often comes after a long investigation. Michael Spano uses federal court experience and prosecutor insights to challenge warrants, wiretaps, informants and the foundations of the government's case.

Drug Charges Involving Traffic Stops

A significant number of drug cases start with basic traffic stops. In these cases, there are many factors that need to be considered while building your defense strategy.

"I will ask the necessary questions. Did the police have a reason to stop you in the first place? Did the police have a valid reason to search your car? Did their evidence come from an illegal search and seizure? I will get the facts and I will build a case to protect your rights." — Michael Spano
