Experienced New York Criminal Defense Attorney
Don’t Take Any Drug Charge Lightly
If you have been arrested for a drug crime, you are facing some very serious penalties, including stiff fines, jail time and forfeiture of your property. Most drug crimes are charged as felonies, which can be permanent black marks on your record. The police and the prosecution are interested in getting a conviction. Law enforcement will not tell you if your rights were violated during your arrest or the police investigation. You need an experienced drug crime defense attorney committed to protecting your rights.
Aggressive, Skilled Defense Attorney Who Knows Your Rights
Michael D. Horn, Esq., is a veteran trial attorney in Astoria with 25 years of experience. He has one of the highest success rates of handling drug crime charges in Queens and Nassau County. He has extensive experience defending clients at state and federal levels. Mr. Horn understands the differences in approach, severity of charges and negotiating with prosecutors at the state and federal level.
Defense Against a Wide Range of State or Federal Drug Charges
Mr. Horn has decades of criminal defense experience, with a strong focus on defending against drug charges such as:
- Drug possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug sales and distribution
- Drug trafficking or importation
- Drug cultivation or manufacturing (including operation of a methamphetamine lab)
- Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) charges
- Drug conspiracy
A Defense Strategy You Can Rely On to Protect Your Rights
Mr. Horn will listen to your account of events, while asking questions to fill in missing details. He will then go through the prosecution’s evidence, looking for instances where your rights may have been violated or the arresting police officer may have made procedural mistakes.
If law enforcement failed to secure a proper search warrant or violated your constitutional rights with a wire tap, Mr. Horn will not hesitate to fight for a dismissal. He will use any weakness available to cut away at the prosecution’s case with surgical accuracy as he fights to have your case dismissed or get the charges reduced.
“On a scale of 1 to 5, Michael Horn gets a 5-star rating. I highly recommend him. He did a phenomenal job for me, and I know he will for you, too.” — Joseph Sanmiguel, former client
Pursuing Alternatives to Prison
Mr. Horn has been very successful in getting many of his clients into diversion programs such as treatment courts, early release or Shock Incarceration boot camps. These alternatives allow clients to have their charges dropped or deal with a less severe punishment, after completing a treatment program.
He will advocate for you to be accepted into one of these programs if you meet the qualifications. Mr. Horn will dedicate himself and all of his available resources to giving you the best legal representation possible.
