Unnecessary Escalation of Minor Traffic Violation Turns into Marijuana Possession Charge. Drug Defense Attorneys Get Case Dropped in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

South Florida Drug Defense Attorneys get Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell Charge Dropped in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Outcome of Marijuana Possession Case:

On the date the motion was set to be heard in Court, the reasonable State Attorney dropped the felony charge in exchange for a misdemeanor and our client walked out of court without a felony on his record.

Client Concerns about Marijuana Possession Charge:

Eric was worried that his side of the story would not be heard. Not to mention that his rights were severely violated and he wanted redemption.

Facts about Marijuana Possession Case:

Eric was stopped for a minor traffic infraction in Broward County. This minor infraction quickly snowballed into a full-on felony interrogation – including a drug-sniffing dog from one of the most experienced units in Florida. The cops who stopped Eric’s car never smelled an odor of cannabis, never received a tip that there was cannabis in the car and never had any evidence whatsoever that our client was involved in illegal/criminal activity. The cops who stopped the car said that our client’s voice had cracked and that he seemed nervous – which is why they called in one of Florida’s most experienced drug units to search the car. What the cops who stopped the car failed to do was to honor Eric’s Constitutional Rights. Law enforcement cannot elongate a stop if there is no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity afoot – this means that if you are stopped for a minor traffic infraction and the only thing they see is nervous activity, they cannot hold you on the side of the road longer than it takes to write you a ticket. Unfortunately for our client, the cops did hold him longer than was reasonably required and subjected him to an illegal search of the car. This resulted in an illegal arrest of our client for very serious drug charges. Because of this illegal police activity, our client was arrested, had his mugshot taken, was facing charges that could land him in prison for 5 years, had his car impounded, and much more.

Strategy of Attack on Marijuana Possession Case:

First step, Attorney Adam Rossen got Eric’s car released. Then, Manny Serra-Jovenich challenged the police activity and search of the vehicle via a Motion to Suppress. This led to a reduction in Eric’s charger resulting in simply having a misdemeanor offense.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
