I Have Specific Experience With Federal Drug Charges

Many drug offenses, especially higher level charges of trafficking and conspiracy, are charged in federal court. Everything is turned up a notch in federal drug prosecutions. Federal agencies and joint task forces have substantial resources, including informants, undercover agents and surveillance. Federal prosecutors are sharp and aggressive. Sentences are typically harsher, with fewer opportunities for plea bargains.

For these reasons, you need a skilled defense lawyer who is "on his game" and familiar with federal court procedure. I am attorney Ryan L. Beasley. I have practiced extensively in federal criminal defense, including drug crime cases. From my office in Greenville, I serve the accused in the surrounding Upstate counties and throughout South Carolina.

Drug Crime Defense In The Federal Arena

In 15 years of practice as a criminal defense lawyer and as a prosecutor before that, I have handled the full range of federal drug prosecutions and related charges:

  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug conspiracy and RICO prosecutions
  • Weapon charges and weapon enhancements
  • Money laundering and wire fraud

Many people are paralyzed when they learn they may be caught up in a federal drug investigation. I believe in taking action rather than waiting to see what happens. I use my relationships with DEA officials, prosecutors, judges and others in the federal system to try to head off an arrest or indictment. When I am contacted early in the process, I am often able to influence charging decisions or keep certain evidence out of court.

My proactive approach is especially beneficial to clients on the periphery of drug stings and long-term drug trafficking investigations. If the government was not targeting you, I aim to keep it that way. If the prosecution does go forward, I will vigorously assert your Fourth Amendment rights and other defenses in motions, hearings, trials and appeals.
