Immediate legal representation is 100 percent necessary if you or a loved one is under investigation, has been charged with a felony or misdemeanor, or has been arrested for a drug crime. An experienced and highly skilled drug crime defense attorney is a critical asset at every stage of the legal process. That's where Sweeney & Associates, LLC, can help.
Effective defense requires quick action to investigate, gather evidence and get witness accounts in your favor. Police officers and investigators will build evidence against you. We will work to suppress any evidence that may have been obtained illegally, collected improperly or analyzed incorrectly.
It's possible to prevent charges from being brought against you if you are under investigation. Our lawyers are available 24/7 to protect your rights and offer legal counsel. In many cases, investigators gather evidence for months through wiretaps, surveillance and other discreet investigation practices. We can advise you on their tactics and the legality of their actions, offer legal advice and speak to prosecutors before a case against you is completed.
It's a family problem when a family member is charged with a drug offense. At Sweeney & Associates, LLC, our Quincy criminal defense lawyers have represented the accused throughout Quincy, Canton, and across Massachusetts, defending against charges ranging from college students in possession of marijuana to alleged drug rings trafficking cocaine and heroin.
As your attorneys, we can keep all affected family members informed and help you manage any negative consequences that might ensnare family members, such as publicity, emotional distress, financial strain and issues affecting children.
Attorney Richard Sweeney is a retired Boston police sergeant detective who commanded one of Boston's elite drug units for years. He also trained police officers across the state on investigative techniques, arrest procedures, and evidence collection. This background allows him to recognize when the proper protocols and procedures are not followed or your rights have been violated.
We will catch any discrepancies and use them to mitigate the consequences you face. In some cases, rights violations, faulty search warrants, discrepancies in the chain of custody or in the testing of the drugs can lead to the case being dismissed. Our Quincy-based criminal defense team has more than 20 years of combined legal experience in addition to attorney Sweeney's 13 years with the Boston Police Department. We know criminal cases from all angles.
