Manhattan Drug Possession Lawyer

Founding partner
Michael V. Cibella is a former senior prosecutor in Kings County, who has more than 15 years of experience in criminal law. He brings to the firm a broad understanding of criminal prosecution and extensive experience trying drugs sale cases, challenging search warrants and litigating search and seizure issues in order to suppress contraband illegally seized by the police in violation of a client’s constitutional rights.

If you have been charged with possession or sale of marijuana or a controlled substance, you need a criminal defense attorney who understands your constitutional rights and can develop a strategic, persuasive defense. We fight hard for our clients when their case goes to trial, and if they decide that a plea deal is in their best interests, we fight just as hard to get them the best possible result.

We also pride ourselves on getting many of our clients enrolled into drug and/or alcohol treatment programs as an alternative to jail. Often times, upon successful completion of treatment, all charges are even dismissed and all criminal records of the arrest and prosecution are sealed.
