When choosing a criminal defense attorney in New York for marijuana crimes, consider how much of the attorney's practice is devoted to fighting cannabis cases in state or federal court.

You should also consider ratings and reviews, and the attorney fees required for the representation.

From the simple possession of marijuana, to the cultivation of cannabis, to serious drug trafficking offenses, marijuana crimes come with serious penalties and punishments under state and federal law.
