If you have been charged with a federal drug crime, the police and prosecutors are coming at you full force. With your reputation, future and freedom at stake, you may not know where to turn for help.

At Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC, senior partner attorney Jeffrey Engle is a former prosecutor in the district attorney's office who handled drug crime cases and understands how the other side approaches and prosecutes these types of cases.

Skilled Representation Against Federal Drug Charges

Clients who face misdemeanor or felony drug charges benefit from Mr. Engle's years of experience, in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system, and relationships within the court and probation office. He knows all available community resources and alternative sentencing options.

Even in serious drug crime cases, there may be options that can allow you or your child to remain in the community rather than in jail or a detention facility. Shaffer & Engle defense lawyers represent adults and juveniles charged with drug and drug-related crimes for any type of narcotics or drug (such as cocaine, marijuana, heroin, PCP, mushrooms or prescription drugs) in Pennsylvania state court, including:

  • Possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute
  • Prescription fraud
  • Distribution
  • Drug manufacturing and cultivation
  • Drug trafficking
  • RICO

Alternative Sentencing In Drug Crime Cases

A significant number of people who are picked up and charged with drug crimes have a problem with addiction. We work to get our clients the rehabilitation help they need. Starting into counseling before a trial begins demonstrates ownership and a willingness to address an addiction problem. This can play in your favor when your lawyer is negotiating a plea agreement or presenting your case in court.

We encourage our clients to get the help they need outside of court — we'll do our best for you in court.
