Facing Felony Drug Charges on the Lower Eastern Shore?

Defending You Against Distribution, Trafficking, and Kingpin Cases

Felony drug charges are some of the most serious criminal offenses you can face on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. The judges in the Circuit Courts for Somerset County, Wicomico County, and Worcester County take these offenses very seriously and impose some of the harshest sentences in the region. The Salisbury drug crime attorneys at Anthenelli, Phoebus & Hickman, LLC, have been successfully defending persons charged with serious drug offenses on Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore with 75+ years of collective legal experience.

Defending CDS Trafficking Cases on U.S. Route 13

U.S. Route 13 is a major route between New York City and Norfolk, Virginia. It runs through all of the Maryland counties that our firm practices in and is known to law enforcement as a "drug corridor". Many of our clients are stopped and searched under the pretext of a routine traffic violation, only to find themselves detained as their vehicles are searched on the roadside.

If you have been arrested following a search of your vehicle and charged with a felony drug crime, our Salisbury defense attorneys have the experience to determine whether the evidence seized can be thrown out at a suppression hearing. Our legal team has won many suppression hearings involving large quantities of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. If you are out of state, you need a local attorney who is experienced in the courthouses of the Lower Eastern Shore. A lawyer from the city will be as unfamiliar with our courthouses and local practices as you are.
