As legal statutes change throughout the years, sometimes in significant and jarring ways, it is critical that criminal defense lawyers also adjust and adapt their practices and approach to cases. Drug crime laws are currently in a noticeable state of flux throughout the country, and so it is necessary to understand the changes and create new strategies. Attorney Andrew Proto of Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP has coauthored a book that should help legal professionals prepare for future cases: “Defense Strategies for Drug Crimes, 2016 – 2017 edition: Leading Lawyers on Interpreting Today’s Drug Cases, Developing a Thorough Defense, and Protecting a Client’s Rights (Inside the Minds)”.
This latest edition of “Defense Strategies for Drug Crimes” is one in a series of nationally-acclaimed publications that set the standard for legal tactics and comprehension. Within the publication, drug crime trends, law enforcement behaviors, and arguments favored by the prosecution are thoroughly explored. Through the careful analysis of these key components of a drug crime case, and the realization that the best defense is a good offense, a criminal defense attorney can gain the upper hand in the most complicated of cases and trials.

While Attorney Proto was able to provide insight on a variety of topics discussed in the book, he wrote the chapter titled “New York State’s Shift in Prosecuting and Defending Drug Crimes”. Within the chapter, the topic of our nation’s changing views on marijuana and its related crimes are explored. As more and more people see marijuana and other THC-substances as nothing more than a recreational drug, prosecutors, investigators, and law enforcement officials have needed to take a step back, revisit their own approach to cannabis crimes, and adjust their strategies; as the book explains, this shift in the opposition’s mindset requires criminal defense attorneys to also make changes, assuming they want to succeed in protecting their clients’ rights, futures, and reputations.
