Our Florida Drug Charge Defense Experience & Philosophy

The attorneys in the Law Offices of Bjorn Brunvand have been representing individuals facing felony drug charges in Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater and the surrounding areas for almost 25 years. We have represented Americans as well as citizens from many different continents including North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Our firm is available to any citizen or corporation in need of an excellent criminal defense team.

We have extensive experience in defending felony drug cases in all of the Tampa Bay area’s state and federal courts. We work on cases involving drug possession, importation and/or distribution of narcotics, manufacturing drugs and illegal sale of prescription medications. Our long history of representing clients in Tampa felony drug cases also includes representation of those charged with drug-related crimes like fraud and money laundering or racketeering/RICO violations.

Felony drug charges can devastate anyone’s personal life and their business or occupation. The aggressive approach of state and federal prosecutors means that many charged in the Tampa area with felony drug offenses face minimum mandatory prison sentences.

The Law Offices of Bjorn Brunvand can guide you through the state or federal criminal justice system with a combination of skill, experience, tenacity and understanding. We are available for immediate intervention during the investigation of any potential drug crime. If contacted early enough, we will handle all law enforcement requests and can begin discussions with prosecutors even before charges are filed.

What Types of Drug Cases Does Your Firm Handle?

Many Tampa criminal defense attorneys limit their practice to state and municipal courts. But Bjorn Brunvand – a Florida Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney and a nationally Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer – has a wealth of experience defending federal criminal cases as well.

Our firm also defends people who have been charged for allegedly participating in large drug distribution or importation organizations.

After over 20 years in practice, we are well-versed in all state and federal drug laws and can aggressively defend even related charges like possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of drug manufacturing equipment, money laundering or racketeering.

Law Enforcement Says Your Drug Case is “Open and Shut”? What We Can Do to Defend Your Rights.

We’ve been around the Tampa area courthouses for over two decades. We have a deep and up-to-date knowledge of Florida and federal drug laws. We have developed exceptional skills and strategies for handling the defense of Tampa felony drug cases.

Our attorneys start with a thorough examination of the facts of your case. We review the evidence including witness statements and physical materials. We pore over every detail to determine if law enforcement’s conduct followed appropriate procedure and met all legal requirements. If law enforcement made any errors, that conduct can be challenged and used to your benefit in motions or at trial.

Even if the facts of your case suggest that a guilty verdict would be the likely outcome of a trial, our firm will utilize the strengths of your case including your personal community, family and criminal history (or lack thereof) to negotiate a reasonable plea agreement.

Rest assured that no strategic decisions will be made without your knowledge and consent. The Law Offices of Bjorn Brunvand regularly communicate with the client so that lawyer and client can work as a team in the defense of the charges. We communicate frankly with our clients about the realities of their cases and the court system in the Tampa Bay area.
