        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        Our Buffalo Drug Crime Lawyers Are Former Prosecutors

        We know that what matters in any criminal case is evidence, and because we’ve built these cases as prosecutors, we know how to attack the evidence that the prosecution will bring. We start at the beginning and we work forward from there. For instance:

        Were you searched during a traffic stop?

        Was the stop legal?

        Was the search legal?

        Were there other people present, and who witnessed these events?

        What testing methods were employed?

        Is all equipment properly calibrated and maintained?

        Are personnel at testing facilities properly certified and trained?

        Did police follow correct procedures during the arrest?

        Did police follow correct procedures during the interrogation?

        Did police read you your Miranda warnings?

        And that’s just the start. Our Lawyers will examine the evidence, interview witnesses, and build the case you need to fight back.
