Narcotics Cases

Federal Narcotics Cases

The enforcement of drug laws by the federal government is as prevalent as fraud prosecutions. The federal government will prosecute those drug offenses that are more serious, either in terms of the scope of the conspiracy and crime or the amount of drugs involved. When facing serious drug charges, it is important to be represented by the very best. Daniel Wannamaker has been in the business of representing major drug cases for over 34 years. Throughout that time, he has successfully challenged the government and in many cases has won jury trials. The following list of offenses are those most often charged.

Drug Conspiracy

In federal prosecutions of drug offenses, simply the attempt to commit the crime is as serious as actually committing the crime itself. Under the conspiracy law, a person is liable for the offense if an agreement between two or more people is made and an 'overt act' is made to further the conspiracy or the crime. An overt act can be as simple as making a phone call or taking notes to aid in the crime. The statute states: "Any person who attempts or conspires to commit any offense defined in this subchapter shall be subject to the same penalties as those prescribed for the offense, the commission of which was the object of the attempt or conspiracy." 21 U.S.C. 846

Drug Offenses

A person can be prosecuted for a drug offense by the federal government. 21 USC 841, states:

(a) Unlawful acts Except as authorized by this subchapter, it shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally —

(1) to manufacture, distribute, or dispense, or possess with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense, a controlled substance; or

(2) to create, distribute, or dispense, or possess with intent to distribute or dispense, a counterfeit substance.

The sentences for these offenses are determined by a number of variables and on a case by case basis.

Presidential Pardon

Daniel Wannamaker has successfully represented high profie clients and has more trial and appellate experience than most other attorneys. He has obtained a rare Presidential Pardon from President Obama for a client who was formerly with the U.S. State Department.

DISMISSAL OF CHARGES

State of Texas v. Scott

Dismissal of charges in a case of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, a second degree felony, and possession of a weapon.

Ultra Responsive, Did everything he said he would do

Dan was very responsive from my first phone call all the way through the case, and then after the case was settled. He walked me through the entire process, was never late for a hearing, and did more than I think any other attorney in the price range would have. Dan is reasonably priced. Not cheap, but when it comes to a quality defense, cheap isn't what you should be looking for.

Best lawyer I ever had

Dan was my attorney for a Federal 200 lb marijuana case. I’m a third time offender and was worried about being labeled a career offender which carries 12 yrs. He argued my case down to 4 yrs and I didn't have to do anything except trust him. I highly recommend him to anyone that is praying for a miracle.

I would trust Daniel Wannamker with my life!!!!

Dan Wannamaker was the best attorney I could ask for. My husband was facing a life sentence on a serious crime. A RICCO case to be specific. I remember feeling hopeless, and afraid of what I did not know could, or would happen. Daniel Wannamaker did an OUTSTANDING job with his defense. Although my husbands case seemed hopeless, he was able to receive a much reduced sentence.

Great attorney, Hyper responsive

Dan worked with me on my case for just over 12 months, but then after the outcome he was still available for emails and phone calls when I had questions. And I knew he was working some high profile cases at the time so I could easily have felt brushed aside.

- Russel S.

I would hands down recommend Dan Wannamaker to anyone who needs his expertise.

Many years ago Dan represented me on a really old federal issue and I must say Dan is absolutely one of the best attorneys. He is persistent, genuine, hard working, and is undoubtedly one of the best not only in Texas, but I would argue in the country.

I would DEFINITELY use him again

He kept us totally informed about everything. He did an excellent job in her defense and was reasonably priced. I would DEFINITELY use him again if I needed someone. Couldn't ask for a kinder person who could also do exactly what he needed to do in the court room.

Mr. Wannamaker is a VERY wonderful attorney!

He defended my son on charges that carried a life sentence, but he fought tooth and nail and got him less than 20 years. Mr. Wannamaker held my hand and walked me through this entire process by always answering my questions of concern and showing me that he genuinely cared about my son. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a defense attorney!

- C.B.

I highly recommend Dan as your prospective attorney.

He has an Incredible wealth of experience and will be your greatest asset when dealing with the courts. He has proven to be very well organized, prudent, and communicative. I've kept in touch with him for years and would rely on him without hesitation should the need arise.

- Rain S.

He has great knowledge of the court system

Mr. Wannamaker was great at communicating with me as to what was going on with my case. He has great knowledge of the court system giving me the best advice and options with my case.
