Fentanyl Charges Put You At Risk

Fentanyl is a synthetic drug that is not meant for recreational use. Doctors prescribe fentanyl to treat cancer patients, surgery patients and others in need of intense pain relief. The illegal manufacture and distribution of fentanyl is growing on the east coast in general, and this is especially true for Florida. Overdoses are increasing, and both the state and federal governments are cracking down with serious charges.

Facing fentanyl-related charges requires an aggressive defense team. At Brunvand Wise, P.A., our team has decades of combined experience serving clients with vigorous criminal defense representation. When you hire one of us, the firm becomes your team, and we will take you and your charges as seriously as you do.
