Officers Targeting Interstate 80 for Drug Arrests
Law enforcement officials believe that Interstate 80, running west and east across Nebraska, is a pipeline for drug trafficking in the United States. As a result, officers watch for vehicles that they suspect may be carrying drugs. Often, they seize currency and property. If you or your loved one is facing a drug-related charge or property seizure from a police stop on I-80 or elsewhere, the experienced Omaha drug offense lawyers at Dornan, Lustgarten & Troia, PC, LLO can help.

Nebraska Interstate Drug Crime Lawyers Can Help You
Our representation of your drug charges may include:
- Working to secure your release from jail while your charges are pending: We understand that our clients simply want to go home, return to their jobs and reunite with their family members.
- Reviewing your case for possible defenses: We strive to get your case dismissed because police stopped or searched your vehicle or home illegally, because your confession was taken illegally or for other reasons.
- Working to secure the best possible outcome for your case: Our goal is a dismissal or an acquittal, or the best result possible.
Challenging the Seizure of Your Property
We also represent clients whose property has been seized because law enforcement officers believe it was used for drug trafficking. The seizure of your property is called civil forfeiture, and it may occur regardless of whether you are charged with a drug crime. You must fight if you want your property back from the government. Our experienced attorneys will explain your rights under civil forfeiture laws and help you try to get your property back.
