Both federal and Arizona state laws strictly prohibit the sale of illegal drugs. Because the “sale” of illegal drugs is considered so much more serious than “possession” for personal drug use – because of the threat to more people – jail or prison time is likely if you’re convicted of selling illegal drugs in Arizona. That’s why, if you’re charged with the crime, you’ll need to speak at once with an experienced Phoenix drug sales lawyer at the law firm of Ariano & Associates, PLLC. The criminal defense attorneys at Ariano & Associates represent a resourceful legal team dedicated to providing aggressive, tenacious, high-quality legal defense representation. If you’re accused of illegal drug sales, Ariano & Associates, PLLC is ready to work for you.


To be convicted of selling drugs illegally to drug users in Arizona, a prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Drug sale laws are complicated in Arizona. If you possess a minimum or “threshold” amount of a drug – an amount that is different for different drugs – the law assumes you possessed the drugs with the intent to sell. An experienced Phoenix drug sales lawyer with the law firm of Ariano & Associates can examine all of the particulars in your case. If your legal rights were infringed by an unconstitutional search, if you were entrapped, or if you were wrongly accused, you should not be convicted. Evidence discovered in an illegal search cannot be used against you. The legal defense team at Ariano & Associates will use every legal tool available to advocate for justice on your behalf.

If you are convicted for illegally selling drugs, and you are dealing with a substance abuse or drug addiction issue, an attorney with Ariano & Associates can recommend alternative sentencing that includes substance abuse programs offering drug rehab and drug addiction treatment.
