53. Hi, LosinIt
I am not a lawyer, so my only suggestion would be to cross post this in the New York forum here on DU, in case there are some DU attorneys that specialize in drug cases (perhaps even first time offender drug cases) that could recommend a list of potential attorneys. My best to you and your daughter. I am sure this is an incredibly frightening time for your family. :hug:
