Counterfeit Cigarettes Tenacious & Effective Legal Advocacy

Accusations of Counterfeit Cigarettes

Counterfeit Defense Lawyer in NYC

New York has the highest tax rate on cigarettes of any other state by over a dollar. With the increases imposed on cigarette taxes, the buying and selling of counterfeit cigarettes has also increased, making New York one of the top two states for counterfeit cigarettes. The highest percentage (21%) of all counterfeit merchandise seized in the U.S. in 2010 was cigarettes.

If you are being investigated for trafficking in counterfeit cigarettes, or if you have already been charged with a crime, you need to immediately contact H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C. Facing any kind of legal situation can be challenging. A criminal investigation, or criminal charges, can not only affect your personal liberty now but far into the future as well. Competent and aggressive legal representation that has only your best interests in mind is the smartest thing you can do to protect your rights and your freedom.

Charged with creating counterfeit cigarettes?

Counterfeit cigarette cases are unique and complex in that they involve both state and federal laws. As an individual, retailer or manufacturer of imitation cigarettes you will want the involvement of a NYC criminal attorney as early as possible. Even though no formal charges may have been filed against you, having professional legal counsel during an investigation can prevent circumstances from worsening. We are committed to our clients and are tireless in fighting for them. One of the most fundamental rights as Americans is the assumption of innocence until proven guilty. We believe in that right for all and are skilled in protecting it.

We cannot stress enough that the sooner you have legal representation the better the chances for a positive outcome. Contact us today.
