Anabolic steroid cases are different. If you’re in trouble with the police or federal agents, you need a lawyer who understands. Few state or local police, federal agents, prosecutors, judges or defense attorneys are educated about the substances themselves or the fine points of the applicable laws. It’s not uncommon for offense laws and sentencing guidelines to be misapplied; moreover, the endless misinformation and propaganda reported in the mainstream press about steroids and other PEDs have biased those in the criminal justice system toward sentences that may be unduly harsh.
Rick Collins is the only criminal defense lawyer in America with 20 years’ experience devoting his practice primarily to the defense of anabolic steroid cases in state and federal courts from coast to coast. Rick has been consulted on more cases involving anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, research chemicals, prohormones, peptides, adulterated dietary supplements and misbranded sports nutrition products than most any other lawyer in the nation. He has successfully defended these cases throughout the country, from the BALCO chemist in San Francisco to the Red Star of China steroid lab outside Boston. Rick has been interviewed as a legal authority on performance enhancing substances in the film “Bigger, Stronger, Faster” (2008) and on national television talk and news shows, in talk radio interviews and by countless online and print publications.
A former assistant district attorney, he is admitted to practice in the New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Texas State courts, the District of Columbia, the Federal Courts of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, the Western and Northern Districts of Texas, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the District of Colorado, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the Court of Appeals for the Armed Services and the United States Supreme Court. He has also been admitted to defend cases in state and federal courts in many other states on a case-by-case (pro hac vice) basis, including California Superior Court, San Diego County; Superior Court of the State of Arizona, County of Yavapai; the Federal District Court for the Southern District of California; the Federal District Court for the Northern District of California; the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Iowa; the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri; the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois; the Federal District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania; the Federal District Court for the District of Idaho; the Federal District Court for the District of Maryland; the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida; the Federal District Court for the District of Arizona; and the Federal District Court for the Western District of North Carolina.
