Experienced Drug Defense Lawyer

Whenever facing a drug charge, of any kind, you need an experienced drug defense lawyer.  Drug charges can range from simple misdemeanor possession of marijuana to multi-jurisdictional federal felonies involving “hard” drugs. Regardless of the charge, you need a competent and dedicated criminal defense attorney to help you obtain the most favorable outcome.

Depending upon the nature of your drug crime, your attorney may also advocate on your behalf for the imposition of an alternative sentencing structure wherein you are able to obtain rehabilitation for an underlying substance abuse problem.  By working with an attorney through the drug defense process, you are taking the guesswork out of the prosecution’s next move and are gaining greater control over the outcome of your case.

Drug Possession Cases

Drug possession crimes generally fall into two categories: possession for personal use and possession with intent to sell.  Often, possession with intent to sell carries a lower penalty and the distinction between the two type of drug possession crimes is often a source of contention between prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Drug Manufacture

If you are facing charges relating to the cultivation of marijuana or the manufacture of illegal drugs, you should have a criminal defense attorney aggressively representing you because of the severity of the potential consequences. Law enforcement often circumvents the bounds of constitutional criminal procedure when engaging in the surveillance of alleged manufacture or grow operations. For this reason, there is a possibility you could have these charges dismissed altogether if your attorney can successfully argue for the suppression of drugs seized as a result of an unlawful search.

Drug Sales or Trafficking

Drug trafficking activity often crosses state or national lines and could result in the involvement of federal authorities in your drug crimes case.  If you are caught engaging in drug sales, you could face serious felony penalties.  There are also sentencing enhancements for drug sales within a certain distance of a playground, school or daycare. Regardless of the nature or extenuating circumstances of your drug sales charge, you need an attorney who will advocate for you.

As a former prosecutor, I fully understand the power law enforcement has. As a trial attorney, I know the law seems very scary.
