No drug crime case is too small or too large for our skilled criminal defense lawyers. We understand that even misdemeanor charges can result in significant criminal penalties and other consequences. We can handle your defense against a variety of drug charges, including:
- Drug possession
- Drug paraphernalia
- Drug trafficking
- Unauthorized distribution of a controlled substance
- Possession of a controlled substance without a doctor’s prescription
- Selling of drugs
These charges can involve a variety of banned controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, Ecstasy, prescription narcotics, Oxycodone and Oxycontin.
The levels of criminal charges associated with banned substances are classified differently from one drug to another. In any drug crime case, we listen carefully to our clients’ version of how they came in contact with police and how police collected evidence. We look carefully at how law enforcement agents obtained the alleged evidence — and if the substances involved are, in fact, what police claim they are. Very often, we find out during our thorough investigation that there is something fundamentally wrong with the criminal charges such as:
- Police violated our clients’ rights to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure
- Substances put forth as evidence are not what they are alleged to be
- At the time of arrest, clients were not informed of their Miranda rights such as their right to speak with an attorney
- Other constitutional rights of our clients were violated in connection with collection of evidence or an arrest
