An Attorney Helping Those Accused Of Marijuana Possession And Other Drug Crimes

There is no denying that drug crimes are serious business. Whether you have been charged with possession, delivery, distribution or manufacturing, having an experienced attorney by your side can be the difference between having your charges reduced or dropped and facing severe penalties, including mandatory minimum jail time.

Having defended clients from all walks of life — juveniles and young adults to repeat offenders — I know the strategies that the state or federal prosecutors use to achieve a conviction. By analyzing the facts of the police search and seizure, determining if the authorities cut corners or infringed upon your rights, challenging other evidence ( such as the testimony of informants or wiretap evidence), I will work to cast doubt on the prosecution’s case.

Felony Drug Charges And Protecting Your Future

No matter if you have been charged with federal drug crimes, or your college-age son or daughter faces marijuana possession charges, I will help you take action to see that the charges don’t compromise you or your loved ones personally or professionally.

Some common types of drugs and drug charges I see include:

  • Marijuana
  • Federal and State drug charges
  • Possession, Distribution and Manufacturing charge
  • Prescription drugs
  • Ecstasy and other rave drugs
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine

Protecting You And Your Family Against The Collateral Consequences Of A Drug Charge

Besides fines or jail time, drug charges can cause a student to lose his or her financial aid and make it difficult to stay in school. For others, drug charges make it difficult to find a job; a convicted worker may lose a professional license and be unable to keep his or her position, or lose the right to vote and own a firearm.

There are many long-term consequences that accompany a moment of indiscretion. That is why I explore all options for building a strong defense strategy to protect your future.
