Providing Aggressive Drug Charge Defense for Possession or Sale of Marijuana, Drugs or Prescription Narcotics

Our experienced attorneys have handled every type of drug offense, including:

  • Misdemeanor or felony possession of marijuana
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of a controlled substance (cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, meth)
  • Illegal possession of prescription painkillers (e.g., Vicodin, OxyContin)
  • Intent to distribute
  • Sale of drugs in a school zone
  • Trafficking in marijuana or other drugs

Police often cast a wide net, playing loose with Fourth Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure. We will examine all the critical facts of your case: the amount, the conduct of undercover agents, use of informants, where you were arrested and whose drugs they were.

We explore every possible defense and gauge the strength of the prosecution's case, looking for a basis to get charges dropped, to have evidence excluded, or to negotiate a plea to a lesser offense. We aim to help you avoid jail or prison at all costs, including diversion programs for first-time offenders without previous convictions for violent crimes.

We understand that drug charges can lead to serious sentences. We can evaluate your case and let you know what to expect. Contact our lawyers now to discuss your options, including the merits and risks of going to trial.

We provide flexible consultations, including evenings and Saturdays. We accept Visa and MasterCard.
