Drug Charges

When you are facing drug charges, you are potentially at a crucial crossroads of your life. If you make a mistake and fail to take your charges as seriously as you should, you could find the rest of your life being defined by a single mistake.

Drug crimes carry some of the most serious penalties of any nonviolent criminal charges. You may be facing obvious consequences such as:

  • Extensive prison time
  • Substantial fines

Less Obvious Consequences Of A Drug Conviction

What many people may not realize is that even minor drug offenses can carry long-term consequences that are harder to identify immediately. For example, a drug conviction will, in most cases, prevent you from receiving financial aid for college. Also, having a drug conviction on your criminal record may prevent you from being able to secure a decent job.

Putting forward the strongest defense now is the only way to protect your future.

How Do You Fight Drug Charges?

One of the first issues we analyze when building a defense against drug charges is whether the police violated your Fourth Amendment right to be free from illegal searches and seizures. If the police violated your constitutional rights while pursuing drug evidence, we will work to keep that evidence out of court. Few drug cases are successful without drug evidence.
