Drug Possession Can Be a Misdemeanor or Felony Offense

I am an experienced drug crimes defense attorney who is dedicated to acting with urgency to each client's case. Most drug possession cases involve confiscated drugs that may or may not have been obtained with a valid search warrant. I can quickly identify if the confiscated drugs were obtained without a valid search warrant. If there was no valid search warrant, your constitutional rights were violated. By proving this, I can either get your case dismissed or the charges against you reduced.

I employ this and other winning strategies on behalf of clients charged with:

  • Simple drug possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Other types of drug possession charges

My ultimate priority is to keep a drug crime conviction off of your criminal record. I explore the most workable option given the charges you face. Deferred sentencing is a viable option for some clients. In deferred sentencing, the individual participates in a drug treatment program and complies with other terms. Once the individual has successfully completed the program, the case is dismissed and his or her criminal record is kept clean. An individual charged with a prescription drug crime, for example, may benefit greatly from such a program.
