We understand the many challenges that defendants face when it comes to drug charges, as well as the common issues involved in prosecuting and defending drug offenses. Our first priority is to have our charges dismissed if possible. We can then swiftly proceed towards a trial or seek a reduced sentence depending on what serves your interests.
Some important points we consider when preparing your defense:
In drug crime cases, the drugs are usually the evidence. We know how to attack the evidence vigorously in order to weaken the prosecutor's case. Our law firm meticulously reviews every shred of evidence to identify whether illegal search and seizures, entrapment, improper warrants, or any other procedure was violated during the acquisition of evidence. If we find that evidence was obtained improperly, we push to have the judge throw it out. Without the drugs in question being used as evidence, the prosecutor’s case becomes significantly weaker.
If you are a first-time offender, you may qualify for diversion programs that allow you to seek alternative treatments in place of a conviction. We can discuss your eligibility during our meeting. We would be happy to discuss your defense options and what to expect during the criminal process. Just give us a call anytime and we can review the facts of your case and provide an honest assessment.
