Protect Your Reputation And Future

The criminal penalties that stem from drug convictions are serious and can result in years or even decades of imprisonment. Convictions often involve significant fines and seizure of your property. The collateral consequences which follow, including damage to your reputation and possible job loss, can be even more severe. Lasting damage to your reputation from a felony drug charge could prevent you from finding suitable employment.

An Aggressive Defense

There are often a number of defenses that can be raised in the event that you are charged with a drug offense:

  • An arrest can be the result of evidence or testimony that could prove to be unreliable.
  • Police officers often conduct arrests based upon illegal searches and seizures.
  • Warrants are occasionally issued without probable cause.

As your attorney l will challenge unreliable evidence or testimony. I will cross-examine unfavorable witnesses and move to have illegally obtained evidence from being presented in court.
