Drug Charges Are Always A Serious Matter
It may seem as if a drug possession charge is nothing to worry about, but you don’t want to have a drug conviction of any kind on your record. It may prevent you from getting jobs and losing financial aid. If you are a student, it can affect enrollment in college. You need an experienced lawyer to fight the charges against you.
Drug charges can encompass everything from personal use and possession to sales/distribution and trafficking. You can come to my firm for defense against charges involving:
- Prescription drugs
Drug crimes charges often originate from illegal search and seizure. Did the police have cause to pull you over? Did they overstep their authority by illegally searching your vehicle? It is important that you have an attorney to make sure your rights are protected and not violated. If I find that law enforcement violated your rights, I will argue for the evidence to be suppressed and the charges dismissed.
Theft Crimes Often Lead To Jail Or Prison Sentences
It is not unusual for people to be stunned that the theft charges they are facing are so harsh. Even a misdemeanor charge comes with serious consequences. In general, theft of under $500 worth of property is a misdemeanor and can mean up to a year in jail as well as fines of up to $6,000. The penalties for theft of goods or services worth more than $500 are even harsher. I can defend you against charges such as:
- Petty larceny/theft
- Theft of property
In addition, I can protect your rights in cases that involve very stiff penalties, including burglary or robbery. A conviction for these charges can result in years in prison.
Other Ways I Can Help
I also provide representation for additional misdemeanor charges involving: traffic violations and DUI and assault and battery. And, I can help you clear your record with the expungement of certain charges or convictions.
