Drug Crimes

Whether you have been charged with simple possession, possession with intent to sell or drug trafficking, the penalties for a drug conviction are severe and may result in lengthy prison sentences and fines. Mandatory minimum sentences require judges to impose strict sentences that cannot be plea bargained away.VVV

An aggressive legal defense is a necessity in a drug crime case. Now is not the time to represent yourself in court. You need a skilled attorney who has experience dealing with drug cases at both the state and federal levels.
