Proactive Defense Lawyers Expanding Your Options
We focus on aggressive representation at each stage of the process, from the initial investigation and arrest through pretrial motions, trial and sentencing. While most cases end up at a point far short of jury trial, the leverage we gain through a proactive approach to the charges against you can expand your options for a satisfactory outcome.
Our main goal is to protect you from punishment on the immediate drug possession charges you face. At the same time, we concentrate on protecting the long-range interests of our clients, which usually require preserving the right to eventual dismissal and expungement of the charge. We can advise you about your eligibility for such alternatives as drug court, supervision in lieu of conviction, and other ways to keep your record clean.
While familiarizing you with the range of options that could keep your case out of court on positive terms, our lawyers also go to work to develop your strongest available defense to the specific drug possession charges you’re facing. We examine every detail of the arrest and seizure of the evidence against you.
Depending on the facts of your case, we can challenge a traffic stop, the arrest, the arrest warrant or determination of probable cause, the search warrant, the chain of custody of the evidence, the testimony of arresting officers, and even the lab reports regarding the nature of the alleged illegal substance. Mistakes by law enforcement on any of these points can lead to a strong motion for suppression of the evidence and eventual dismissal of the case.
