Our Attorneys are Experienced in Drug Offense Defense
You need a criminal defense attorney on your side whether you are facing charges for a minor drug offense, such as possession of drug paraphernalia, or are facing serious charges, such as trafficking of cocaine or prescription drugs.
Our attorneys provide clients with the aggressive and straightforward legal advice and representation they need to make important decisions about their drug case.
Our criminal defense attorneys defend clients facing misdemeanor or felony drug charges in southwest Michigan. Some of the cases we handle include:
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Drug trafficking
- Marijuana possession and other drug possessions
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug distribution/sale
- Trafficking of prescription drugs (such as OxyContin)
- Operation of a meth lab
Penalties for drug convictions vary depending on many factors including the quantity involved, was the quantity sufficient for your own personal drug use or is it plausible to believe you intended to distribute? Were interstate borders or international borders involved? Are there prior drug convictions on your record?
As criminal defense attorneys, we know how to develop an effective defense strategy. Our drug crime defense attorneys investigate all aspects of your case — from the initial search and seizure to your arrest and interrogation. If your rights were violated, such as through an illegal search or forced confession, the evidence may be withheld from the record. As a result the prosecution’s case will be weakened and the charges may be reduced or dropped.
For example, in certain cases, charges for possession with intent to sell may be reduced to drug possession or charges for simple possession may be dropped altogether. Remember, if the drugs were obtained as evidence through an illegal search, they cannot be used against you.
