Drug crimes, and their penalties, vary widely depending on the drug that is involved in the charge, the amount of the drug, and many other factors. Factors such as the severity of the alleged crime. As an example, possession of marijuana would normally carry a much lesser penalty than a charge for drug distribution or drug trafficking.

Whatever your drug charges, and whatever scenario you are in, it is in your best interest to retain sound legal counsel immediately. The sooner you get a drug crime defense attorney on your side, the sooner you can begin fighting for your freedom. As an experienced and tenacious drug crime defense attorney, I have fought for the rights of hundreds of clients in my years in practice. I know the law inside and out, and will find the best line of defense for your situation. Call me to set up a free consultation; I'll listen to your side of the story, and help you decide where to go from here.

When a person is charged with a drug crime, there are several factors that can greatly worsen the situation. Such factors will most likely increase the nature of all charges that have been filed against you and can heavily increase the penalties you face. These include, but are not limited to:


  • If a weapon was in your possession, or accessible, at the time the offense occurred
  • In some situations, the severity of the drug charges will depend on how close you are to any schools or daycare centers
  • If the drug crime that was allegedly committed is part of any type of gang dealings or organized criminal groups


My approach to fighting drug crimes is a simple one. I prepare for each case as if it is going to go to trial. I am aggressive in my pursuit of every possible avenue of defense for my clients. I believe that being prepared is the key to a successful case.

A good trial always starts with looking into every lead. Doing an interview of all witnesses, and coming up with a solid defense strategy long in advance of any court date. I do not have a wait-and-see approach to defending drug crimes. I will begin to review your case right away, and build your defense based on the facts, and the prosecution's case, or lack thereof. I am prepared to fight tooth and nail within the legal system to get you the justice you deserve.
