You Can Fight Drug Possession Charges

One of the specific types of drug charges that individuals often face is drug possession. Possession and the other types of drug charges can have serious consequences, leaving you facing jail or prison, in addition to large fines. By contacting an experienced drug defense it may be possible to minimize or eliminate the impact that drug charges have on your life and future.

At the office of Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we work to take immediate action on your behalf. We look at all the relevant evidence to begin building your defense in drug possession matters. By examining all aspects of the situation, we are better able to determine the defense strategy that offers the best possible outcome given your facts.

Did The Police Violate Your Rights?

There are many state and federal statutes and regulations that govern the possession and distribution of drugs. If you have been charged with drug possession, our firm can help you understand the charges you are facing, and the consequences if you are convicted.

We examine the facts of your case, looking at the circumstances surrounding your arrest, to see if the police violated the Fourth Amendment, if there was reasonable suspicion for the traffic stop, if the warrant was supported by probable cause and any other violations that may have tainted the seizure of the evidence the prosecution will attempt to use against you. We can then advise you of the likely outcome of your case.

Drug possession charges can also apply to those accused of possessing a range of controlled substances, prescription drugs and illegal drugs, including:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines (crystal meth)
  • OxyContin
  • Percocet
  • Xanax

Our firm not only handles the possession aspect of your drug charges but we also provide clients with aggressive defense when facing intent to distribute charges. These often apply in situations where clients have been accused of possessing large amounts of the drug in question.
