Drug Charges

Drug charges such as drug manufacturing, dealing, possession, possession with the intent to sell, and trafficking are aggressively prosecuted by the government. Regardless of the facts of your situation, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel immediately to protect your legal rights. The Opioid epidemic created a highly unfavorable and biased public opinion concerning those who are charged with drug crimes and offenses. Do not rely on your constitutional right to receive a fair trial and receive a free public defender. The penalties for any drug crime is substantial and your future is at stake.
