Charlotte Drug Possession Lawyers Are Here for You

Our skilled criminal defense lawyers handle a wide array of drug crimes, from minor infractions to very serious cases. We understand that even misdemeanor charges can result in significant criminal penalties and other consequences.

We can handle your defense against a variety of drug charges, including:

  • Selling of drugs
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug possession
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Unauthorized distribution of a controlled substance
  • Possession of a controlled substance without a doctor’s prescription

    These charges can involve a variety of banned controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, ecstasy, prescription narcotics, Oxycodone, and OxyContin.

    The levels of criminal charges associated with banned substances are classified differently from one drug to another. In any drug crime case, we listen carefully to our client’s version of how they came in contact with police and how police collected evidence. We look carefully at how law enforcement agents obtained the alleged evidence and if the substances involved are, in fact, what police claim they are. Very often, we find out during our thorough investigation that there is something fundamentally wrong with the criminal charges.*

    We may discover any of the following, and more:

    • Police violated our clients’ rights to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure
    • Substances put forth as evidence are not what they are alleged to be
    • At the time of arrest, clients were not informed of their Miranda rights, such as their right to speak with an attorney
    • Other constitutional rights of our clients were violated in connection with the collection of evidence or an arrest

      Arrested on a Drug Charge? The Time to Act Is Now.

      We have the skills, experience, and resources to aggressively pursue a favorable outcome in your case, which could be anything from a dismissal of the charges to a diversionary outcome such as drug abuse treatment in lieu of a criminal conviction.*

      Our firm offers consultations on evenings and weekends in our office or even at the jail. Contact us anytime at (704) 931-5535 to discuss your legal defense options with a Charlotte drug crimes attorney.
