Drug Crimes Over 30 Years of Experience Protecting Your Future

Cincinnati Drug Crime Lawyers

Fighting All Drug Crime Allegations

America’s “War on Drugs” and Ohio’s long-standing battle with the opioid epidemic have created a tough stance on crimes involving controlled substances. Today, defendants accused of drug crimes face serious penalties upon conviction, as well as lasting repercussions that can impact their freedoms and futures.

With stakes as high as these, anyone facing allegations involving drugs—whether it be a misdemeanor, felony, or federal crime—should be intent on working with experienced drug crime attorneys in Cincinnati.

Backed by decades of experience and thousands of successfully handled criminal cases, we have the insight and resources to help defendants protect their rights, freedoms, and futures.

Types of Drug Cases We Handle

  • Deception to obtain a dangerous drug
  • Drug trafficking/sales
  • Marijuana offenses, including cultivation
  • Manufacturing
  • Federal drug crimes

What Are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

Drug crime allegations and potential penalties depend largely on the individual facts and circumstances of your case, including:

  • Nature of the alleged crime
  • Type of drugs involved
  • Amount of drugs involved
  • Your criminal history

In some cases, particularly those involving first offenses, misdemeanors, and certain low-level felony charges, there may be opportunities for pursuing Diversion or Intervention in Lieu of Conviction, which upon successful completion, may result in a case dismissal and no conviction.

Some cases involve more serious allegations, including serious felonies such as:

  • Trafficking
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Sales

In these situations, the potential for lengthy terms of imprisonment makes a solid defense all the more important. In cases involving federal charges, which may trigger life-altering mandatory minimum sentences and potential decades in prison, working with defense attorneys who have experience handling federal criminal cases is crucial.

Drug crime allegations put a lot on the line, which is why timely action and legal representation is so vital to helping you take the right steps toward protecting your rights, exploring your options, and pursuing the best resolution possible.
