Drug crime allegations and potential penalties depend largely on the individual facts and circumstances of your case, including the nature of the alleged crime, the type and amount of drugs involved, and 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.
In cases involving more serious allegations, including serious felonies such as trafficking, distribution, manufacturing, and sales, the potential for lengthy terms of imprisonment make 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 are so vital to helping you take the right steps toward protecting your rights, exploring your options, and pursuing the best resolution possible. From investigating the circumstances surrounding your arrest and challenging the government’s allegations to pursuing reduced charges or alternative sentencing options, our legal team is equipped with the breadth of experience you need to make the most of your due process rights.
