An individual may face drug-related charges regardless of the amount of drugs involved or the extent of the distribution. Charges associated with drugs can be handled on either the state or the federal level. If a person engaging in drug-related activity is arrested by a local police, the case may never go beyond the state level. However, if a person is found to be illegally manufacturing drugs or is discovered doing drugs on federally-owned property, the case will be handled by federal authorities.
Having worked as District Attorneys, we have extensive experience in handling drug and narcotics cases and a keen understanding of drug crime charges and investigations in order to build more effective defense strategies against them. If you're facing more serious charges such as possession of drugs, possession with intent or felony drug possession, it is even more important to get professional help from an experienced drug crime lawyer. We also have experience with cases of specific drugs, including cocaine possession, marijuana possession, marijuana cultivation, and medical marijuana.
