Review the options you have for a drug case

Any type of drug charge can impact your life now and long after the case is resolved. Remembering that this isn't simply a short-term issue can help you determine what you are going to do to address the matter. We realize that you might need some help to learn about the options you have. We can help you find these out so that you can make informed decisions at each step.

Many criminal justice cases are handled through plea deals. This saves time since the case won't have to go through a trial, but it comes at a cost. You will have to plead no contest or guilty to specific charges. In exchange, the prosecution will usually seek a specific penalty that you agree to as part of the deal. You should remember, however, that the court can refuse the prosecution's suggestion or even decline to honor the plea deal.

Taking each point of your case into consideration can help you decide what you are going to do. You have to look at what criminal penalties you are going to face. You also have to look beyond this because all criminal matters come with collateral consequences.

We realize that it is often hard to make decisions just because of the complexity of the case. Because nothing in the criminal court system is ever a sure thing until it happens, you should focus on making the best choices for your needs with the information you have at the time. We will help you throughout the case and will work on your behalf to protect your rights.
