Drug defense strategies have to factor in the type of charge

Drug charges are serious matters that must be handled in the most appropriate manner for the case at hand. When you are the one who is facing the charge, you have to think carefully about what you are going to do. One thing that you have to do is to consider the severity of the penalties that are associated with these charges. We can help you learn what these are and how you might be able to minimize them.

Your defense strategy must be based on the factors leading up to the arrest, as well as the factors pertaining to the drugs. The location of them, the quantity and any statements that were made can all be points that need to be addressed. We can review your case to determine what things need to be covered in your defense strategy.

The type of charge also matters since you have to handle drug possession much differently than you would handle drug trafficking. One way that these differ is the options that you might have. There may be a drug court or diversion option for possession charges as long as they aren't associated with violence.

We know there are likely many questions that you have about your defense. We can help answer these so that you are able to make decisions about your strategy based on that information. Take the time to think about these but don't ignore the charges. They aren't going to go away so you need to make sure that are putting forth an effort to make the best choices for your case.
