Our Drug Possession Defense Practice
We handle all matters related to the defense of any charge of possession of illegal drugs or controlled substances, including CDS (Controlled Dangerous Substances) prosecutions. We defend people charged with illegal possession of any type of contraband drug, from marijuana, crack or cocaine to heroin, meth and prescription drugs.
Many of the possession cases we take involve arrests made pursuant to a traffic stop. It can be common for police to charge everyone in the vehicle if any drugs are found. When you hire us to defend you on possession charges, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your arrest. We will confirm that there was probable cause for any warrant or for any search, seizure or arrest. If drugs were found as a result of a traffic stop, we will evaluate whether police had reason to pull the car over. If drugs were found in your residence as a result of evidence gathered from an informant, we will carefully question the credibility and motives of the informant.
We will aggressively raise all potential defenses to any drug possession charges. If evidence was illegally obtained, we will seek the exclusion of evidence or the dismissal of charges, if appropriate. We will also evaluate whether pre-trial intervention may benefit you.
