We Navigate your Drug Possession Charges by Your Side

There are numerous potential legal issues involved in the investigation and prosecution of drug offenses. Was there sufficient legal reason to stop you (reasonable suspicion or probable cause)? If you gave consent, was your consent voluntary? If a search warrant was used against you, was it legally faulty? If your car was searched was it a legal search? The answer to these and other important questions come with years of experience in these cases.

Our team has been part of thousands of drug cases in our legal careers. During his time as a prosecutor, law enforcement officers sought our founder out for advice on when and how to search, how to write search warrants, and when it was appropriate to make an arrest.
