Criminal charges related to the use, possession or sale of illegal drugs can have a detrimental impact on a person’s future and freedom. Depending on the type of drug involved, drug charges can compromise career opportunities and even child custody disputes. Effectively defending against these charges is often a complex undertaking, requiring a legal strategy that is uniquely suited to the individual goals of the defendant.
Every drug case is unique. Georgia and federal drug laws do not change on a case-by-case basis, but the ways the laws apply can differ. The more serious the charge, the more serious the consequences of a possible conviction, including prison, fines and more. Confronting these charges should be done with the goal of securing the best possible outcome for the individual client, according to the details of the case.
Our attorneys have experience defending Georgia residents against a myriad of drug charges. This includes drug possession, possession with intent to distribute and drug trafficking. While charges related to marijuana may not seem as serious, a conviction could carry significant penalties. Our team knows how to pursue results in these types of cases as well. In addition, we provide an explanation of rights to our clients, and we can help attempt to recover money and property taken during a drug arrest by civil forfeiture.
The repercussions of a conviction of drug charges can reverberate throughout many areas of a person’s life. Fortunately, a person is innocent in the eyes of the law until proved guilty, and he or she has the right to a defense. We will tenaciously fight to ensure that our clients’ rights and best interests are well-represented throughout the legal process.
