My goal as your lawyer is to get you the best possible result.

A drug charge may be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on:
- The type of drug involved. Drugs are divided into four penalty groups, of which group 1 includes those which may lead to the harshest penalties.
- The amount of drugs you were in possession of at the time of the arrest. If, for example, you had 200 grams of the drug, you will face a second-degree felony, which could result in up to 20 years in prison.
A drug charge may escalate to a federal crime in cases of drug trafficking, depending on whether you traveled to another state while in possession of the drug. Other charges include manufacturing drugs and aggravations like manufacturing in the presence of a child or using children to sell or distribute drugs.
A conviction could take away your fundamental rights and prevent you from getting a job, a mortgage or even voting. You have a future and a reputation to protect. Let me assist you through this process to fight for different results.
