Fighting To Minimize Potential Consequences
Illegal drugs fall into one of five categories. Generally speaking, the severity of your criminal charge will depend on the type and amount of drug involved, among other factors, although all criminal charges are serious and all have serious potential consequences.
Over the course of my legal career, I have handled everything from minor marijuana possession charges to drug conspiracy and gang-related drug crimes. The goal is always to secure a verdict of not guilty or to have the charges dismissed entirely. However, if this doesn’t appear to be possible, I will do everything I can to minimize the consequences by seeking a reduction in charges, voluntary rehabilitation treatment, reduced fines or probation.
I Understand How The Other Side Works
In the past, I have been appointed as a special prosecutor on more than 30 criminal cases. Working on the side of the government has provided me with great insight into the criminal justice system. I know how prosecutors think and how they build their cases. I also know what it takes to point out the weak points of their cases. I am prepared to put my skill to work for you.
