  • Drug Charges

  • A drug possession conviction could have surprisingly serious consequences. A possession conviction could prevent you from working in the career of your choice. It can prevent you from applying for federal student financial aid. It can prevent you from getting a security clearance for your job. These are just some of the long-term consequences, and are in addition to potential fines and jail time (1 to 5 years).

    The most common criminal drug possession cases I see involving illegal drugs are for marijuana and cocaine, as well as heroin, methamphetamine and ecstasy. But I also handle cases involving illegal possession of legal, prescription drugs like OxyContin, Xanax, Ritalin, and Hydrocodone.

    I defend people (including pharmacy, hospital and clinic employees) charged with theft of controlled substances. I also defend people on charges of prescription fraud and "doctor shopping."

    There are usually several opportunities to clear your record. My goal in any felony drug possession case is to get charges dropped or to seek a diversion program. If I can't get the prosecutor to offer diversion, I am prepared to take your case to trial.
