Defending Against All Types of Drug Charges

Our law firm defends clients against criminal charges involving marijuana, cocaine and all other illegal drugs. Allegations involving drugs are among the most frequent criminal accusations made against people in Tennessee. The charges that we defend clients against on a regular basis include:

  • Simple drug possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug distribution and possession with intent to deliver
  • Prescription drug fraud

If you are convicted of one of these crimes, you could be facing some very serious consequences, including not only jail time but also a criminal record that could affect your employment and educational options for the rest of your life.

Helping You Avoid the Serious Consequences of Conviction

We may have several alternatives to defend against drug charges, depending on the facts of each case. Many drug arrests occur during traffic stops; if you were stopped and searched while driving, we will examine the records to see whether the police had probable cause to stop you.

In addition, evidence against you must be handled with specific procedures to ensure the evidence is reliable. If evidence is not properly gathered and safe guarded, it may not be admitted into evidence over the proper objection. Courts may also suppress or exclude evidence upon proper motion during the plea-bargaining process. In addition, the government has a duty to reveal certain evidence they have even if it is in your favor, but you have to request such evidence in a timely manner and with the proper procedure.

We are fully prepared to take your case to trial if necessary to pursue acquittal of the charges. It may also be possible to get your charges dismissed through a pretrial diversion program, though not everyone is eligible. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your options.
