If you’ve been charged with any drug offense, from simple marijuana possession to cocaine trafficking, you have a right to an aggressive criminal defense. Hiring an attorney who is prepared to devote time and resources to your case can make a big difference.
We Defend Against All Types of Drug Charges in Tennessee
Our expert criminal defense attorneys defend 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.
We defend against:
- 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 a Drug 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, the evidence against you must be handled with specific procedures to ensure the evidence is reliable. If evidence is not properly gathered and safeguarded, 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.
Additionally, 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.
