Drug Charges

Drug Abuse can ruin your life.  Drug use can be a result of a serious medical condition brought on by an accident or genetic condition.  In many cases, legitimate drug use and narcotic medication results in addiction in drug abuse and to criminal conduct that results in legal proceedings.

No less damaging than a history of drug abuse is a record for drug related charges such as drug possession, possesion of marijuana, possesion of cocaine, heroin, oxycotin, codeine, possesion with intent to deliver, manufacture or cultivating of marijuana, forgery or altering of a prescription or script and theft charges that are drug related.

In many cases, our criminal defense lawyers can be helpful in getting the charges treated as a first time offense and placed on an alternative disposition program such as ARD or Drug Court that can result in the dismissal of those charges.  Once dismissed our office will fight to get your record cleared through the expungement process.
