Middlesex County Lawyer For Drug Possession Defense
Possession of illegal substances for personal use is, of course, against the law. An arrest on charges of possession of marijuana or cocaine can result in penalties, including jail time, and a criminal record. This is also true when charges involve other banned substances, including methamphetamine, Ecstasy, heroin, crack cocaine or prescription drugs without a prescription.
I am an experienced, well-established Middlesex County drug possession defense attorney with more than 20 years of experience. The vast majority of my clients have come as referrals from peers in the legal community and past clients. I have built my reputation for effective defense of drug offense charges on the firm foundation of my previous experience as a prosecutor. My firsthand knowledge of what happens in the district attorney’s office is a valuable asset for my clients.
Large Quantity Possession
Possession of the same drugs in quantities that are obviously much greater than appropriate for personal use is a more serious crime. Possession of large quantities seems to indicate that a person is planning to distribute drugs to others. Whether your drug distribution criminal arrest was based on actual observation of selling or distributing controlled substances or based on the quantity that police say you possessed, your drug crime case is likely to result in higher-level charges, with more serious outcomes.
Remember that the best way to protect your constitutional rights in the face of a drug possession or drug distribution arrest is to work closely with an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney.
Defending Against The Penalties Of Drug Conviction
I understand the negative consequences that you are likely to face if your drug crime arrest brings a conviction. Namely:
- You may lose your driver’s license.
- Your professional license may be at risk.
- You may go to jail.
- You may be slapped with very large fines.
- You may end up with a damaging criminal record.
