Drug crimes in Michigan include possession, distribution, sales, cultivation and transportation. Depending on the situation, drug crimes are often categorized under the broad legal term of “drug trafficking”. When facing drug crime charges, a person can experience harsh penalties, especially if unprotected by a reliable criminal defense lawyer.
Being arrested on a drug charge can be a very confusing and upsetting experience. The charges against you may seem complicated and undeserved. If you are being investigated for drug crimes or have been arrested, do not hesitate when it comes to getting the help of a knowledgeable drug crime lawyer with the expertise you will need to get the best possible outcome. I have successfully represented many clients facing drug charges over many years.
Not all defense attorneys, or even drug crime defense lawyers, are equally qualified to represent those accused of drug crimes in Michigan. The harshness of the penalties depends upon what type of illegal substance was involved and the amount. For example, conviction on a charge of possession involving a few grams of marijuana may result in probation, drug rehabilitation, community service and fines, whereas a large amount could result in large fines, extensive jail time, even forfeiture of your property. As a skilled drug crime lawyer, I have extensive experience in defending clients accused of a variety of felony and misdemeanor drug crimes.
With ever increasing government attention on reducing illegal drug use, law enforcement agents and investigators sometimes violate an individual’s rights in searches and gathering evidence. Overzealous prosecutors may attempt to prosecute for crimes which were not actually committed or intended. When a client accused of a drug charge discusses his or her circumstances with me, my team and I carry out an in-depth investigation into every facet of the case, to pinpoint weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. I feel it is important to discuss the results of each step and any offers from the prosecution with a client. My goal is to win every case. With that in mind, I consult with each client to construct a compelling defense strategy which protects the client’s interests.
