Aggressive Drug Crimes Representation
If you or a loved one has been accused of a drug crime, it is important to understand that you have options. At Brown Paindiris & Scott, our experienced criminal law attorneys can help you understand the options available. We will review everything from the worst-case scenario to the best-case scenario. When we move forward, it will be to push for the best-case scenario, no matter how severe the drug charges are that you are facing.
What Drug Crime Have You Been Accused Of?
Since 1977, we have defended against all types of drug crimes, including:
- Drug possession (marijuana possession, ecstasy possession, cocaine possession)
- Drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug distribution
- Drug trafficking
The severity of a drug charge is often based on the amount of drugs in possession. For example, possession of a small amount of marijuana may lead to a fairly minor charge, while possession of a larger amount of cocaine could lead to a major federal drug charge. Our attorneys have the experience to take on drug charges at all levels.
Defense Against Federal Drug Charges
Federal drug charges typically involve large quantities of drugs or allegations of drugs being transported across state lines. Penalties associated with federal charges tend to be much more severe than state charges, so it is even more important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
Federal charges are often made only after a very detailed investigation by organizations such as the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). If you have not been charged, but you believe that you are the target of an investigation, contacting an attorney at the early stages can be extremely beneficial.
