Drug Possession Defense
With more than 25 years of experience and firsthand knowledge of prosecutorial tactics in cases of drug possession, we know how to build effective defense strategies.
We encourage people accused of drug possession to never plead guilty. Let us review the case first. No matter how strong the evidence may seem on the surface, there may be flaws that can be revealed with a closer investigation.
One of our first steps in marijuana possession, cocaine possession, heroin possession and other drug possession cases is to review the arrest. Did the arrest follow a traffic stop? Was a warrant served to search the home or place of residence? If we find reason to believe that your rights were violated and an illegal search was conducted, we may be able to use that information to request that evidence be thrown out or your case be dismissed.
We will look at the evidence from every angle and build a strong drug possession defense strategy. Even in cases where the evidence is strong, we may be able to use our knowledge of alternative sentencing options to better the outcome of your case.
Our knowledge allows us to handle all drug possession cases, including complex cases involving medical marijuana and prescription drug possession.
Cross-Border Drug Smuggling
Detroit’s geographical location makes it a hub for illegal drug smuggling. Law enforcement agencies patrolling the border between the United States and Canada are especially aggressive in their pursuit of individuals smuggling marijuana, Ecstasy and other illegal drugs. If you have been charged with illegal drug trade, speak to a criminal defense attorney immediately about your options.
