Drug crimes are prosecuted heavily at both the state and federal level. If you have been charged with a drug crime, it is important to fight back and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the criminal process.

Types Of Drug Offenses

I defend individuals in North Carolina who have been charged with:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug distribution
  • Drug trafficking
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug manufacturing (growing weed, making methamphetamine, making crack cocaine, etc.)

I handle cases involving all types of illegal drugs: heroin, cocaine, meth, marijuana and more. I also handle prescription drug crimes, which may include forging prescriptions, doctor shopping, illegal possession of prescription drugs and more.

Federal Drug Crimes

Certain drug offenses are prosecuted at the federal level. Federal charges may apply when a larger quantity of drugs is involved or when the defendant is accused of crossing state lines in the commission of the crime. Additionally, if a firearm was used in the commission of the crime, it will likely be considered federal.

Because not all lawyers handle federal cases, it is important to choose a lawyer who can handle your case at any level.

Possible Defense Options In Your Case

As an attorney with more than a decade of experience, I know what to expect when someone is charged with a drug crime. Questions that I am frequently asked by clients include:

  • Are there ways to keep this from becoming a permanent blemish on my record?
  • Are there ways to resolve a drug case, while avoiding a conviction?
  • Can my case be settled outside of court?

I will explore all possible defenses in your case. Did a police officer illegally search your vehicle or house? Were your rights otherwise violated during the investigation or arrest? These questions may come into play when building your defense.
