Effective Drug Possession Defense

When we were prosecutors, we dealt with drug charges every day. We know about the types of mistakes that police and prosecutors make, and we know that ample opportunities exist for defendants. As experienced Maryland criminal defense attorneys, we use our background as prosecutors to bolster our clients' cases. We effectively defend against drug crimes that include:

  • Marijuana possession
  • Cocaine possession
  • Heroin possession
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs

Simple possession charges are handled in misdemeanor district court. We also defend felony crimes, including possession with intent to distribute. The severity of the charges will be based on the quantity of the drug as well as any packaging materials, scales and cash found in conjunction with the drugs.

If you have no prior drug charge convictions, you may be eligible for probation before judgment. This will keep a conviction off your record, provided you comply with the terms of the probation.
