Salisbury Drug Charge Lawyers

Well-Respected Drug Crime Defense Attorneys Representing the Accused in Ocean City

If you have been arrested on drug charges, you need to know the answers to some critical questions. Did the police follow the law in investigating your case? Does the prosecutor have solid evidence against you? If someone informed against you, is that person credible?

An experienced Salisbury drug charge attorney can get answers to those questions. At the MacDonald Law Office, we know how to get those answers because, as former Wicomico County prosecutors, we dealt with these issues every day. We saw the mistakes police and prosecutors made and the opportunities that existed for defendants.

Fighting the Consequences of Drug Crime Conviction

We defend clients against a wide range of drug charges in Maryland involving illegal drugs such as cocaine possession and marijuana possession as well as prescription drugs such as Vicodin and OxyContin. Common charges that our attorneys handle include, but are not limited to, the following:

Conviction on any of these charges can have significant long-term consequences. Jail time may or may not be involved, but either way, the charge will end up on your criminal record, potentially affecting your future employment.

If you do not have a past conviction on a drug charge, you may be eligible for probation before judgment, which keeps a conviction off your record if you comply with the terms of the probation. We can help you decide whether this is the right option for you. We can also help you explore and apply for expungement of your record, if you qualify.

Addressing Police Misconduct in Searches and Seizures

One major issue in many drug cases is the search and seizure methods followed by the police. If a search was conducted unlawfully, the evidence produced by that search can generally be suppressed. For instance, seizures of drugs from cars during unlawful traffic stops — such as stops motivated by illegal profiling — can often be suppressed.
