Drug Charges

Salisbury Drug Crimes Lawyer

As Former Prosecutors, We Know Drug Charges. Call (410) 348-7809.

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 crime attorney can get answers to those questions. At the MacDonald Law Office, LLC, we know how to get those answers because we dealt with these issues every day as former Wicomico County prosecutors. We saw the mistakes police and prosecutors made, so we know the opportunities that exist for defendants.

Whether at our Salisbury or Ocean City office, we're ready to discuss what we can do to defend you against drug charges and potentially help you avoid jail, fines, and a criminal record.

Types of Drug Offenses

We defend clients against a wide range of drug charges in Maryland involving illegal drugs such as cocaine or marijuana, as well as prescription drugs such as Vicodin and OxyContin.

Common charges that our attorneys handle include:

What Are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

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 with the expungement of your record, if you qualify.

Addressing Police Misconduct in Searches & 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. We serve clients throughout Ocean City, Berlin, and the surrounding areas.
