Drug Possession Attorneys In Annapolis

Drug Convictions Can Have Long-Term Consequences

Few people are aware of the long-term implications of a conviction for drug possession. Pleading guilty or no contest may seem like an expedient way to resolve a criminal charge as long as you are able to avoid consequences such as jail time. However, it is a decision you could regret for the rest of your life once you learn the long-term effects of that conviction.

Contact us 24/7 for a free consultation about your case. We will take the time to answer your questions and explain how a conviction could affect your life.

Keeping Your Criminal Record As Clear As Possible

Pleading guilty or no contest to a drug possession charge can result in a permanent criminal record. It can affect your employment, your insurance rates, your ability to obtain a professional license, and even your security clearance if you work for the government. Since the consequences can be so significant, it's important to discuss your case with an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Our lawyers can help you understand the effects of drug charges on security clearances. We also protect the rights and futures of college students who have been arrested for drug crimes.

Do I Have A Defense To Drug Charges?

Even if you think you are guilty of possessing drugs, you may have defenses available to you that would result in dismissal of the charges or a not-guilty verdict at trial. If this is your first offense, there may be ways to resolve the charges that would not result in a criminal conviction.

Many drug cases are won or lost based on your encounter with police and how they obtained the drug evidence. Our lawyers will work to determine if police conducted an illegal search and seizure and whether they have enough evidence to prove that the drugs were in your possession. Even if police have a strong case, we will look for mitigating factors that can result in a favorable plea bargain.
