The Question of Illegal Search & Seizure
Our lawyers will immediately look at the tactics law enforcement used during the drug possession arrest. It is not uncommon for us to learn that police overstepped their bounds and conducted an illegal search and seizure. If they did, we may be able to have evidence thrown out. Without evidence, the entire case may be dismissed.
Even if the search was legal, there may be flaws in the case against you. For example, where did the arrest take place? Was it in a car? If so, were there other people in the car with you? There are issues of constructive possession that may need to be addressed. Ultimately, we take great care in examining the arrest, the evidence, and every aspect of your case in search of flaws that we can use to help you obtain a positive outcome.
Treatment, Not Punishment
In some cases, there are drug addiction issues that need to be addressed. While the prosecutor may be pushing for punishment, what is really needed is treatment. We understand the options available for treatment and alternatives to punishment in drug possession cases.
