Drug possession charges can be life-altering. Depending on the amount and type of drug in question, drug possession allegations can be charged in state or federal court. The penalties can range greatly from jail time to probation and substantial fines. A drug conviction can also result in a two-year suspension of your driver's license.

If you are facing drug possession charges, obtain experienced legal counsel. Drug possession charges often stem from a traffic stop when illegal substances are uncovered, such as:
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
The evidence against you may seem incriminating but that does not necessarily mean you are guilty. I will review the prosecution's evidence, while seeking to uncover any evidence that may be used in your favor. For example, you may have been driving a family member's vehicle without knowing you were transporting illegal substances. An alibi, text messages or email records may help validate you were unaware of the illegal activity. I will also fight for a dismissal if the arresting officer failed to have a valid reason to pull you over or acted outside the terms of a search warrant. Every drug possession case is fact-specific. I will review every detail possible to develop a defense focused on protecting your rights.Questioning the Validity of the Drug Charges You Are Facing
