Prescription Drug Charges

West Palm Beach Prescription Drug Charges Attorney

Palm Beach County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Police and prosecutors in Palm Beach County and throughout Florida have taken an aggressive stance toward prescription drug crimes. Many people arrested for prescription drug charges are surprised when they find out that the system treats them just as harshly as someone arrested for heroin or cocaine.

I am William Wallshein, a West Palm Beach prescription drug charges lawyer with more than 29 years of experience in the criminal system. In my criminal defense practice, I have helped many people accused of serious drug crimes, including prescription drugs. I understand that many of my clients are victims themselves: victimized by doctors who prescribe addictive painkillers and medicines and then do not give support to patients who become dependent; victimized by police and prosecutors who do not care that you are a good person who needs help, not a hardened criminal.

A Comprehensive, Strategic Approach

Like every drug offense, those involving prescription drugs are not taken lightly at my firm. I thoroughly investigate every case, locate witnesses and interview them, analyze the evidence against my client and scrutinize the conduct of arresting officers to determine whether they violated the law. Drug cases are often won on the basis of illegally obtained evidence. You can rely on me to develop a defense strategy that matches your unique situation.
