Cookie-Cutter Defenses Aren’t Appropriate

On behalf of Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. posted in drug charges on Friday, September 2, 2016.

Drug charges are some very serious charges that have effects that can reach far beyond what a court could impose. These charges require a serious defense that isn’t a one-size-fits-all method. When you are facing drug charges, you need to have a defense strategy that addresses the important points in the prosecution’s case. We want to work with you to create an out-of-the-box strategy created specifically for your case.

There are different things that we have to look at when we are reviewing a drug case. We need to start with how the drugs were obtained. Was the search and seizure legal? Were there any possible errors that occurred during the handling of the drugs that are at the heart of your case? Was the chain of custody for evidence what it should have been? All of these questions are important in cases that involve drugs.

Besides those points, we also need to look at unique points in your case. This might include the possibility that someone else had possession of the drugs but you were charged with having them. It could also include finding out if the substances taken were actually drugs. Other points might also be present.

On top of looking at the prosecution’s case, we also need to look at ways to resolve your case. This might include diversion programs or plea agreements. We can explore these with you so that you can learn how they will affect you and what other choices you might have. All of these points come together to build your defense strategy against the drug charges.
