The pull that drugs have on the people who are addicted to them is something that can’t be denied. These men and women are willing to do almost anything to get the drug that has them ensnared. This can lead to them facing criminal charges related to the actions that are because of the drugs.
We know that when you are sitting back watching your loved one that you might have some concerns. Will they get help to overcome the addiction to end this vicious cycle? What kind of penalty are they facing now? Is there anything you can do to help? Does your loved one have any defense options?
All of these questions are common in these cases. It is nice to know that the defendant has a good support system, as long as you aren’t an enabler. When we take on a drug case, we evaluate the case to determine what options are available. From there we can work with the defendant to determine a strategy for their defense.
As hard as it is to accept, there are some instances in which a person who is convicted of a drug crime will have to do time in jail or prison. Hopefully, they take proactive steps to get clean during this time. In some cases, they can go through programs that can help them.
We understand that you only want what is best for your loved one. We can’t promise that a specific outcome will occur; however, we can promise you that we will put forth a concerted effort to defend your loved one.
