Standing Up To The State In Drug Cases
Drug charges are more than just a legal nightmare. They can also impact your reputation, your job prospects, your professional licensure and more.
At Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, we stand up for people from all walks of life who find themselves facing drug charges. For many people, this is their first serious encounter with the justice system in Ohio. Navigating that system can feel intimidating and overwhelming. Fortunately, you don’t have to do it alone. Our criminal defense trial lawyer previously worked as a prosecutor, so he knows how the other side tackles these charges. That gives him valuable insight into how to effectively stand up to the state in criminal cases.
Building A Strong Defense Against Any Kind Of Drug Charge
Examples of drug cases we commonly handle include:
- Drug trafficking
- Drug possession
- Drug manufacturing
There are many different drug crime penalties depending on the type and the amount of drug involved in your case, whether that is cocaine, prescription pills, heroin or even marijuana. Marijuana is one of the most common controlled substances that leads to criminal charges, and it is not yet legalized in our state, although it has been decriminalized in some cases. However, even a minor misdemeanor conviction of marijuana could lead to the loss of a driver’s license or the inability of a young person to secure student loans.
There are many times when law enforcement does not take the appropriate measures in your arrest and some or all of the evidence could be thrown out against you. Because of this, you may be able to gain an acquittal or reduction in charges.
