Expert Advice About Drug Possession Charges
In any given drug case, we look either for ways to defeat the case against you on the basis of constitutional search and seizure problems, or determine your eligibility for diversion or treatment programs that can steer your drug case away from the criminal justice system. We work closely with our clients to see which of two possible approaches is likely to work best for them.
Our goal is to help you resolve the case on terms that minimize both your exposure to punishment and the consequences a drug charge arrest or conviction might have on your employment prospects, academic status, or professional license.
Our Portland drug charges attorneys represent adults and juveniles throughout the Portland area on a variety of drug possession or distribution charges, including:
- Methamphetamine possession, sales or manufacturing charges
- Cocaine or crack possession or distribution
- Prescription fraud
- Unlawful possession of prescription drugs or painkillers
- Possession or sale of hallucinogens, club drugs or so-called date rape drugs
- Possession, manufacture (growing) or distribution of marijuana
- Possession with intent to sell
If your drug charge case is a good candidate for resolution through diversion, substance abuse treatment or continuance to dismissal, our thorough understanding of the available programs allows us to use our negotiating skills to protect your record.
On the other hand, if the circumstances of your arrest or the discovery of drugs in your car or home indicate a likelihood that the evidence of possession can be kept out of court, we will likely aim for an early dismissal of the case against you.
