A Long History of Prescription Drug Crime Defense
There are ways to avoid the harsh consequences of a drug offense conviction. New Jersey offers diversion programs for first-time offenders and treatment options that can decrease or eliminate jail time. Sometimes the charges can be dismissed completely because the police violated your rights and failed to follow procedure when searching your car or threatening you into making a confession.
We will work to minimize the effects as much as possible by challenging everything from the police investigation to the evidence presented against our clients. We will mount an aggressive defense against all types of prescription drug charges:
- Possession of a controlled dangerous substance
- Possession with intent to sell
- Prescription drug fraud
- Distributing drugs to a minor
- Forging prescriptions
Juveniles and young adults are a watch group for prescription drug offenses because these drugs are easily obtained without a prescription. Kids can steal from parents or borrow from friends. As with every juvenile crime, we work to keep the case in the juvenile court system and fight for alternative dispositions when possible. What your child needs is probation or to enter into a drug program if convicted, not spend his or her formative years locked up in jail, prison or a juvenile detention facility. Contact us to discuss your or your child’s prescription drug crime case. We meet clients at law offices or in county jail if they are currently incarcerated.
