Strong Criminal Defense Against Drug Charges
Illegal drug activity is a hot target for law enforcement and legislators who wish to be viewed as tough on crime. Mandatory sentencing laws have raised the stakes, and nonviolent drug offenders now account for an alarmingly large percentage of the U.S. prison population. Many factors, including everything from the type and quantity of the drug all the way to the purpose of the drug activity and past criminal convictions can all impact the classification of the offense and the penalties you could face if you are convicted.
