An Experienced Drug Crime Lawyer Fighting For You
If you are found guilty of a drug offense, the conviction can have lifelong consequences. This may include the loss of your right to own a firearm, difficulty finding a job, difficulty finding housing, and in some cases, the loss of your right to vote. While first-time, low-level drug offenders may qualify for the Denver Drug Court program and avoid getting a conviction on their record, this is not typically available for more serious charges or repeat offenders. There are always ways to minimize penalties and in some cases, I may be able to get the charges dropped. I understand that prosecutors tend to be very aggressive in pursuing harsh penalties, and I have a great deal of sympathy for my clients who facing drug charges. I work tirelessly to minimize the impact of drug charges on the lives of my clients.
Representing Clients In All Types Of Drug Charges
The legal code classifies drugs into four “schedules.” Schedule one drugs are highly addictive and have no accepted medical treatments. This includes drugs such as cocaine, heroin and MDMA. Schedule two drugs are highly addictive, but are used in medical treatments. Schedule three drugs are medications approved for medical treatment that have the potential for abuse. Schedule four drugs are used in medical treatments and have minimal potential for abuse. Schedule four drugs include drugs such as Xanax, Klonopin and low-dose codeine.
As an experienced criminal law attorney, I have extensive experience representing clients facing the entire gamut of drug crime offenses, from petty offenses to felonies. This includes:
- Federal drug charges
- Unlawful use of a controlled substance
- Distribution, manufacture, dispensing, sale or possession
- Marijuana offenses
- Felony drug trafficking charges
To avoid the most extreme penalties, you need an experienced drug offenses attorney on your side. Remember that the prosecutors begin building their case against you immediately following your arrest, so you must act quickly to protect your rights.
