Evidence and Process is the Key to Drug Possession Cases

If a prosecutor is unable to admit drugs as evidence in a case, their case has an increased chance of falling apart or being ineffective. We have extensive experience in drug possession cases and will work to have this evidence suppressed by showing that it was obtained through an illegal search.

Drug possession arrests are often spur of the moment, with police lacking probable cause to search a person or vehicle. This is a huge factor in possession cases at the state level.
