Serious Drug Charges Require A Serious Defense Attorney
Although drug use is largely considered socially acceptable by younger generations, this is not reflected in our state or federal drug laws. In fact, a significant percentage of America’s prisoners are serving lengthy sentences for nonviolent drug offenses.
Even if someone is able to avoid incarceration, the stigma of a drug conviction can make it difficult or impossible to find a good job, a place to live and to pursue a college education. For these reasons and more, drug charges must be taken seriously and resolved with the help of an experienced attorney like those at the Law Offices of Lydon & Richards, P.C.
We take the time to talk through your charges with you, help you understand all your options and the likely consequences of each of them. Then, we get to work fighting or otherwise resolving the charges in the most favorable manner available.
No Matter What Charges You Are Facing, We Can Help
Drug cases are typically charged heavily and prosecuted aggressively. That’s one reason why it is so important to have an experienced defense attorney in your corner. We represent clients facing nearly any type of drug charges, including:
- Drug possession
- Possession of a prescription drug without a valid prescription (opioid painkillers, Adderall, Xanax, etc.)
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
Success in these cases requires a thorough understanding of the law and the circumstances surrounding the charges. Therefore, it is in your best interests to reach out for help as quickly as possible after an arrest. We prepare each case extensively, and we get to work as soon as clients come to us.
