Newark Felony Drug Possession Attorney
For eight years, I served as a Deputy Attorney General (prosecutor) for Delaware. I know the law and the criminal justice system. I understand police work from the ground up, including search and seizure law and the mechanics of drug busts. I know the shortcuts that the police sometimes take and how to challenge weak cases and faulty police work.
As a criminal defense attorney, I defend clients accused of all types of misdemeanor and felony drug charges, including:
- Drug possession, including possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, painkillers, ecstasy, PCP, meth and other drugs
- Possession of drugs with intent to sell
- Drug sales or distribution
- Drug dealing (formerly trafficking)
- Prescription drug fraud
Mitigating The Effects Of A Drug Charge
In every case, I look for ways to exonerate my client or obtain dismissal of the charges. Sometimes, however, the state's case is strong, and it may make sense to work for a negotiated outcome. In Delaware, if you have no prior drug arrests or convictions, you may qualify for Drug Diversion/Track II, which can result in no conviction going on your record and no jail time, provided you comply with rules set by the court. I understand these programs and how to minimize the effect of a drug charge on your life and your future.
My experience as a prosecutor and a defense lawyer has taught me when to negotiate and when to fight. Aggressive and assertive, I always work to obtain the best outcome possible, to protect my clients' rights and to preserve their freedom. Whether you were caught up in a drug bust or charged with an amount of marijuana as a college student, I am committed to protecting your rights.
