In order to effectively combat your drug charges, our attorneys will review every aspect of your arrest to identify any potential violations of your rights. For example, in instances in which authorities confiscated drugs after an illegal stop or during an illegal search of the vehicle or premises, we can often achieve the dismissal of the charges due to our in-depth knowledge of police procedure and search warrant requirements under State law.
We have also helped countless clients to resolve their cases through diversionary programs, such as Conditional Discharge, Drug Court and Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI). Drug Court allow individuals to agree to reduced charges and avoid jail time by successfully completing drug rehabilitation.
