Georgia Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyer
Drug crimes are perhaps the most typical criminal charge an average person will face. Numerous otherwise law-abiding people will at some point in their lives use some drug illegally. Most will probably manage to avoid arrest, but some will not.
If you are arrested on a drug charge, whether it is for simple drug possession or intent to distribute, you are facing serious consequences. A drug crime conviction, even for possession of marijuana, can affect your life for years to come. It will affect your ability to find a job, can result in suspension of your driver's license and may even disqualify you from obtaining financial aid for college.
I encourage you to contact me if you have been charged with a crime involving any drug, including cocaine, heroin, meth, marijuana or even prescription drugs. My goal will always be to find ways to minimize or even avoid short term and long term damage to your life.
Certain jurisdictions, such as Fayette County, have specially created "drug courts". In appropriate cases, it is often possible to persuade prosecutors and judges to "divert" cases into these programs which stress rehabilitation and hold open the possibility of eventual dismissal of charges and expungement of the arrest record.
