Possession of a Controlled Substance

In Pennsylvania, the penalties and consequences that follow a possession conviction can be harsh and even life-changing. Even if you are caught with a small amount, the consequences can be enormous. This is why it is crucial that you seek out legal counsel right away that will be by your side throughout the entire process.

We handle all aspects of drug possession case, whether it be tackle the legality of the seizure to helping you find counseling to deal with a possible addiction.

We utilize an investigator to help us research the evidence that has been collected against you as well as help uncover any other material that may assist in your defense. We will make sure every aspect of your case is thoroughly reviewed when defending your case.

Our goal is to build a strong defense and minimize the consequences that a  possession charge and conviction may have on your life. For instance, your driver’s license will be suspended with any conviction for possession of a controlled substance. A drug conviction could also adversely affect future employment opportunities.

We will work hard to negotiate with the district attorney for reduced jail, prison and probation time or aggressively prepare your case for trial. This may include moving your case to drug court or other diversionary programs such as accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD). Often, when these diversionary programs are completed successfully, your case may be dismissed and criminal record expunged. If your case goes to trial, our criminal defense team will work hard to pursue a not guilty verdict from a judge or jury.
