Aggressive Defense Against Drug Charges
A conviction for possessing or dealing drugs brings harsh penalties, starting with prison time and a felony record. However, you are not convicted simply because the police found drugs and arrested you. You have rights and defenses under the law.
At Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, we know that your freedom and your future are at stake. We will vigorously advocate for you to fight the allegations or minimize the consequences. We can provide sophisticated criminal defense representation to counter the government’s considerable resources for drug crime prosecutions.
Do not say anything to police until you have talked to an attorney. We represent people throughout the West Valley, Greater Phoenix and Arizona. Call us at 623-806-8994 for a free consultation.
Avondale And Goodyear Drug Possession Attorneys
We have defended clients against a range of state drug charges:
- Drug possession (meth, marijuana, cocaine, etc.)
- Unlawful possession of prescription narcotics (OxyContin, Valium, etc.)
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Sale or transportation of drugs
- Manufacture or cultivation of drugs
Drug possession is often charged as a felony offense, even for a small amount. This means the possibility of prison time — perhaps a mandatory minimum sentence — if convicted as charged. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid incarceration, including taking your case to trial.
Former Prosecutors Fighting For Your Freedom
All of our criminal defense lawyers are former prosecutors. We are familiar with law enforcement practices and how drug crimes are investigated. That allows us to gauge the strength of the evidence against you and find the holes in the prosecution’s case.
We will explore every facet of the case for leverage: probable cause for traffic stops on the freeway, Miranda rights, search warrants, informants, the quantity of drug and evidence of intent. Our legal team will assert your rights at every stage, from preindictment investigation through hearings, trial and sentencing. We will take your case to a jury if necessary to spare you from jail and a drug conviction.
