How We Defend Drug Possession Charges

Regardless of whether the charges are for a felony or a misdemeanor, we get to work right away to mount an aggressive defense. After an arrest, we can argue at the preliminary hearing that the charges should be dismissed. If the police committed an illegal search, we will strongly assert your Fourth Amendment rights to prevent the prosecution from using the evidence against you. If going to trial is the best way to protect your interests, we will do that. In other cases, when the prosecution is willing to agree to probation, we can negotiate for that as an alternative to jail time.

Drug possession charges can vary dramatically, depending on the quantity you are accused of possessing. Even a very small amount of drugs can come with serious consequences and the penalties just get more severe as the amount increases. Remember to think long term; you want the case handled properly now so that this will be a speed bump and not a road block in your life and career. John Callahan are committed to that kind of defense.

Comprehensive Criminal Defense Services

When drug possession charges are involved, the consequences can go beyond the usual ones of incarceration and fines. We offer full service defense services to also help you with issues such as:

  • Forfeiture - If the State tries to take property that it claims was involved in a crime, we can fight it.
  • Bail - If there are any complications in posting bond, we'll guide you through the process.
