Serious Indiana drug offenses like possession with intent carry serious penalties. You may be facing a lengthy prison sentence and the prospect of that no doubt has you very concerned. We can help. Call for a consultation on your case today.
A good attorney will ensure that your rights are protected at every stage of the court process. You are absolutely not guilty until proven guilty in an Indiana courtroom. And it is our goal to prevent that from happening.
Whatever happened that lead to your charges and arrest, we can help. We’ve had clients that were simply “in the wrong place at the wrong time” and happened to be with someone with drugs, or who was buying drugs, unknown to you.
Even if you fear you may be guilty, there are many things we can do in your defense. You are entitled to fair treatment under the law and our Constitution. The police are required to follow certain legal procedures in gathering evidence against you in a drug case. If they don’t do it properly, your case should be dismissed.
And there are other things we can do at every step of the criminal legal process. We can contest evidence with a motion to suppress, or we can argue for a reduction in charges down to a simple possession, to take felony sentences and jail time off the table.
But everything depends on the exact facts of your case, and the situation you face. And we can go over all this as part of a free criminal drug charge case evaluation and legal consultation.
Please contact us as soon as possible to take advantage of our offer, and get the legal help you need. The earlier in a case our attorneys get involved, the more we can do to help.
