Frequently Asked Questions

Need Answers? We Can Help.

  • Questions

  • What are my rights after an arrest?

    Answer

    We believe that knowledge can be the strongest defense. If you have been arrested, know that you have the right to remain silent and you have the right to request an attorney. Both of these things (also known as your Miranda Rights) ultimately protect your 5th Amendment Right to avoid self-incrimination.

  • I think my rights were violated. Now what?

    Answer

    Though most police officers adhere strictly to search and seizure laws, unfortunately, overreaching policing practices could end up violating your rights during an arrest. Whether you think your rights were violated during a traffic stop or during a search, if you think you were arrested wrongfully, or were not read your Miranda Warnings, speak with us immediately. We could use this information to the advantage of your defense strategy.

  • Do certain crimes have more serious penalties?

    Answer

    Yes. Like any other type of criminal charge, drug crimes can be categorized in multiple ways, including misdemeanors, felonies, and federal crimes. Typically, misdemeanor drug crimes will have lesser penalties, while felony and federal drug crime cases could have more severe penalties. No matter what type of charge you face, it will be crucial to work with a defense lawyer who understands how to protect you.

  • What kind of penalties am I facing?

    Answer

    Because every case is handled on an individual basis and must be assessed with the unique circumstances involved, it is hard to determine the exact penalties associated with a drug crime. Consequences could include jail or prison time, court fees, drug treatment programs, probation, community service, or more.

What Factors Are Taken Into Consideration During Sentencing?

  • The type of drugs and narcotics involved
  • The quantity of drugs and narcotics

  • Overall criminal history of the defendant charged
