Drug Crime Attorney
Arrested For Drugs and Narcotics?
Drug and narcotics charges range from simple possession of a controlled substance, to possession with the intent to sell, and/or to manufacturing of controlled substances, among other potential charges. If you have been charged with a drug or narcotics crime, there may be ways to keep the charges off your record and keep you out of jail. We have been able to get our clients outcomes such as:
- Reduced an intent to sell charge to a possession only charge
- Drug diversion programs or substance abuse treatment only
- Dismissal of the charges
- Prevented incarceration
If you face more serious charges that cannot be reduced, such as possession with intent to sell or manufacturing of a controlled substance, prison time could result. Depending on the facts of your case we will customize your defense. You need a skilled attorney to analyze the facts and laws around your case. Drug possession attorney Kory Mathewson has over 20 years of experience and will completely analyze your case to determine your best defense.
