After a Drug Arrest
After any kind of arrest involving drugs, whether you’re facing state or federal charges, you need to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can ascertain whether or not you were lawfully searched and be your advocate during this difficult time. Even first-time nonviolent offenders can face heavy sentences due to mandatory minimums.
