Protecting Your Rights When Facing Serious Consequences
I have extensive experience defending clients against a wide range of heroin charges in state and federal court. I am very familiar with the tactics that police and prosecutors do to obtain convictions from drug defendants in heroin cases.
If you've been charged with any heroin-related crime — including possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution, or a higher-level conspiracy charge — you need to contact a lawyer right away.
Heroin charges typically involve lengthier sentences at the state level and higher mandatory minimum sentences at the federal level, than charges involving many other drugs. You need an attorney who can identify the best possible strategies for avoiding or reducing these major consequences.
