Strong Defense Against Drug Charges
The severity of a drug charge depends on a number of factors including, but not limited to, how much drugs were in your possession and what your intent at the time was. Multiple charges can be confusing, and you may end up in federal court. Moreover, professionally licensed individuals face dual punishments in the criminal justice system and before their state licensing agency. This office has represented numerous professional license holders, including members of the medical professional community such as, doctors, nurses and pharmacists.

Minimizing The Consequences
The majority of charges can bring jail time but you may be able to avoid incarceration by successfully completing a drug treatment program. After completion, you would be placed on probation and have to remain clean. The sooner you can get off drugs, the better impression you will make in court.
Avoiding a felony conviction is an important part of any strategy. A felony conviction means more jail time and probation. And it will most likely cause you to forfeit any type of professional license that you hold as a doctor, lawyer or nurse.
