Never Accept A Plea Bargain Without A Lawyer’s Guidance
When you are accused of a crime involving drugs or drug paraphernalia, you may feel that it is just something you can handle yourself by talking to the judge. That is a bad idea. You should always talk to a defense attorney before going to court and accepting a plea bargain that may not be in your best interests. Neither the prosecutor nor the judge is required to tell you about all the potential consequences that may come from a plea bargain. You should always consult with your own defense attorney so that you are aware of the potential consequences of a plea bargain.
Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony drug charges, attorney Matt Shanks will thoroughly investigate the police officer’s actions and search procedure in your case and look for all possible defenses to protect your rights. He has extensive experience in drug offense cases involving:
- Possession of controlled substances
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug manufacturing
- Marijuana possession
- Prescription fraud
- Prescription drugs (Such as Xanax, Alprazolam, Zoloft, Valium, Diazepam, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Acetaminophen, or Cymbalta)
- Possession of a dangerous drug
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
