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. 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 talk to your own defense attorney before going to court and accepting a plea bargain. They can help you determine whether the plea is in your best interest and ensure that you are aware of the potential consequences of a plea bargain.

Offering Insight Based On Experience

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony drug charges, The Law Office of C. Matthew Shanks will look for all possible defenses to protect your rights. With experience both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney, our attorney can offer unique insight into how the prosecution will build their case against you and respond to those challenges.

We have helped clients defend against charges involving a variety of substances, including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription drugs, including prescription fraud.
