Delaware Drug Charge Defense Attorney
Delaware Attorney Fighting Drug Charges of All Kinds
Ever since the introduction of mandatory minimum sentencing, the potential consequences of even a misdemeanor drug charge means that every case is worth fighting.
Over the years, as a consequence of political and social pressure, I have seen Delaware drug laws and criminal laws get more severe every year. My Delaware Criminal Code book just keeps getting thicker and thicker. Human criminal behavior that used to bring three charges now brings five or six charges. Overcharging is a reality. One wonders if the punishment fits the crime in so many situations.
I am a trial lawyer. I will fight for your rights and freedom in court. That does not mean that I will not work hard to find a favorable resolution in your case prior to trial. It does mean that I will not look for the easy way out. I will not advise you to take a plea deal unless it is in your best interests to do so.
I care about my clients and what happens to them in the future. You should know that a guilty plea or conviction on a drug charge can carry long-term consequences. It can limit your ability to live and work where you choose. It can even affect family matters like child custody.
When a guilty plea or conviction is not an option, you need a fighter on your side. I will fight for you. I will fight for the most favorable outcome possible. Contact my office in Wilmington today for a free initial consultation.
