A conviction for a felony or misdemeanor drug charge can have significant and lasting consequences. A conviction can impact job opportunities, and can disqualify you from certain government jobs and/or educational programs.
Too often a person who has made a mistake is made to live with the consequences for a long time. I will use every resource available to avoid a conviction. In many cases, if you are willing to address any chemical dependency issues, diversion programs that serve as an alternative to conviction are available. If you are charged with a drug crime, you deserve an attorney who will work with you both to address chemical dependency issues and attack the state’s evidence against you.
