We represent clients throughout Tennessee in all drug-related charges, including:
- Simple possession
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug trafficking
- Distribution of drugs
- Manufacturing of drugs
- Importation of drugs
- Drug cultivation
Certain drug trafficking charges carry a mandatory, minimum prison sentence. This could be anywhere from one year in prison to life behind bars, depending on the severity of the charges. The prosecution can also take on probation, heavy crimes and driver's license revocation of up to two years.
The severity of the penalties is directly related to the charges that have been brought against you. With the help of a skilled drug charges defense lawyer, you can have your charges minimized based on certain factors.
We will help to present mitigating factors, including good behavior, first offense and character witness testimonies that will show that this behavior is inconsistent with your usual behavior.
We will also thoroughly review the evidence of the stop or search that produced the evidence against you. Often there are inconsistencies in the procedure of the stop, and some of the evidence can be suppressed.
