Drug possession is one of the most commonly committed and charged offenses in criminal law. Law enforcement across Tennessee is stepping up its fight against drugs. As more people are charged, prosecution is stepping up the penalties to deter as much as possible.
The potential penalties for these offenses are stiff. To avoid the negative impact that these charges can have on your life, you need a skilled drug crimes defense lawyer on your side, advocating for your rights.
At The Law Office of Michael K. Williamson, we will fight to protect your rights.
In their effort to stem the tide of drug-related crimes, police officers make hasty arrests based on improper procedure. From improper search and seizure to illegal traffic stops, we are prepared to attack the means and methods used to arrest you for the offense. Without these basic pillars of the case, the prosecution rarely has an airtight case. We will fight to dismantle the charges brought against you.
These charges often involve drugs, such as marijuana, prescription drugs, cocaine, heroin and other controlled substances.
While we may not be able to get you out of the charges completely, we are very successful in negotiating deals and minimizing charges. We have an established reputation with local prosecutors, and we will advocate zealously on your behalf.
If an advantageous deal is not available, we are prepared to defend your case in court, fighting for your rights. We thoroughly prepare for each case and are ready to defend against whatever the prosecution brings.
To best understand the circumstances of your case and determine the best course of action going forward, please call our offices today at 931-647-8500.
