New York Drug Possession Attorney

Albany Drug Crime Defense Lawyer Represents the Accused in Drug Possession Cases

The fact that millions of Americans possess illegal drugs for their own use without apparent harm to themselves or others is not a valid defense before the law. The fact that your neighbors regularly smoke pot out in the open does not mean that your drug possession charges will go unpunished if you are convicted. You may be charged with drug possession, and sent to prison, even when your neighbors are not.

You can be charged with illegal possession of any of the following illegal substances:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Crack cocaine
  • Heroin
  • MDMA (Ecstasy)
  • Oxycontin and other prescription narcotics obtained without a prescription

The earlier you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer advocating on your behalf, the greater opportunities there are for achieving a favorable outcome.

A strategic defense in your case may involve a detailed investigation into the validity of the search warrant that was used to gather evidence. If the evidence was obtained illegally by law enforcement, your case may be dismissed.

A charge of possession of illegal substances is a serious matter. A state or federal criminal conviction may have serious consequences on your future and your freedom. Don’t take chances by waiting until it’s too late.
