In some jurisdictions, the state may offer certain individuals charged with drug crimes alternative types of approaches often known as drug diversion or drug court. We will discuss those with you, determine if they may available in your case, and if so, whether the alternative approach makes sense given your particular circumstances.
In defending against drug charges, we look for all available defenses which include what people often think of as technicalities, but in reality are your constitutional rights. We have helped many clients secure favorable results in their drug cases by identifying flaws and problems in the state's case and effectively showing speedy trial violations, defects in charging documents, probable cause violations/unlawful stops and arrests/Fourth Amendment search and seizure violations, improper confessions/statements, discovery violations and the inadmissibility of certain evidence.
In those situations where cases go to trial, our extensive experience allows us to use methods of pursuing an aggressive and effective cross-examination of the witnesses for the state. In defending against drug charges, we will look to challenge all issues, which often will include allegations of constructive possession, the propriety of the chemical analysis and the chain of custody of the drugs.
If you have been charged with any crime in Annapolis, Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County or anywhere in Maryland involving drugs or controlled dangerous substances, we can help you.
