Busted For An Illegal Substance

Many people consider drug offenses to be a common charge and, therefore, not as serious as other criminal offenses. This cannot be farther from the truth, as drug crimes carry significant penalties such as jail time, community service, fines, asset forfeiture and loss of driving privileges. If you're facing drug charges in Pennsylvania, you need a skilled lawyer to protect your freedom and defend your rights.

Possession

While many individuals consider drug possession a common or even a minor offense, there are serious consequences that follow a criminal conviction. As experienced criminal defense attorneys and trial lawyers, we are prepared to represent clients charged in a wide range of offenses. These offenses can include numerous drugs, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription drugs including OxyContin, Vicodin and Percocet

Whether you've been charged with possession or constructive possession, it is crucial that you act quickly to protect yourself. In many instances, law enforcement officers overstep their legal boundaries, acquiring evidence through illegal search and seizure. Let our firm carefully investigate your charge and aggressively defend you.

Other Drug Charges

At Marinaro Law Firm, our attorneys also have experience defending clients against a wide range of drug-related offenses, including:

  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Growth, cultivation or manufacture of drugs
  • Prescription fraud
  • Trafficking
  • Doctor shopping
  • "Pharm-Parties"

In the majority of cases, we have noticed that most criminal offenses can be tied to some form of substance abuse. In Lancaster County, there is a drug court specifically designated for those who commit a crime but are addicted to drugs or alcohol. There is no stigma attached to drug court, as we are willing to help the people who need help. Contact our firm to learn more about legal options and the help available to you through the legal system.
