Drug Charges

The use of, and addiction to, illegal drugs has become a significant problem in the past few decades and has resulted in a sharp escalation in crime, including robbery, shoplifting, and theft. The Maryland legislature has passed a number of statutes that provide severe penalties for the possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution, and sale of drugs such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and many other narcotic and non-narcotic drugs. Severe penalties are imposed for a conviction of these offenses. A conviction for possession of marijuana is classified as a misdemeanor and carries a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine, one year imprisonment, or both. A conviction for sale or distribution of a narcotic drug, such as heroin or cocaine, is classified as a felony and carries a maximum penalty of a $25,000 fine, 20 years imprisonment, or both.

If you are charged with a drug offense, you need the assistance of an experienced and skilled attorney. I have handled drug cases, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, for many years and know how to deal effectively with the issues that arise in these cases, including the legality of the search and seizure of drugs. I understand the approach of prosecutors to the trial of these offenses and can pursue plea bargaining, when this is in the best interests of my client.

I welcome the opportunity to talk with you and to discuss how I may be of service.
