Gainesville Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

A Conviction On Your Record Can Have A Serious Impact

If you are arrested on suspicion of a drug crime, you have more to worry about than time in prison and steep fines. A conviction on your record will stay with you long after you have served your sentence. Every time you look for a job or a place to live or apply for school, that conviction will show up on a background check. If you are ever arrested again, for any reason, you will most likely be treated more harshly by the police and the prosecution because of your record.

At time of sentencing, it is standard procedure for the judge to inquire with the prosecutor as to a person's criminal history; a person with a criminal history usually gets a stiffer sentence than one who has no history. When your freedom and your livelihood are at stake, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights.

Protecting Your Rights

You must have a lawyer with experience in drug crimes if you want to avoid a conviction. The criminal justice system is vast and complex. Our attorneys know how the system works. We will look for all available solutions in your case, including diversion programs like Drug Court, HELP Court, Family Court, Veteran's Court, residential rehab facilities, AVITA, RSAT and many more.

Each case is unique and will vary depending on your age, your criminal history, the type of drug, the amount of drug and the circumstances under which you were arrested. We will adapt our strategy to your particular situation. We will review the evidence the prosecution has against you and investigate it for ourselves, looking for weaknesses we can exploit.

We will also look at all of your options and explain them clearly so you have the information you need to make smart decisions. Our goal is to help you avoid a conviction by having your case dismissed or the charges dropped. We will take your case before a judge and jury if that is what it takes to protect your rights.
