Raleigh Criminal Attorney

Raleigh Drug Crimes Lawyer

At the law offices of our Raleigh criminal lawyers, we can represent clients accused of drug crimes of any type. We have ample experience representing those facing charges of:

The most common drug crimes in the state of North Carolina involve marijuana, crack, cocaine, and methamphetamines. Most crimes are charged as misdemeanors, but some will be charged as felonies. Be advised that regardless of the type of charge, drug crime laws in North Carolina are very strict.

Our Raleigh Criminal Attorney Defends All Degrees of Drug Crimes

Simple possession or being found with less than 0.5 ounces of marijuana is the least serious of all drug charges. Simple possession will merit a sentence of up to 30 days in jail. Being arrested with more than 0.5 ounces of marijuana or any amount of any other type of drug will push your jail sentence up by weeks at a time, not to mention any fines you will be required to pay.

Oftentimes drug crimes are not limited to one person. A juvenile for instance may be under the beck and call of a gang much larger and powerful than he. By appointing one of our Raleigh criminal attorneys, you will have an understanding and compassionate lawyer on your side who will negotiate with the prosecution and the judge to get the best sentence possible.

In the case of those clients addicted to drugs, one of our Raleigh criminal lawyers can work with the prosecution and judge to receive jail alternative sentences to get a client the help he or she needs to turn their life around. A client could be sentenced to a rehabilitative program and probation that is, if they appoint a skilled Raleigh criminal lawyer.
